We were at the jeep dealership for some service, and went here after. It’s way bigger than it looks on the outside, and it was really good. In Decatur we have a lot of quality Mexican to choose from and this was on par with...More

We stayed at the motel right beside El mazatlan, so it was a very easy walk to go for dinner. The food and service was fabulous, I'd visit again if they were local to me.

We dined at this restaurant with a large family group including 2 children under the age of 5. The staff was great catering to our needs and taking care of the children's needs. The food is excellent as is the service.

We ordered take out and it was amazing! The order was complete and correct. I had the chimichanga and it was amazing! We will definitely be going back to try out more of their menu.

Great little place to eat. The food is well prepared. You need to tell them if you want it hotter. The drinks were fine. The margarita's could have been a little more authentic. All in all a fine meal for the cost.

We love El Maz. Great atmosphere and good food. We do love how clean the place is and how much martine puts into it. They are very giving to the community which is also amazing and keeps me coming back.

Best Mexican restaurant in Lincoln. Always a positive experience. All time favorite Camarones Jalisco, bacon wrapped shrimp with decadent cheese sauce, onions and peppers . Friendly fast service. Good selection of cerveza’s and margaritas. Nice decor and patio area.

We love going here for most Mexican meals. Their burritos and fajitas are good, and their salsa is really good. Mild to medium. They have some interesting meals on their menu, such as pina fajitas, which are mild and contain pineapple. Their mixed drinks are...More

I ate dinner with a friend who is gluten free. Though it was my first experience there, she'd eaten there several times. I know she can have VERY SMALL amounts of gluten without getting sick, so I cannot say her meal was... More
