“Authentic Mexican food at Dempsey. The staff was helpful and friendly, one even offered to keep our fresh produce in the restaurant’s fridge while we had our dinner. We had pork ribs, nachos and fajitas. The serving was big and could have easily shared one dish for two. All was tasty and delicious. I also had a Mexican bulldog which was just okay – it can use more tequila and presentation can be better. We were seated at the bar which we thought would be uncomfortable but it turned out fun to watch them mixing cocktails.”

I love their food here, especially their burritos! Mexican food i had at OTHER places are mostly too sour or cheesy for my liking. However, the tacos, burritos and quesadillas served at El Cocinero have well balanced cheesy, savory, sweet and sour flavors. Affordable prices. Keep up the good work!
