Reviews for El Tejate Restaurant

Always come here with my in-laws, we love the place. They have great people running the restaurant and the food is delicious.Only thing that stops me from rating a full 5 stars is the long wait. This is in part from being understaffed, I'd give it a 4.5 honestly, you can see they truly care about the quality of their food, I can compare it to food made by mom. Great place to get authentic food from Oaxaca. Really hits home.

El Tejate was an amazing experience and some of the most delicious food! My wife has celiac disease (no gluten - no wheat/rye/barley/oats) but she was able to eat 95% of the food offered here! We live in Lake Elsinore but we definitely plan to come back for more food and the great/friendly service!!Would love if you're eventually able to expand out towards us ?

Authentic flavor from the homemade tortilla chips and salsa served after ordering, to the nopales and chile relleno washed down with homemade horchada. English is spoken by the host and waitress, everyone else speaks Spanish, at this family restaurant!
