Always solid food. Friendly Staff. Take away is good. Patio is nice. Enchiladas are great. Fresh ingredients.
My favorite mole EVER! I am a Chicagoan, but retired to North Carolina. So every time we visit our hometown, here we go My faves here are the enchiladas and the grilled Salmon.

Then, the chicken... 更多

El Cid serves a consistently high-quality meal with friendly staff in a family-friendly environment. When weather permits, it's one of the best back patios in the city. Great drinks, great food (definitely try... 更多
