I live in the area and eat at El Canelo's a lot. I have never had a bad meal. I have never left hungry. The wait staff are always happy to help me pick things out, I never run out of drinks or salsa. They...More

We wanted to stop at "A Place To Eat", but they were closed, so we walked on and decided to eat at El Canelo. We were extremely hungry since we'd been biking and walking all day, so we weren't terribly picky; however, I think their...More

We stopped for a Sunday dinner with adults and children. The waitress was very accommodating and explained the selections well. Food was fresh and more than we could eat, leftovers went home.

Went to El Canelo for lunch. The fajitas were good. The service was quick. The chips and salsa were ok - neither the best nor worst I have had.

Love this place. Every dish is perfect. The salsa & chips are just the beginning of a wonderful dining experience. Don't forget your doggy bag, always something left to take home. A place we go out of our way to eat!! Enjoy, OLAY!!
