We had terrible service! Our waiter took ab 15 minutes to even come to our table. Another waiter came by to get us some water and bread. I asked for a glass of wine with my meal. The other waiter came and took over. Had to ask again for the wine, then he brought it halfway through the meal. Spoke with the manager and he said our waiter wasn’t feeling well. You get that, but no reason for such poor service!

I was highly disappointed. I made reservations for 1, however I was directed to the bar. Once there the service was slow at best. I had to order the 16 ounce Ribeye medium and what I got was something medium well to well done. If I go back the next time I will demand to sit in the restaurant. And I know to ask for the meat to be cooked either rare or medium-rare so that I get it the way I would like.

As usual a great experience, great place for a date or casual dinning, service is outstanding. Only bad and this is just being picky is that bread severed could be a little bigger and fresher. but overall it did the job.

There were 7 of us to celebrate my birthday. Wagon wheel appetizers were very good. Some enjoyed Polly girl beer, some enjoyed margaritas. Open faced prime rib sandwiches were delicious. Some had fish & chips (those people said the fish & chips at the black Angus on mission gorge is better). Our table was roomy, comfortable & quiet, service excellent.

The food is always good. Salad is served on a cold plate with a cold fork. Service isn't always up to par. This time our meal arrived shortly after we started our salad. No side plates for bread until we asked. Some waiter training may be in order.

The service was slow, almost like our server forgot about us. Our food wasn’t even hot. I was celebrating my promotion at work but nothing about the dinner made it feel like I was celebrating. I won’t be coming back.

Food as usual was good! Waitress so so, waiting over 45 minutes for entree unacceptable! Thought I'd give them a second chance after my experience in March, still no improvement! Restaurant was less than 50% occupied, more empty tables than occupied, no reason for slow food prep!!

Overall, our group of seven men enjoyed the dining experience at Black Angus in El Cajon. Our servers Heather in the bar and Kat serving us in the restaurant were outstanding. Food was good. It was a really good night out for us and we would recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and family.

The food, host and hostess were excellent. Our ribeye was cooked exactly as requested. The drinks very good and the Big mountain chocolate cake rich and delightful. We had the Campfire feast.
I would highly recommend El Cajon Black Angus.

I used to really enjoy it here, then they started cutting back food choices and services they used to offer.
No more wifi! Thats a personal one for me in the autumn when you like to hang out in the lounge for football, plus communicate with your friends without using your data up!
no more filet mignon special sandwich for lunch, no more sweet potato fries.
I will still meet friends here for lunch on occasion but nearly as often

Made a reservation for 7 pm Saturday, arrived at 6:45 waited for nearly one hour and never got seated. We knew the restaurant was busy and that we had arrived a bit early but we sat patiently while others were seated over and over again. I assumed they had reservations before us but finally my husband had been patient all he could and wanted to leave. When I asked the hostess what the problem was she said she forgot about us notifying her we were there and didn't have us on the seating list but offered to seat us next. This was the second time we tried to have dinner there with similar results. We have eaten at other Black Angus restaurants and enjoyed them I don't know what the problem is here but don't think we will try again.

Very small portions, salmon very dry, and green beans were tough. Broccoli not trimmed, with a long stem. These ideas could be improved.
