SO much competition in the genre that El Mundo is not that awesome anymore. I had not been in a while and wanted to stop in for dinner. We ate upstairs with the "creepy" masks and such, which people may think cool but me, not so much. Gives the place a dirty feel and all of the El Dia Los... More

My son took me to El Mundo's for a birthday dinner. The place is very quaint and kind of creepy, but most people probably like that. We checked in the first floor first since we never been there. It is where you order at a counter and come get you food when it is ready. It is not fancy and... More

I like coming here, especially because of the decorations - the food is quite good, and you can't beat Frankfort Avenue. My only complaint is the tight space. It'd be nice if you weren't a foot away from the next table. I know some people like that, which would make this the perfect place for you to go!

It's hard to explain, but you won't be disappointed. Seriously some of the best food in Louisville! Amazing margaritas and mojitos and some seriously delicious queso!

I moved here a year ago and this is my favorite Mexican Restaurant in town. The food is great and the service is pretty good. They have the best frozen Margaritas. I have met the owner a few times and she is the sweetest person. If you have not tried this place check it out. Make sure you eat upstairs... More

My friend and I were very disappointed with our experience at El Mundo last Saturday. The exterior looked quaint and fitting for the Frankfort Ave restaurant scene. We walked inside to an extremely small area - seated maybe 16 people with 4 of those seats being bar stools at the front window. Here you can order food/drinks and your name... More

I visited here with a colleague during a work trip and really appreciated the vegetarian options. We ordered two dishes (Spicy Bean Tacos & veggie special of the day) and shared them between us. The portions were very generous and we enjoyed the food. The sweet potato in the special were a bit undercooked for me. Sauces were delicious and... More

Great food with a nice flare. Excellent service and very friendly. Seating is a bit crowded and can be a little noisy. Great atmosphere. Also has an outdoor seating area. Fun place to visit. We would certainly return.

The Chili Rellenos are fantastic as is the guacamole! The Top Shelf margaritas are maybe the best margaritas I have ever tasted. They go down a little too easily! Fish tacos were great. Nachos app was great, too. Actually, every dish I have tasted at El Mundo has been really, really good. The patio is lively and the staff always... More
