Freshness is throughout El Pinto. El Pinto uses chile from Hatch, NM, pasture raised pork from Kyzer Farms, and local grass fed beef.

    The background music was a bit loud and annoying in the dining room. Tone it down a bit. We have been here before and tell our friends to go! We enjoyed ourselves. Collin was a very good server. We bought the salsa. Wish the display was in one spot for comparison.! We will be back. Brad & Sue Wabeno, Wisconsin

    Incredibly disappointed in the quality of food given the history and reputation. The signature ribs, while very tender were dry as a bone. I have never seen such a flat, greasy chili relleno. Ribeye steak was tough and greasy and a simple baked potato was only a little hard and underdone. Service was fine, not exceptional.

    We went there for Sunday Brunch. The food we ordered on the brunch menu was delicious. The server was excellent. The patio where we sat was beautiful. Everything was just right. Prices were fair.
