There is LEGIT Mexican food in Charlottesville! Who knew?!?! I had no idea El Puerto existed - it is tucked in a strip mall that is just off one of the main roads through town.
El Puerto is decorated as an average hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint with vibrant colors and chotchkies all about. The smell when I walked in was inviting and had me immediately curious about the food.
The chips and salsa were tasty...a thinner basic salsa. I ordered the steak fajita quesadilla lunch special which came with rice. I was also able to sample a friend's fajita chicken. All in, the food was delish and as a Californian who has been exposed to plenty of Mexican food, I finally got a good fix! I plan to visit El Puerto again soon!
