In Short
The imported, Mexican ceramic tiles that colorfully line the floor at this friendly no-frills eatery have been in place for decades, as have many of the kitchen staff in back. Get in line by the rod iron gate under the… Read Full Editorial

They have amazing staff by Denise T via Insider Pages on 8/15/2016

This is my steady place to go if I am hungry for some Mexican food. They have amazing staff in here and they always make sure that their customers are pleased.

My Review by robertl1972643349 via Citysearch on 3/18/2015

Do you NEED tacos? Because this is where we can get a lot of variations and amazing tasting tacos! They certainly have that amazing Mexican flavors to the tee!

My Review by lilliant564548143 via Citysearch on 2/1/2015

I could go here every week and still get surprised by the food. They have fresh tasting food and they never seize to amaze the gastronomical analyst out of me.

My Review by maryz1356480936 via Citysearch on 1/4/2015

I would love to go back and take each one that I know who enjoys a incredible Mexican meal. I like it in here, warm and warm and the services are not that shabby, definitely one of the better place to have a Mexican meal.

used to be better by ricardo g. via Judy's Book on 11/3/2014

i've been coming here along time. quality of the food used to be better. their prices have increased quite a bit too. their guacamole and chips are good and i will continue going there for them. other than that, i will probably eat…

I expected better.... by Christian Smith via Citysearch on 12/18/2011

El Indio catered our wedding. There were a series of problems with their management and communication. This email was sent to El Indio dated 11/17/11. As of this date these issues with their catering have not been resolved. If you are…

hospital cafeteria food by osageo via Citysearch on 2/19/2011

if you like hospital cafeteria food you'll love this place.\r \r I've eaten many versions of "mexican" food and although not a professional critic, i know what good mexican food is. I ordered the carnitas plate and recieved about 2…

Mediocre food that tourists will like by ellizona via Citysearch on 5/31/2010

Having grown up in S. Cal in the 60's/70's, I have come to understand that over the years, both Calif and Arizona have "dumbed down" good Mexican food for tourists and residents who have relocated here. Sonoran style is generally the most…

delicious! by Matt M via Insider Pages on 4/22/2010

super tasty mexican food at reasonable prices. my only complaint is that parking can be a pain sometimes. love their food though.

catered Mexican by Julia D via Insider Pages on 2/17/2010

I grew up on El Indio mixed burritos, and the only thing I wanted for my birthday party was for El Indio to cater it. They are so helpful with the menu planning, and the mini burritos are a hit with everyone who eats them!!!! They also…

El Indio Mexican Restaurant is Quick, Easy and Delicious by Jenna H via Insider Pages on 6/18/2009

Wonderful Mexican food at very affordable prices! You can build a meal of exactly what sounds good to you..pick and choose to make it just right! The people there are very nice and the service is very quick! Great shredded beef…

Tasteless plain Mexican food by Louli via Citysearch on 5/3/2009

I don't know why this place has such a good reputation yet the food is left without much taste. The staff is not attentive and rushes you through the line...but most of all, the food is awful. It was a big disappointment to me and my…

Authentic Mexican Food by Ellen R via Insider Pages on 4/25/2009

I have had El Indio cater many of my home parties. I also had El Indio for my graduate school graduation party. They give so much food. The food is always fresh and very delicious and very reasonable for what you get. I love ordering the…

San Diego Favorite by Elizabeth G via Insider Pages on 4/10/2009

El Indio is one of San Diego's original Mexican Restaurants and you wouldn't be considered a true local without visiting it....great food and very authentic!

Awesome by Geoff C via Insider Pages on 1/16/2009

I ate at there restaurant and was quite surprised at how good it was. The restaurant is family owned and you can tell by the food they produce. They have their own tortilla making machine as well.

great service by Jennifer G via Insider Pages on 10/23/2008

If you love mexican food this is the place to be. I heard nothing but great things from everyone. This family company is wonderful. They truly care about the food they make and serve.

The Place To Go by Neal R via Insider Pages on 10/6/2008

El Indio Shop is a landmark. Whenever I am in the area I have to go.They have everything, and make all of their own food. It is all excellent, especially the fresh tortillas.I recently did a fundraiser event, and they supplied all of the…

An old favorite by Jennifer T via Insider Pages on 9/11/2008

I love this restaurant. We've been going here for years. The food is always consistently good. It's always busy which is a good sign. A bit out of the way, but well worth it. Nice atmosphere too.

Mmmm Mmmm mexican by janaschreiber8 via Citysearch on 7/10/2008

My boyfriend and his family have been going here for years and he finally took me this past weekend to this very busy, very tasty mexican joint. The line was long but worth the wait for our beef tacos, bean burrito, fresh beef tamales and…

very disappointed by jsac via Citysearch on 6/17/2008

Like the other reviewer, saw it on foodtv and drive with my wife that same day for a little taste. Luckily the line wasnt too bad. We ordered beef tacos, tamales, and rolled tacos and all were a big let down. It may have been one of the…
