My family has been eating here for 25 years. We live 90 miles north now and still come here to eat every chance we get. There are plenty of Mexican Food options where we live and none of them holds a candle to El Alamo!...More

We got there about 6 PM and were seated shortly after we arrived. The service was very slow. Parties arrived after we were seated waited 20 minutes or more. At least two parties walked away. An hour later our food arrived right before we had...More

We did fajitas on our road trip. Food was teriffic. We were the first people in on a Sunday. Is a very Latino part of town. Never got crowded. Service was excellent. Hot sauce was kinda mild, but their regular salsa was pretty warm anyway...More

Service was courteous, but slow. Thought the authentic Mexican food was a little bland for our tastes. Best part was the unique Mexican pottery store that is next door.

My family and I have been coming here since the early 1990s and it is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Omaha. As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a friendly, neighborhood restaurant with great owners and staff. Yes, the decor is a little worn around...More

My family and I decided to try this place because of some of the reviews we read and what a mistake. I have to admit that the food and chips & salsa were pretty good but they were the only good things about this place....More
