The most overpriced Mexican food ever.
A friend and I decided to go out for some margaritas and Mexican for my birthday last night--and were pretty disappointed. The food was good, but they charged us for EVERY LITTLE THING we ordered. We ordered guacamole and they charged us for the chips! Were we supposed to eat them with our fingers?
Also, I am a mom to two small children. I have maybe one drink a week and that is all I need. It was my birthday and I wanted to get a little buzzed. I had four margaritas and didn't feel anything. FOUR margaritas. The bill for two people with buy 1 get one margaritas ended up being $70. And not even a happy birthday drink or dessert. I will never go back.
The breakfasts at El Tepehuan are fantastic! Fresh, hot, spicy (if you want), and big portions for small money. This place is always hopping - a great sign for any restaurant.
I took off one star (would rather just take off half a star but wasn't able to) for their margaritas. They're too sweet and syrupy. But stick to beer and anything off the menu and you're in for a treat!
I'm not sure why the previous reviewer said it is smokey - I haven't ever noticed smoke in this restaurant. The food is amazingly good and atmosphere is great for breakfast, lunch or casual dinner.
a true original.
Don't let the fact that this place is smoky, noisy, and many of the patrons sport tatoos deter you. They serve a tangy, hot green chile, and great burritos all cooked up right across the counter. We've eaten here on and off for years, and it never changes.
