Food is okay but not great. People are wonderful, though. I can see going back just for the people.

Really liked their quesadillas and the jalapeño ranch dip is great.

Mexican food lovers! Check out El Cielo Mexican Grill in Hoover, AL The complimentary chips come with a spicy ranch sauce and salsa and it's so good. Their queso is the bomb and the food is just as bomb I had the nachos and they were a hit #mexicanfood #mexicanrestaurant #mexican #tacotuesday #tacosarelife #nachoslover

This place is always clean and the food is great. Try the Mercedes. It will ring all of your bells. It has steak, chicken, shrimp and Mexican sausage. It's not spicy. And the margaritas are ok.

It was very delicious and we had a great time. They messed our order but it ended up being plenty of food regardless. Their jalapeño dip is really delicious and their drinks are pretty tasty too. It was a great choice. Make sure you get there early though, we walked in at 5:05 and by 5:30 the place was packed out with a line out the door. We will totally go again next time we are in town.

Having salsa and a unique cheese dip as a free appetizer was was awesome. I ordered a pick 3 One crunchy taco that was a soft taco, enchilada that was excellent, and tamale The meat to mesa was great for a tamale. The problem was was in the tamale, Taco & enchilada was very bland

We finished our chips and salsa, before off order was taken. Needless to say it took almost 20 minutes to have our order taken, there was one other fellow eating by himself in the restaurant and 3 servers working. They weren't busy.Food: 2/5

The bottom line is the food is legit! Came here because of the reviews on Google and will be back because it was delicious! The service we received was awesome!

I ate there for lunch today and really enjoyed the food. I also grabbed a chipotle shrimp to-go, and it is one of the best sauces I've had. I will be back frequently!

Salsa had heat but no flavor was hoping for more. Bowl had great flavor was just let down by salsa

I am not sure when El Cielo replace the Mexican restaurant that was at this exact spot, but I was definitely intrigued when I saw this new replacement! Plenty of outside seatings and a cute interior. When we went for lunch, I only saw two employees in the dining area but they were efficient and friendly. While we peruse the menu they brought us salsa and jalapeno ranch. While I was excited to see the additional dip, I'm sad to admit that I did not like it. The jalapeno ranch dip was not really spicy but it was pretty sour. I tried it several times just to make sure I give it a fair shake, but it just did not work for me. I much prefer the jalapeno ranch at Chuy's. However the salsa was very good! They should serve it in bigger bowls so they don't have to keep on running over for refills! We order the stuffed burrito and the lunch combo number one. They were both tasty! My chili relleno unfortunately arrived cold. I'm guessing it was previously frozen and just not heated up thoroughly? I could still tell the flavor was good, but I only took one bite due to the temperature. I packed it up so I could reheat it at home as I did not want to send it back to the kitchen. Overall I thought the restaurant was good and we would definitely be back occasionally for quick lunches!!

I just wanted a chicken quesadilla and now I have the worst food poisoning. I shouldnt have trusted the reviews. My friend got beef and is fine though so maybe just don't get the chicken?
