El Indio is a neighborhood go-to offering quick and tasty Mexican food. This one is on NW 34th Street near the YMCA. Soft tacos offer fried fish. Beans and rice come with combos. Order at counter or use drive-thru. It’s been there since at least 1991. Patio seating available. Lots of ice cream choices, too. Always good!

We've been coming here for years. The folks that run it are very friendly. It's recently gone through a bit of a make over. A nice improvement. It's very cleaning and their is seating inside and out.
The food is good and there is quite a variety on the menu.

We only went here once, but we ordered a variety of things from the menu and none of it was very impressive. I like that it is a drive-thru and that it is cheap, however to say that it is authentic seems a bit of a stretch. It is actually pretty reminiscent of Taco Bell.

This little restaurant has always been a great place to grab a quick Mexican meal for a very decent price. What most people don't know is that they make a really good Hamburger & French Fries meal. Tonight was no exception! I originally was going to hit McD's drive thru, but decided on El Indio last minute, and I do not regret it at all. I was given a VERY fresh set of fries (perfectly salted) and a fresh carefully prepared burger (neatly wrapped in tin foil for a no-mess ride & eat experience. The meal with the drink was less than about 8 bucks. Yes McD would have been a little cheaper, but it would not been nearly as fresh and tasty. Good job El Indio Team, another satisfying trip to your restaurant!

We've been going here for 25 years. They recently renovated the seating inside and out. Plus they spruced up the signage outside. It's very good casual Mexican at reasonable prices. Dine-in or drive-through. Combo plates are tasty. Soft-serve ice cream for dessert!
