We visited the new location in the highlands for the first time tonight. Everything was great. The service, the atmosphere, the food, and the drinks. I love that they have spicy vegan queso and vegan chorizo on the menu!!

I liked the look of the place. My husband and I havent had Mexican food in over 2 years so it was nice to come here to eat it again.

Eat local... El Mundo is a great Mexican restaurant with great variety and tasty food. Tequila flights and a full bar give you several options. Dippity Do ... appetizer dip sampler is great way to start a meal. Service was great.

This was actually a really upsetting meal. About an hour and a half ago, I made the on-line order. Husband went to pickup. No order (even though the money was already out of his account). So he stood in the hot sun for 30-40 minutes...waiting. Order finally arrived. He brought it all home. I was halfway through my burrito (not great, greasy and not wrapped well enough to pick up) when I found a string in it. Can’t figure out what it’s from, but it’s not okay! Things are hard these days with viruses and protests, and general craziness, but basics, like burritos (on a very small menu, due to COVID-19) things should be done really well. And in an extraordinary clean environment. We’ve tried to go to at least one local spot a week for takeout since all of this started in mid March (because we want local places to survive). But, this is, by far, the worst meal we’ve had. Sadly it was hand in hand with poor service. I’m not mad, just really, really disappointed.More

So when my Young son was wanting Mexican food we visited El mundo’s and he loved it and so we even put one of your stickers on our car for many years. So when he would turned 21 years old today he chose your restaurant....Your bartender was very rude in fact he would not even let us order at the bar a drink for him. He kept insisting despite me telling him what I wanted is for my son to order his first drink at your bar. Very very disappointing very very rude bartender What a disappointment Food was averageMore

What happened to the top shelves? Why mess with success? Looked like they arent hand made anymore? They dont taste the same, and definitely not as consistent or fresh.

This is my second time trying El Mundo...some of my past co-workers and I do Adult Beverage Night, ABN for short...and on the nights we really enjoy ourselves we can rack up a nice bill and great tips for our servers...tonight was not one of...those nights. Lets start with the patio... I have 4 in my party but NO ONE can be seated, not even half the party, until the ENTIRE party is there. I get it, its small...thats my next point...but dang theres no where to stand if youre not getting a table. They say go to the bar - well there are only 4 stools and guess what, those are taken with people eating and waiting for tables - although 5 tables are completely empty. So 2 of us end up standing at the base of the stairs that the servers use to bring the food down...probably not a good idea. Oh yes, there are chairs out on the street too...also taken. Youd almost think the food was amazing...Ill get to that. Its a small patio. We were able to get under the fully covered section - tin roof - and not under the umbrella section - it was supposed to rain after all. While Im on the subject of small...the last time we were there - there was a party of 5 and we were CRAMMED into a booth upstairs. So not a place for anyone with a little meat on their bones...you feel like you keep bumping into people. Food is OK. I LOVE Mexican Food...I could eat it every day, but not if it comes from here. Is it more authentic? Not really... Is it more generic? Not really... I literally cant put my finger on it and Ive tried. Tonight my selection was shrimp with corn fritters and chipolte aioli .. shrimp with sounds like Im getting shrimp AND some corn fritters...not shimp IN some corn fritters. They were pretty good...hot, soft, but crispy and there was shrimp inside, but I think the taste was depending a lot on that aioli and it was too spicy for me. Im sure well go back...my friend loves their mojito and the classic margarita. Tonight I had a frozen strawberry margarita with sugared rim. It was ok. Oh one more thing...after the meal, we are sitting there chatting and the hostess comes to the table, says nothing, reached across my friend to get ONE of the 6 empty glasses on the table. Just one...without saying a word to him. REALLY? Are they running out in the kitchen? Then I think you ought to take them all...but no... Our actual server was friendly and patient and helpful, but I dont remember her saying her name. I left a healthy tip cause she did the best she could with what she had.More
