We have eaten here a few times, and the food has certainly been up to par for a typical Mexican restaurant. The burritos and Mexican dinners are good, if not spectacular. The Margaritas are very good, as are the chips and salsa. The service is...More

We really enjoyed our dinner at El Mexicano. There is a nice variety of Mexican entrees and the margaritas are my favorite of all the places I've tried in town. My husband likes to do taco Tuesday as many of the places in town have...More

Not the best mexican food at all. We both ordered Chimichangas and I have never seen a Chimi made they way they did it. I ended us being sick after eating only half and did not finish. Will not be comming back here again.

We stop here every time we go camping to have a last meal before the realities of city life set in. It's similar to a Los Betos, but it seems better in the pine trees. I always go with the bacon breakfast burrito and a...More

After eating here a few more times we've decided to downgrade them to poor due to overall hospital like bland tasting ingredients. The beef was flavorless. Paysonites want someplace good to eat but this is another dud.
