The chicken fajitas were awesome and the chips and queso dip were super good as well. Margaritas are fresh and very well made. Such a fun vibe.

Check this place out if only for the vibe and the decorations and then stay for a Margarita and some delicious food. The main dining area 'outside', under a carp like structure, is fabulous. A train might pass while you're digging into your burrito. When...More

I've been going to this locally owned spot for years. There are so many reasons for going back- the food, atmosphere, staff and of course, the margaritas. If you haven't been, treat yourself and friends to a fun place that isn't pricey, yet worth every...More

We chose El Mundo because we wanted to eat outside and they have a wonderful patio area. The service was fantastic and the drinks were great. My recommendation is to immediately request bottles of the fantastic house made hot sauces and be prepared to douse...More

Love this authentic Mexican place. We stop every time we are in Louisville. The fish tacos are a favorite of my husbands. I like the burrito. My son got a chicken quesadilla and it was filling with all the meat. The salsa was a mild...More

Don't be fooled by the small and unassuming space - this is one great restaurant with enormous variety. I've had nachos to goat meat burritos on their funky indoor tables or curbside tables and never been disappointed.

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...More
