When arriving in the early evening, we were greeted by a group of employees all hanging out together, talking and giggling. The restaurant was near empty yet we were seated next to the area where the employees all seem to -loudly- congregate, maybe it's right by the kitchen... couldn't quite see but certainly hear. When the waitress (I had the... More

We have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The service is always tops (even in busy times) and the food good. It's a bit on the heavy side with cheese, but always flavorful...and good rice. But if you are looking for the real thing take a ride to the west side to Tortas el Rey... More

When we arrived the restaurant was busy, but we didn't have long to wait for a table. Our server was friendly and quickly brought over water, chips and dip. We had the special, seafood burritto,......absolutely delicious, really liked the green sauce. Had the house margarita......also very good. We enjoyed our meal and will go back.

Service is friendly and casual. Food is average. Music on weekends adds to the ambiance, but is not exceptional.

I live in Fountain Hills and love El Encanto. Every time I have been there to eat, the food and service have been fabulous, always fast, very hot. The people who work there are very customer oriented and friendly too! Prices are extremely reasonable for the amount of food you receive. I always end up bringing home a portion for... More

Went there with family and friends. We had made a reservation but still had to wait 10-15 mins for our table. After we sat down, we had to wait another 10 minutes for the waiter to come to our table. I asked for water, just water. It took 3 reminders to the waiting staff and another 15 minutes to get... More

If you are in the Fountain Hills area definitely check out this wonderful Mexican restaurant. My son and I arrived on our travel day from the east coast very hungry. The food was so delicious. Monday night was seafood enchilada night and that is what I ordered. He had a chicken chimichanga. Food was fresh and authentic and just so... More

We've been here several times over the last few years and generally the food is pretty good and the atmosphere is nice. However, this time I was quite surprised when I got my bill and EVERYTHING cost extra. My waiter asked if I wanted red sauce or green sauce on my burro. I chose red. My bill showed an extra... More

We enjoy going to El Encanto when we get that irresistible urge for Mexican food and fortunately it is right up the street from home. Margaritas are very good! Their Salsa is not my favorite. I order the Pollo Fundido (smaller portion) and it is delicious! My husband loves the chicken enchiladas. I have also enjoyed the shrimp tacos. Inside... More
