    I ordered chile relleno - eliminated the extra cheese on top...it was already stuffed with cheese. The sauce over the chile relleno was quite nice with chopped celery and a light tomato sauce. My friends had the lettuce taco with carnitas. 3 romaine lettuce leaves filled with roasted carnitas which she said was delicious. Service was much improved since my previous visit.

    We were there on cinco de Mayo so the restaurant was filled with guests and bustling with activity including a Mexican DJ which gave our visit an added noise level that made conversation a challenge. My steak fajitas seemed a bit bland and not flavored with the typical spices most restaurants use but others in our group seemed to enjoy their food. Oh almost forgot...chips & salsa are made at the restaurant and are delicious!!! Really top notch!! The service was a bit slow probably because of the number of guests but our server also lacked the friendliness we usually encounter. Not sure if she was nervous or what but she literally didn’t smile once during our 2 hr dinner. The owner and his wife (on the other hand) were very friendly and engaging and working hard to make the restaurant a success!! For this reason we would happily return.

    I decided to try El Rey because it was brand new. Food was exceptionally good; however service could use some training. It was late lunch weekday and only 3 occupied tables with mine included. Food and drink came relatively quick, but I had to ask for the bill and I noticed one other table also had to request. There were no requests for desserts or another round of drinks asked. I really think management could use some table service sessions to promote business.
