LOVED IT... – At first it seemed like a hole in a wall, but I will definitely go back every time I
awesome mexican food – I am moved here recently and was having a hard time finding quality real Mexican food . Being from San Diego
i have eaten at allot of different Mexican restaurants. El Tejado is good authentic mexican food made by people that care about you and the food they serve you. I would highly recommend giving El Tejado a try..
Not Horrible – So, went to El Tejado for the second time last night. Wasn't too impressed the first time, but I thought I'd give it a second try.
Not a big fan of the salsa, kind of has the consistency and look of plain ketchup with a LOT of cilantro and the chips weren't fresh and warm.
The entire dinner wasn't too bad except the rice was extremely salty.
Oh and the hostess wasn't the friendliest person either, kind of rude.
Probably won't go back.
our first visit to el tejado, and we wont be back! better chili rellenos have been found in fast food joints, the service was lacking, our food was brought out wrong. the waitress kept asking how our food was as she ran by our table, you could compare the amount of gravy on our plates to a mississippi flood. there was a quanity of food to be eaten, if you could stand the lack of QUALITY, so it was a bad experience which we wont repeat. When asked how things were as we were leaving, our answer of "we didnt care for your food" was met with a sheepish smile. Our $30 meal for two could have been spent somewhere much more palatable. Buyer Beware!
You have to keep in mind that you pay for what you get...but considering the size of the portions, your getting your money's worth. I've had many a Chili Rellano and I think El Tejado has the best around...their Mexican burger isn't shabby either. The service is aways good and they are very considerate of your needs. They are a family restaurant and very preceptive to the needs of children. No they are not fancy, but they try hard and I've never had a bad experience there.
Very sad & dissapointed – I've been eating here for over 8 years and I've finally had it! I've put up with terrible service because of the good food. BUT I sent back a chili relleno today that was as tuff as rubber & asked for it to be taken off the bill since I didn't have time to wait for a new one. You would think I asked for the moon! It took longer to have it taken off the bill than to have a new one! When I paid the hostess she asked "how was it"? I told her! She looked away & didn't care... this is what puts businesses out of business! I did not tip either because she never came back after serving us and took my plate to show someone the relleno.
I'll never be back!
Pretty good Mexican for the price – We ordered the chimichangas and the pork fajitas and they were pretty darn good for $10 and under. The salsa was very good too. The guac was just so-so. We will definitely return. The service was fast and friendly.
I'm so confused...but I can't stop!!!! – Every time I have had a margarita here, it ends up tasting like feet. Bad feet. I also got shrimp fajitas once, and the shrimp were teeny tiny, pricey and not very good. Not good at all. I?ve know lots and lots of people who have been very very sick after eating here. Like coming out of both ends sick. Including me. But! It still doesn?t stop me!!! I stick with water, order the chicken and stray away from the specials (aka ?this food has been around so long we better get rid of it?). I wouldn?t say it?s the worst or best, but I?ve had good times there. If you have a sense of humor about bad decor and you are tolerant of inconsistent service, your experiences will be great!
THE Best Mexican Food in Denver – This restaurant features Mexican food, and by that I mean REAL Mexican food. The portions are ample, the produce is fresh and the prices are more than reasonable. The building itself is cozy and the booths offer a real privacy. The Mariachis are SO much fun and the bartenders know how to make a margarita. If it weren't for the completely inattentive waitresses, I would have no qualms giving this place five stars.
More Effective Than Ipecac – My boyfriend is very picky about Mexican food and we've yet to find a restaurant that's totally authentic. So, after some time reading reviews and researching online, we decided to try El Tejado. BIG mistake.
While the service was friendly but very slow, the food was absolutely terrible. He immediately vetoed future visits. Less than half-way through my entree, I got heartburn. The prices were a lot higher than expected. We paid, tipped well, and got in the car to leave. We made it less than five blocks before I asked my boyfriend to pull over and promptly proceeded to expel everything I ate in projectile manner in an alley. I felt like I was Linda Blair, except my head didn't spin around. I've never responded so explosively to something like that - not even too much liquor, which, by the way, I didn't have. I STRONGLY recommend staying AWAY from this place - unless you enjoy throwing up in alleys.
