- A neighborhood favoriteGimmieDined on 4/18/2014We enjoy the casual atmosphere, combined with excellent food! There is a friendly, family vibe. The special Seafood Tacos were our reason to go this week. They were outstanding - full of chunks of a variety of fish. My husband enjoyed a trio of enchiladas. The margaritas are good, with several variations available. Service is always attentive, but not intrusive. We dine in or take-out frequently.Special Features:
- Lunch-time SpecialFredVIPDined on 3/18/2014I normally wouldn't do Mexican at lunch, but El Andariego proved to be an excellent choice for a good selection of lunch specials for under $10.00. I had a business meeting with an acquaintance here and the atmosphere was quiet and we were able to conduct business and enjoy our meals. Wait staff was very attentive and we didn't have to waist time waiting for the food or the check. I highly recommend El Andariego as an excellent lunch-time engagement, for a quick business meeting, and with a bite to eat.Special Features:

- Never DisappointedhappyascanbyDined on 10/12/2013Been dining at El Andariego for a couple of years. Never been disappointed. Owners are very attentive to the customers, staff is friendly and efficient. Great selection of dishes that are reasonably priced...my personal favorite is the crab and shrimp enchiladas.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Mexican/Salvadorean foodBillSamuelDined on 6/6/2013This is a neighborhood, family-owned restaurant. It has quite a variety on its menu of Mexican-Salvadorean food. It is carefully prepared, and therefore it will take a little time before it is delivered to your table. The wait is worth it, for the quality of the food reflects careful preparation. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food.Special Features:
- good neighborhood diningakharbsVIPDined on 6/1/2013It's wonderful to go to a restaurant where they really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. This is a lovely restaurant with solid Mexican/Salvadoran offerings. I came for a birthday dinner with family and in the middle of the dinner the power went out because of a storm. They still soldiered on, and even brought me my surprise birthday dessert. The fresh chips that started the meal were delicious, and my seafood soup was tasty and full of lobster, crab, and shrimp. The broth was not as flavorful, but since they were doing everything in the dark, I cut them some slack. A great neighborhood restaurant in Montgomery County.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Surprising find in OlneyOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 5/4/2013My son and I tried El Andariego on a Sunday evening based on location & reviews. It turned out to be a wonderful choice. It was our first time there and we will definitely go back. The price for the specials might be a little high for Ashton (about $20), but there were plenty of other offerings at lower and quite reasonable prices. The margaritas are strong and delightfully limey. The salsa is very good - it has a kick to it, but also a very fresh tomato flavor. I had the salmon special and it was superb. The best thing about the place may have been the attentive service. The manager made a point of checking to see that the diners were satisfied, and the waitresses did not hide out in the kitchen. They were unobtrusive, but very attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Best in the Olney/Ashton areaBrettDined on 2/14/2013This is the best restaurant in the Olney/Ashton area! Go for the Friday night specials and margaritas and don't leave without trying the bread pudding.Special Features:
- Food used to be quite goodLarryVIPDined on 12/30/2012Food used to be quite good now average. Service, especially on Sundays is lackluster, servers are either inexperienced or disinterested, staff seem less engaged. The usually excellent margarita lacked any flavor from tequila and was returned, the server grudingly provided a replacement. The sangria, usually very flavorful with a bit of sparkle was flat; seemed to have more juice or other liquid and less wine than in the past. Will likley look to eat this cuisine elsewhere in the future.
- This is a nice, ethnic, neighborhooLindaDined on 11/17/2012This is a nice, ethnic, neighborhood restaurant. The staff greets diners warmly and the food is always plentiful. It's an unhurried dinner in a pleasant atmosphere.Special Features:
