Worst Food I've ever had! 4/15/2012

This had to be the worst food I've ever eaten. I eat mexican at least once a week and sometimes even 3 or 4 times a week. My ""Fajita Chimichanga"" was awful! There wasn't a ""fajita"" aspect to it and it tasted like they bought it out of the freezer section at Walmart and cooked it in the microwave. I literally ate 2 bites. more

Horrible experence 3/12/2012

First thing thru the door and a sour stench hit us in the face. Not sure what it was but it didnt get any better in the bathroom either. The mens bathroom smelled like a nasty nursing home. The urine smell was horrible. My 12 year old daughter said that the womens wasnt any better. The waitress was nice and helpful at least. When our food arrived it was the worst Mexican we have ever had. I got the lunch fajitas and they were $9.95 and there was barely anything there for the money. My wife got the taco dinner w/rice and refried beans. The taco shells were burnt. The rice and beans tasted soured. We have both eat at El Chico since we were children. This was the worst experence we have had. We eat at the El Chicos on Murfreesboro Road in Nashville all the time and have never had an issue. Go to the one on Murfreesboro Road instead and skip the one in Goodletsville!! more

El Chico is just O.K. 5/7/2011

It was Cinco de Mayo so is was busy. The service was O.K., not great. The food was also O.K., tasty, plentiful. The tortilla chip were kind of greasy and the salsa was really not good. The margaritas were weak at best. I probably would not go back since there are so many good Mexican restaurants in the general area. more

El Cheapo's is what it should be called! 1/24/2007

This has got to be the worst place I have eaten out in, in all of Nashville. McDonalds would have been better! The drinks were supossed to be 2 for 1 on the Margarita's, but the waitress failed to tell us that, so we ordered high priced drinks that tasted slightly better than fruit juice, NO alcohol in them. Then when we did order the margarita's, she told us they were $4.09 for 2, the bill came, they were $5.29, she said I forgot to tell you there was an extra charge for a flavored one, are you kidding me? The food was warm at best, small quantities, had to keep asking for everything, the waitress was like having a 5 year old serve you. El Chico's should be called El Cheapo's..if you want good Mexican food, at a terrific price, try Cinco De Mayo, even the service there was incredible! El Chico's I am sorry to say stinks. I wouldn't eat there if it was the last place on Earth! Pros: The parking lot was roomy! Cons: Everything from the service, to the quantity of food, to the atmosphere! more
