Found the food pretty non exciting. Chips ok at best, Salsa ordinary. Explains why not very busy. Place in Celina is better

We weren't sure of this but was recommended by a local. The restaurant is sort of hidden, large inside. The food was so fresh and great. The prices are wonderful. Don't expect a margarita because county is dry. They do fix some virgin drinks.

We eat here every visit to Livingston and have for years. The food is always consistently good and fresh. The owners are very pleasant. Many times we visit with a party of 10 or more, but it is no problem. There is usually a TV...More

A block or two from the town square, down a side street, you'll find El Rey. It's a real family run Mexican restaurant, with good home Mexican cooking. No alcohol served, but the food is really good! Great value.... We love this place for lunch.

Great mexican food. Friendly people. Fun place to go after church for a great mexican dish. This place has been serving Overton county as the Best option for Mexican food for years.
