Higher quality and a more varied menu than the usual tacos/enchiladas/fajitas Mexican fare -- for example, I had snapper Veracruz. Mid-range prices. Be warned that there's a preschool in the same shopping center, so parking can be crazy when parents are trying to pick up their kids (any time before 6).

A little disappointed- fish tacos were not fresh. However, others tried quesadillas and enchiladas, and stated they were very good. Chips and salsa were good.

El Mirasol at Alon has good food and it's very nice inside. It's in an easy central location to get to. There are lots of options on the menu. I had shrimp enchiladas and they were really good. We did an early dinner on a weekday and there was no wait. I'm sure weekends or peak times are busier of... More

My relatives go there several times a month and I can see why. Not only do they have great food they know how to accommodate you.

I had the enchiladas verdes. Very tasty but I felt the white meat chicken inside was a bit too dry. The refried beans and rice were very good. But my most favorite thing was the frozen margarita. It is hard to please me with a good one and they delivered. My wife ordered the snapper listed as market price on... More

We all get together here at least once a year (don';t know why not more) and have a great time, w/ great food. They accommodate a large crowd w/ no problem. The food is always great and the service is excellent.

I went back to this restaurant recently and tried the cheese enchiladas....they were so very, very good! I got mine with cheddar cheese, but you have a mozzerello alternative, too.

We have been come to El Mirasol for years and have made a point of coming here even when we didn't live here. In our opinion it is the best Mexican food in SA, and worthy of visiting from anywhere you are staying. We prefer the original location over the new Alon location for ambiance and familiarity. Food quality is... More

Went for our anniversary, nice atmosphere and quick service. Lobster, shrimp, and snapper enchiladas were good. My husband enjoyed his nachos. Best margaritas I've had by far. You only need one lol. Their tres leches cake was great too.

I ate here with my Bible Study group of friends Saturday night. I had reserved our tables ahead of time and they were ready as soon as we arrived. Service was excellent! All the staff was super helpful and friendly. I had the chicken enchiladas and they were great! Margaritas are a little pricey but are very good. Overall, it... More
