Always check your order when getting your food to go. Got ripped off for a second time, when I arrived home two dinners I ordered and paid for, where missing?? There will be no third visit. Go to the mex market at the other end of the center. Much more for your money. Much better help, and no rip off.

If you want a quick, but big step up from fast-food meal, Celinda's is a good choice. I recommend the rolled chicken tacos. The chips and salsa are great. Their breakfast burritos are yummy too.

Chips and guacamole are authenticly Goog. Haven't tried everything on their menu but I,m working up to it. I just get stuck on my favorites, then find a new favorite. Love to grab take out, but there is a nice table area to sit and slow down a bit. I guess I would be classified as a regular.

This used to be my favorite restaurant when at work. I will not go back. Last week my credit card was hacked from their system and the food was horrible. I have seen it go down hill once the sons took over. They never smile or are thankful for your business. I have taken my business elsewhere.

Best chips & guacamole! Food is excellent, and can be prepared to order, Armando runs a tight ship! Review the menu before you order, and check out what is available in the cooler near the order counter, and do not forget the selection of chips behind the door to your left!

I've been to Celinda's quite a few times in the past years. Recently I have to say I was sad that perhaps they've given up on serving good "homemade" taste. I've been twice this month and tried something different hoping that it was just my food choices. Recently I ordered their Burrito in a bowl, enchiladas, chicken burrito and I'm... More

While eating Mexican food at El Torito Grill is enjoyable, tasty, and fun; it is not Mexican food as in what people eat in Mexico. And while that other type of food is delicious, keep in mind that it has been altered or made more palatable for the mass markets they serve. Now, if you want to try authentic Mexican... More

I come here often enough. It is always a safe choice when I am not sure what I want for lunch. Food is decent and is priced all right.
