Unique family tiny mexican restaurant...home cooked. No gringos in the kitchen authentic mexican mama. Meals are great, restaurant is old and looks it, don't let the rustic dirty look scare you. This is an authentic barrio food shack. Cheap

Knowing I was going to be in this area I made sure I was near here for lunch. Wasn't disappointed the food is great. I had a shredded pork taco and ground beef taco. I've eaten here before and will continue to return I have to say the shredded pork Taco was over the top on the beef taco was just ok. The food tastes deliciously fresh. I will return here and consistently and eat my way through the menu and on top of all that my lunch was less than $5!

Trust the reviews on this place and don't judge on exterior alone. El Primo lives up to it's name. We rolled the dice on this place while driving from Tampa to Bonita Springs and were not disappointed. It's so good - portions were huge! They have such a variety here (the menu takes up almost the whole wall). You'll find something good I bet! I'd guess the original building was some kind of burger stand. The inside has an 8ish person bar along the window and there are more picnic tables under the covered porch. We came on a Sunday post-lunch about 2:00pm and we just beat a rush. The inside fills up quick. Food came out hot, fresh & delicious - make sure to try the green & red salsas kept in the drink cooler!

I have eaten here 3 times this week after passing it up for years. The prices are so reasonable. The best guacamole I have ever had for $2.75 (small size but it's not that small). Imagine that you pay at least nine dollars for a bowl of guacamole in a so called fancy Mexican restaurant. I also had the Mexican tacos which are corn tortillas with just onions, cilantro, lime. Their tamales are the best tamales I have ever eaten. Not dried out at all and the perfect consistency. I also had the shrimp tostada which is also really good. I would highly recommend this place for a quick lunch or a snack. Not much seating inside and picnic tables sitting outside but again so worth it.

We've been working in this area for the past month, and have driven past this place, always remarking that it probably has great Mexican food. It absolutely does. The tacos were served perfectly and the beef was tangy. The lime and rice pudding drinks were a perfect match for the food. The rest of the menu, shown by photos on the wall, all looked delicious and authentic. The chef definitely knows what he's doing, we'll be back again, maybe sit outdoors. And the place is clean, nicely painted and quite comfortable. An enjoyable experience.
