The ambience was good and the staff was very welcoming. The food was however deprived of any spices and was very bland. Good for people who like spiceless food.

A mid-level restaurant situated at a nice location. The food and service are good and the facility is very spacious. Complimentary freshly made nachos and salsa are served before the main course. Worth visiting at least once.

I went to El Chico's with an open mind, but high expectations. The restaurant located next to Kingdom School on King Abdulaziz road has an excellent and attentive staff. The food is pretty much the same caliber you would expect to receive in the USA.

The one on Tahlia is closed. Just north of the old site at the traffic circle is a new El Chicos on Abdullaziz going toward Kingdom Hospital on the right hand side near 5 Guys Burgers.
