I unfortunately can't recommend this food as I got sick after I ate it. I had the veggie burrito and the regular nachos and a few hours later was vomiting on and off for the remainder of the night. I can say the veggie burrito and salsa tasted good. The chips seem to be from a bag and not authentic Mexican style chips. I could have made better nachos at home.
I've known this place for many years, and I gotta say that the only logic explanation to my recent experience (today) is that it must be under new ownership or management. Usually, you couldn't go wrong with a Torta de Asada or Al Pastor Super Burrito (our favorites) but today it was a total disappointment.My wife ordered a torta and it was flavorless and the asada steak was very chewy, I ordered my usual al pastor burrito and the pork had more fat than actual meat, the marinade also had very little flavor. Bottom line is that the cooks or owners need to get back on track and continue doing what they used to, other wise I'm sure they will be losing a lot of loyal customers.
New owners??? We have been regulars at this place for ever, place an order over the phone, had to repeat my order twice just to go home to a wrong order! We call and were told to bring the food and they would fix it for us. After waiting for another 20 minutes hoping to get our order right, went home to a wrong order again! I called asking to speak to the manager, and was told manager was not available, and after explaining the situation, I was told that there was not guarantee I would get the right order and if I wanted the right food to drive there again. I passed "the offer" just because I didn't not want to waste my time just to get the wrong food again. I wasted almost 2 hours trying to get my family a decent dinner which was ruined by the horrible customer service this place has. El Farolito has lost a long time customer.
