I hesitate to write this review as I selfishly want to keep this place a secret! Amazing, authentic Yucatan food and drinks. Fabulous mojitos. Rey has been a waiter for 20+ years - he is great and so hospitable. LOVE El Moro!

Away from downtown, but well worth the time to drive out here. On our last visit I had the Cubano Special (sorry I don't have the exact name). Extremely tasty slice of thin beef. If Ray isn't too busy he'll share some of his famous family wisdom and you'll always get a very warm welcome.

I can’t say enough good things about El Moro! The atmosphere, the waitstaff, the drinks, the FOOD.... OMG. I had the best shrimp fajitas of my life and their tortillas are out of this world. A hint of sweetness to them? I don’t know but they are amazing. The pico was great but they truly hit it out of the park with their green chili sauce. It’s got kick for sure, but the flavor was mind blowing. Definitely a can’t miss stop.

We went to this restaurant with friends on Super Bowl Sunday. We had an awesome time and loved the food. The owner was great and thanked us for coming. Plan to go again next year.

We are big fans of this place. Last night our party of 4 arrived ready to drink and eat. The restaurant was more crowded than usual with at least 2-3 large groups of over 10, so we understood this would tax the kitchen and were prepared to be patient -but not to be marginalized. We had to ask to order food after waiting 40 minutes. The place was chaotic and super noisy -more from the kitchen clangs and bangs than the guests. Our table was constantly being squeezed to the rear by the group table which kept expanding throughout our dinner. We received a plate of cold French fries 10 minutes prior to any of our other food; and when we got our meals, one was incorrect so we never got to all eat together due to delays of plating. It felt like staff and owner were focused only on the large groups and we got lost in the chaos. We waited another 20 minutes for our bill, paid it at the back- and the kicker- when we went to leave our gratuity on our table, it was gone-moved immediately to seat the ever growing table next to us. We couldn't find our server/owner Ray, and proceeded to exit. As we were getting into the car, he came running out to ask about his tip-this was probably the only time we received any attention all evening. It made us very uncomfortable to be shaken down for a gratuity when it was clearly apparent that the service had been off and we had been neglected. We thought he was coming outside to apologize for the less than adequate service, but instead we were tip shamed. Shame on you, Ray. Not cool
