What a surprise to find this outstanding Mexican restaurant in the middle of "no where". Actually it's close to Blue Hill, Stonington, and Castine. This is my favorite restaurant in Maine. Try the lobster tacos! Heck, try anything...you can't go wrong!!!

Family run. Literally (as they say on their website) "a take-out joint in a barn in the woods". There is seating inside for about 8. But outside they have picnic tables for kids and adults! And also a little covered area for those rainy days....More

This is a clever restaurant run by creative, clever people. No, its not super spicy hot Mexican food, but its a blend of typical Mexican dishes with local crab, lobster, smoked salmon and fresh greens. All very healthy stuff. Space to eat inside or outside....More

El El Frijoles, Mexican Food is a California-Style Taqueria in a converted barn in the woods. We serve delicious mexican food made from the freshest, local and organic ingredients, in a fantastic family-friendly environment. We are open all year, but if you are coming in the off-season, you should probably call us or at least check our website/FB page to see if we are open!
