Food was ok. Margaritas were very weak. Unsure if any tequila was in them. I had to order a shot of the House tequila on the side to add to the Margarita. They then charged me more for the shot than they did for the...More

We've been to El Cerro this summer,and really liked this place, Despite it was busy, we got everything on time, it's not like regular Mexican restaurant, one can find a variety of different dishes the others don't have. Come back for sure

I love the taco salad and the mini-chimichangas as well as the specials they run. Everyone is so gracious and willing to help us if we don't know exactly what we want. The margaritas are wonderful. Easy to find a parking place Close to several...More
