Been in the Valley all summer and finally made it to El Segundo last night for dinner. Great menu choices, many options on the tacos. The slaw has a "bite" to it that I loved since I'm from TX and like the kick, but others may not so just FYI. Had the Baja Mahi Burrito, excellent. The Brussel Sprouts and Ceviche we shared as starters and they're both very tasty. One of our group ordered the Chimichanga and didn't care for the refried beans inside, she'd thought they'd be on the side. She had failed to fully read the description and admitted that, but the hostess still took the charge off her bill since she did not enjoy her order. Great attention to pleasing the guests. Look forward to coming back.

The food was wonderful. The tables favorite was the Hot Korean. Our server was very attentive, she came by every few minutes to make sure we did not need anything.

House margaritas were outstanding as was the queso appetizer! We each enjoyed a specialty taco followed by the churros and chocolate ice cream...we will definitely return! The wait staff were helpful and friendly and ready to please.

The wife and I went here for a late supper and were very pleased. The tacos were delicious and had a few margaritas as well that were very tasty. Our server was very friendly as she was local from Colorado and was very helpful with suggestions and friendly to boot. All in all we had a great time and definitely would go back.

The service was great, very friendly. We decided to have nachos and really liked them. Instead of piling them all up, they were spread out in a small baking tray which means there weren’t a lot of dry chips with no topping. I don’t drink cocktails often and decided to try the Champagne Supaloma....excellent!

I'm local to the area and brought my friends here so they could experience Vail village without going somewhere super expensive. I love the margaritas and the food is pretty good, but the server was incredibly rude. I will probably come back, but I will just sit at the bar. I won't bring any friends here again.

I cannot say enough about this restaurant and the entire staff and management. This is not your typical boring taco place. A well thought out menu, with amazing ingredients, and beautifully executed. Every taco we tried was outstanding and the chips and salsa are incredible. We travel a lot and are from a major city that has Michelin rated restaurants and this is probably the best taco restaurant we have

OMG SO GOOD! Where has this place been my whole life? We started with a bubbling hot pan of queso fundido, which was superb and had some delicious crunchy bits of burnt cheese at the bottom. Then had margaritas- which were not only absolutely delicious and refreshing but definitely left us feeling delightfully warm and fuzzy without tasting strong. I had the Chile relleno which was delicious and cooked in a traditional style with rice and a amazing tomato sauce, and my BF had the carne asada burrito which was packed with flavor and melty cheese as well. Highly recommend the friend of the devil marg (bright and spicy). Service was also phenomenal all around. 11/10 will be back

We have come to Vail a few times this summer, and each time we have eaten at El Segudo. The food is well made and inventive, the prices are very affordable, and they have a great patio. I highly recommend this place—enjoy!

It’s hard to understand how a Mexican restaurant can make lousy chips, salsa and guacamole. Worst ever. Tables may have been 6’ apart but was still packed. The Chile rellenos were below average but the ahi tuna tacos were excellent ( but tiny).
Beer was cold!

Listen, we love El Segundo and have been eating tacos and drinkinf margaritas there since they've opened. But the night we went really wasn't as amazing as it had been in the past. Our server was very nice, but not attentive. Also, please don't waste your $20 on the fajitas. Get some tacos, you can't go wrong there.

We were greeted by the extremely pleasant hostess! Our waitress was very friendly. We started with the chorizo fundido and it was very good and flavorful! I started with a skinny spicy margarita that hit the spot! I had two tacos the tuna and the grouper. They were amazing!! The tuna one is very small but filling. The grouper was great. My son had the spicy beef taco. The chicken taco and the jerk shrimp. All were good!! This is more “foodie” Mexican than authentic so if that’s what you are looking for this isn’t the place. We loved it!!
