This place is more on the pricier side but the food was good! Unfortunately you can not purchase single tacos from here, still good food. Enjoy!

We've been eating here for over 20 years and have never been dissapointed. Authentic Mexican food, quick service and a great outdoor seating area. When our sons were at U.F. we came more often but we never miss a chance when we're in the area...More

I ordered the steak burrito and the steak was over cooked and tough. It wasn't marinated like it said on the menu plus there was construction going on so loud that if you wanted to sit outside you couldn't hear yourself think. The chips and...More

This is a Mexican themed take out restaurant. The restaurant has open air seating, with shelter for many of the tables. There are roll down shades to help with the sun under the roof so you can watch 1 of the 4 flat panel screens...More

I usually enjoy their food (sometimes more than others) and there are definitely some cheaper options, but some of their items are overpriced for fast food.

Consistently satisfying , quality Mexican take out. Fresh ingredients, generous portions, broad menu, fast drive-up service. A staple backup supper plan the whole family can agree on, for locals with competing family obligations.

I have tried El Indio 3 times in my 10 years in Gainesville and each time was a disappointment. The last time I received food poisoning at no extra charge with my soggy tacos. Each time the food was not even worth the cheap price....More

I am no vegetarian but I could eat an El Indio veggie quesadillo daily. Black beans, guacomale, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, sour cream, and of course melted cheese, with great homemade salsa. I can never pass them up to try anything else. My husband feels the...More

El Indio doesn't pull any punches, serving straight-up tacos, burritos, nachos and more, the way you'd expect them to be served, at super reasonable prices. It's the type of tacos you'd make at home on taco night, prepared fresh and fast. Tempeh and veggies are...More
