El Mercado is a typical run of the mill Mexican Restaurant. The margaritas a are solid and their beer selection has all the standard Mexican beers. For an appetizer we tried the jalapenos stuffed with bacon wrapped shrimp, and they were amazing, a nice kick from the pepper mixing with perfectly boiled shrimp and thick juicy bacon. As an extra bonus it was served with a garlic sour cream dip, which was a little runny (think ranch dressing texture), but tasted incredible, it honestly tasted just like sour cream with a kick. We each tried a different dinner special that had a little bit of everything. The plates came out over flowing, in fact after dinner we ended up with lunch and dinner the next day from the left overs. The food was solid, not the best you've ever had, but good. The main feature here is that you get a LOT of quality food for very little money, for example, 2 people, 1 margarita, 1 Mexican beer, an appetizer and 2 dinners the bill was only $30.
Pros: Good service, lots of food for little $$$
Cons: Parking lot is way too small
