This El Chico is pretty much most like other El Chico's. It is sort of like the McDonald's of Tex-Mex. The food is satisfying, the prices are fair. The queso and chips, along with the salsa may not be anything ot write home about but...More

Every thing we ate was good and fresh, the waitress was great. Kept our tea glasses filled before we had to ask. The order came out quickly but still tasted very good.
