My new favorite place to eat when visiting the city. I had the enchilada suizas which were incredible (shredded chicken and salsa verde). Loved their margaritas, warm chips and salsa, and the guacamole (which they make right at your table). Clean restaurant and very friendly wait staff. Prices all reasonable. We will definitely be back!

Great place for casual meal with family and friends. We tried quite a few dishes on several occasions when dining there. They were always tasty. Loved the tortilla chips served warm. Wished there was more alcohol in my margarita though. I could hardly taste it. Staff was always very kind and accommodating.

We went here for my son's birthday. We had a great experience with some outdoor dining on bustling East Carson Street. Good food and service.

My family visited Emiliano's after my cousins graduation for a late night bite to eat and some drinks. We ordered a couple of pitchers of margaritas (two pitches accommodated 8 people with a spare refill or two), which were average yet tasty after sitting for so long at the ceremony. As an appetizer we ordered the dip trio, which came... More

We frequent this restaurant weekly. We usually sit at the bar. The food is consistently good. Awesome guacamole. The beers are always cold, and the service is always friendly and fast. Evan at the bar delivers excellent service. Highly recommend!!

Love the guac and my favorite dish is the favorito.If you like margaritas get only original, others lack flavor. Hard to park in the south side, go early.
