Outrageously rude/offensive owner 10/13/2009

Can I give it 0 stars? Read all the other reviews on unsanitary conditions and re-using of food! We had not been to this place for 2 years because it is very overpriced. We decided to give it 1 more chance. We ordered our entre's and when my wife asked me what I wanted to drink, I said I'll just have a glass of water. The owner said he no longer gives out free water because he doesn't want to wash that many glasses (he actually said it!!). I then told my wife I won't get a soda - I would just wait until we left to drink the one I had in the car. The owner then butted in and told me you can't bring drinks in. I said that I would drink it when we left. He then told us that if I woudn't get a water just because I have to pay for it now then we could get out of his restaurant- he didn't want our business. He doesn't have to worry about that!!!! This guy (the disgusting cowboy hat totin' owner) is certifiable. With the enormous volume of bad reviews, he reminds me of Richard Pryor in Brewsters Millions (where Pryor has to deliberately lose all his worldly possessions). This owner appears to be diliberately trying to ruin his business - how can a person not know any better? The place was empty at dinner time - I wonder why? The owner is the definition of a person that should not own business. more

Small place with big flavor 8/16/2005

I would say El Tango is more Cal-Mex than Tex-Mex. The food reminds me more of the Mexican I had in So-Cal - fresh, suprising, varying flavors and textures. Every bite is to be savored. The food is, simply put, outstanding, with plenty of vegetarian options (not just beans and rice). Generous portions and super fresh. Which is why it takes the kitchen so long to get orders out. Everything is made fresh to order. So if you're dining in, bring along a six pack (it's BYOB, but they'll put it in the fridge for you) and order some appetizers. Dishes of note: fish tacos (the best I've had in Cleveland), the salsas and the nachos. The daily special is always good, and something you might not think of trying if it was on the regular menu. The vanilla lemonade is a favorite too. Do yourself a favor and stay for dessert too. A friend and I had a jalepeno apple pie that was delicious! more

  • In Short
    Picture Santa Fe. The owner (sporting a tall white cowboy hat) would sooner not serve guacamole than settle for mediocre avocados. Hungry people have taken note--with good reason...
