Stopped in for cocktails on our first evening ever in Frostburg. Was greeted at the bar by Dan, an apparent regular and connoisseur of the finer draft beers El Canelo has on tap during happy hour.

El Canelo just recently opened up in a new location. They had been closed for well over a month. There was no real indication that they were opened up again. Upon learning that they were open, my wife and I decided to use a $50 gift certificate for some takeout. The certificate had expired by one day (it was good... 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!!

I am no connoisseur of Mexican food. I eat it occasionally and have been to Mexico several times. El Canelo was what I expected in a small PA town. It was clean, the server was very friendly, the food came out quickly and as ordered. I was not disappointed with anything and the vegetarian options were well rounded. Won't be... More

Gluten free and vegetarian friendly menu. Fast and friendly service and prices were reasonable. All corn tortillas and refried pinto beans were good and so was the chicken burrito.

We went to this place for dinner, on a tip form a local friend. It was not crowded, and the food was excellent, and massive in portion. Bar drinks and beer available.
