We have been going to El Cerro Grande for years and never disappointed. Heard they are getting a new restaurant closer to Inlet Square Mall so will be moving at some point. Their food is outstanding. We love it. Prefer eating indoors, but if there...More

Chicken tacos were excellent, made with fresh tortillas & spicy chicken. Chips & salsa good as well, friendly waiters, & quick service. We also ordered enchiladas, burrito & quesadilla which were tasty. Authentic Mexican restaurant.

Been here several times and have even ordered take out. The food is very good. I especially like the spicy shrimp dinner, but the typical burritos and enchilada are good as well. Service is Ok and the little bar is popular.

We've been to El Cerro this summer,and really liked this place, Despite it was busy, we got everything on time, it's not like regular Mexican restaurant, one can find a variety of different dishes the others don't have. Come back for sure

My husband and I were regulars (local) at this restaurant for the last several years. We knew the staff by name. On a busy dinner night, rather that get on their wait list, we chose to wait at the bar, and order from there. We...More

The service here remains spotty, but the restaurant seems to be sipping in other ways. The new menu has higher prices, and the plates have smaller portions -- so much so that the lunch specials are on the skimpy side. Another change is that the...More

Try the shrimp cocktail (not on the menu). A large one is more than enough for a meal. It is made fresh and is one of the best dishes I have had in my life!
