Love how our meal always is hot when served. Hate "luke warm" food when I'm at a restaurant. The servers are always nice too. Love it when we go there when they have live music. Make u feel like u r in Mexico.

Visiting in the area, we had the hankering for Mexican and found El Gitano. Lively vibe once we entered, while it is within a "shopping mall" type of area - the place was hopping and completely full on a Friday night. Mariachi band playing from...More
