Nice, authentic Mexican food

After a recent trip to Mexico I’ve become a big fan of small, authentic tacos (not the Taco Bell kind), and I was happy to find them here at El Cid.

The service is pretty friendly and attentive, but they took their time getting us the check. Probably because they thought we’d order another pitcher of margarita. =)

I’d definitely come back again for some good Mexican food.

Light on taste, and dry. Had to add a lot of salsa.

My favorite taco of the night – juicy meat with grilled onions. It went great with the salsas too.

i love fish tacos! they do it right here w/real fresh fish jam-packed in corn tortillas. a bit on the dry side, but nothing that a little salsa couldn’t fix.

Great margaritas will keep you coming back

Let's be honest, here. El Cid's food isn't fantastic, but it satisfies. Honestly, I usually like the food at nearby Cafe Con Leche better, but the margaritas are so delicious I will never turn down a trip to El Cid. The people who work…

Good Mexican food

El Cid has pretty good mexican food. Basically anything you get here will be at least decent--it's not fancy but it is a sit down place. Great salsa. Flautas are also good.
