A locallay-owned and run establishment. Excellent service, fantastic Mexican food. We just ordered and ate a large takeout order, they had no problem taking the order quickly and there were no mistakes (which is an accomplishment with an order this large). The food was excellent, portion sizes were generous with plenty of meat in their meals. The owners are friendly and helpful. The prices are very affordable. They are doing a really great job at El Pulpo!
Absolute love this restaurant! Excellent service and delicious food
Amazing food and great service??
This place is absolutely amazing! I’ve been looking for a Mexican restaurant in comparison to my favorite place in Virginia! I have finally found it! Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for flavorful food, also the cheese dip is to die for!!! ?
A good friend of mine and I visited El Pulpo for the first time last night. The food was excellent and they had a special on beer and margaritas as well. My buddy had the daily special which was salmon and I had the shrimp fajitas..I have lunch for tomorrow...great large portions. We will be back.
This is a wonderful local restaurant with excellent, authentic tasting Mexican food. Their menu is pretty large, and the quality of the food is consistently good no matter what you order. The salsa is very fresh tasting (a step up from Moe's salsas in my opinion) and you don't have to wait long to get your meal. Additionally, the staff are very friendly, and the interior is clean and charming with all of the Mexican-themed decorations. My husband and I first came here in the summertime and have been hooked ever since... El Pulpo has made it into our regular rotation of good local places to eat!!
Great restaurant, the price and right and the taste of the food is awesome.
Very friendly, welcoming atmosphere, food very fresh and delicious!
Nice place to eat a really Mexican food.
We will be back for sure
The best authentic Mexican restaurant in the Binghamton area! Chips and salsa delivered to your table upon sitting. Very short wait times between ordering and delivery. Wait staff is normally prompt and prices are very reasonable.
In my opinion, by far the best and most authentic Mexican restaurant in greater Binghamton. Skip the overpriced mediocre tequila bar on Main St. This is the place for good Mexican food.
Everything I've ever had here has been great, but their seafood is incredible.
The food is so flavorful, and authentically Mexican. Portions are perfect, and there is a huge selection for every price range and every taste. Comfortable decor, very friendly wait staff. We love going to el Pulpo!
Food was delicious!!! I love that this used to be a McDonald's! They did a great job redoing the inside and making it comfortable and pleasant. Best Mexican in the area!
The fajita nachos are to die for !!!! Add pineapple and you are in for the best meal of your life.
Service was friendly and our server shana was outstanding! Food was great and prices were good. Overall wonderful experience, we were a party of 6 adults traveling through New York.
The staff is very friendly. The service is fast. Good size portions and EXCELLENT flavor. Best around by far ! ?
We had a party of 7 for dinner. Service was great, waitress gave fabulous suggestions. Portions were generous and the food was delicious.
The only thing that is disappointing is that we live over 100 miles away and cant come here weekly!!
My husband and I went here on the recommendation of a facebook friend who had posted pictures of his meal which looked wonderful. We were seated immediately and given menus along with a bowl of warm tortilla chips and delicious homemade salsa. Within 2 minutes our waiter came and took our drink orders. We were pleased with the variety of beers offered. Our bottles of Sol beers were delivered quickly with lime wedges stuck into the mouths, together with frosted glasses. Very cold, very good. We ordered chimichangas and burritos deluxe. Both were served within 8 minutes on very hot plates and were absolutely delicious. Generous portions of the accompanying salsa, sour cream and homemade guacamole, together with beans and rice, rounded the meals off perfectly. The dessert menu looked so good, but we were too full to order anything. We may just stop in for churros and fried ice cream next time. Give this place a try!
This pic is from our 1st visit. Loved v the food, drinks, & over all experience. The staff is accomodating. This place is a former McDonald's and has not evolved in decor or ambience, as of yet. It just opened, at this time, so maybe the decorations will evolve.
Awesome food and great service. This is my second visit. Today I had the Los Tres Amigos, three soft tacos served with cabbage, rice, beans, pico de gallo and green sauce. It was delicious! The rice even had great flavor (I know what you're thinking the rice is all the same in Mexican restaurants.... That's what I'm saying this is different. More flavor and had bits of veggies in it. I saw corn,peas and a Lima bean. Just a small amount but I think that is one reason it tasted better). I'll be back.
I came later in the day. I was greeted immediately. Iordered the Beef burrito with rice. Food came out within 15 minutes. We got chips and salsa right after being seated. The food was cooked well and prepared nicely. The theme fits well with it's Dominican roots. Overall grewt experience. Looking forward to it growing.
Very good restaurant. Food was good. Drinks were cold and service was great. Not to mention deserts to die for. Looking for a new place to eat. Try this one you won't be disappointed!!! It's an old McDonald's so don't expect a fancy environment. But doesn't matter. Food was very very good!!!!
Excellent! Big portions for the price ! We ordered the shrimp fajitas , guacamole , jalapeo poppers, burrito Mexicano , and enchiladas ... all were amazing with TONS of flavor . The salsa was delicious . We also ordered flan sooo good! The Place was extremely packed ... definitely give it a try because you won't be disappointed !
Heard good things, went in for lunch special. Got a lot of food for the price, everything was super tasty, service was great. I will be going back often.
Excellent authentic Mexican food. Not Americanized Mexican, but genuine Mexican food.
Tamales had huge pieces of fresh chicken in them. Tacos were crispy and tasty. The shrimp and scallops dish was original and very tasty. Both of us cleared our entire plate and ordered the super sopapilla for dessert.
The chips and salsa are fresh made in-house. Nice selection of beers and Mexican soft drinks as well. The menu is pretty big and worth looking at the different dishes to try. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we plan to visit again and again whenever we hanker for good Mexican food. The staff was also very nice, friendly and quick! So glad we tried El Pulpos
Food was very good. Waitress was very nice. Will definitely go back. I won a pair of their shorts from a drawing they had
Exactly what Mexican food should be! Very delicious and the service was excellent , very fast and friendly ! Highly recommend!!!
Tried this place with some friends last night. The restaurant is an old McDonald's location that I've been to many times during my childhood. It seemed weird walking in and seeing it done up in Mexican themed decor. (They kept the original McDonald's tile floor) They have plenty of booths and tables. The restaurant had a steady flow of people coming and going. It was on the busy side toward the end of our meal.
Now, onto the FOOOOOOOD!
Chips and Salsa were set on the table when we sat down. The chips were warm and the salsa was great. A little spicy with a bunch of cilantro. (One thing to note, they charge $1.98 for a refill of chips and salsa. This is the only Mexican restaurant I've ever been to that charges for refills of these. Not that it's an exorbitant amount, but I was surprised when I saw it on the bill. They were very good though, and totally worth the $2)
My wife ordered Burritos Supreme and I ordered Burrito Mar Tiara. The food came out pretty quickly and looked delicious. My wife's looked like a standard burrito plate with tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, red sauce and two burritos on it. Everything was fresh and she said it was awesome. My burrito was absolutely humongous. It had grilled shrimp, steak, peppers and onions (prepared in the same fashion of fajita vegetables.) It was smothered in a creamy cheese sauce and pico. The steak was tender and the shrimp were cooked to perfection. Did I mention it was humongous? I felt like I was on an episode of Man vs Food.........Man won.
At the end of the meal, I sat in silence and listened to my arteries hardening. The sound of a meal that was thoroughly en
The prices were reasonable and the service was great. I never had to wait for a refill on my drink.
We'll DEFINITELY be back. I'd go back tonight....and tomorrow......
We went back again...I ordered Pollo Enchorizado...grilled chicken with a cheese sauce with chorizo...."Oh my God, Becky!" This may be the only thing I ever order from here again. Everybody was picking off of my plate.... lucky for them, I was in a giving mood...
Delicious authentic Mexican food. Great service and nice happy hour. You should give it a try if you like southwest cuisine. I am definitely making it one of my favorite restaurants.
Fresh produce and great taste. This was my first visit here and I arrived an hr before closing time. I had the Burrito Mar Y Tierra it was fantastic. Veggies cooked to perfection. My only suggestion would to have their daily specials and soups suggested by staff or more visible. I saw them after I ordered and ate. I may have brought a bigger appetite if I saw them sooner. Haha. Great eats Broome County!
Great locally owned restaurant. The food was great. I had chicken fajitas -- very tasty. The owners are very nice and friendly. Prices were very reasonable.
Well we've eaten at every Mexican restaurant in the triple cities and this by far blows them all away. Two dishes were outstanding if you like seafood. Burrito Del Mar and the Super Quesadilla de Camarones. The bar also adds a nice effect. If there is any negative, even though the decor is Mexican, you still feel like you're eating at a Mc Donald's. But as far as that goes, who gives a hoot, the food is awesome!!!
Awesome authentic mexican restaurant..with delicious food. Decent quantity. Quick service. Friendly staff. And not that pricy. We ordered veggie fajitas, guacamole, tacos and flan. Enjoyed everything to the fullest. Their salsa was amazing too.
The look of the old McDonald's truly threw me off but I was pleasantly surprised. The hostess was very friendly and asked for our preference of a table or a booth. The service was fast and efficient. Their margaritas were very good and the salsa was amazing. The food that we both got was perfect. Will for sure go back.
This is the best Mexican Restaurant I've visited! Ordered the octopus burrito and crab chimichanga and it was spectacular. Every single bite was better than the last. The service was spectacular by the owner Bernardo who is very friendly and proud of his business. The restaurant will soon be offering conch on their menu. Looking forward to the authentic dish. Good luck to Bernardo and his family with their restaurant.
Outstanding food at reasonable prices. Don't let the decor fool you. This is a really good casual Mexican restaurant.
Great prices and delicious food! Would highly recommend upgrading your meat choice to carnitas (pork)...it's out of this world!
Stellar food. Great staff. The outside is a little unattractive but the interior- like the food and the people, is bright and fun. Fresh flavors, friendly staff. Have had numerous lunches and now some great dinners there, and not been disappointed once. Try it!
It is nice to have a Mexican Restaurant in this area that holds up to real Mexican cuisine. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. The prices were more then reasonable even if it was Taco Tuesday. But there is a lot of specials for different nights advertised.
The atmosphere was pleasant however the floor could of been swept. That really is the only thing I could say that held this from being 5 stars.
Try it out.
Delicious Mexican food and sea food as well, the staff was very nice, Ana served us and always asking about everything is OK and she speak Spanish too.
First visit. I really liked it! The seafood soup house made and full of a variety of fresh seafood. Burrito supreme was delicious.
They did well transforming a McDonald's restaurant into a different one. Casual decor.
Definitely the best Mexican restaurant in the area.
Food is authentic Mexican. The best in the area...hands down. Quick service and very affordable.
As a California native, I can safely say these are the best ench I've found on this side of the country. Very genuine Mexican cuisine.
Food was excellent. Pleasant, quick service. Reasonable prices. We'll be back.
Omg.best Mexican restaurant around. Super friendly. We received our food very fast. It was delicious. And that salsa. YUM!
My family loves this restaurant! The food is amazing and the gluten free options are fantastic. The staff is very friendly. And I can't say enough about the margaritas! Highly recommended
Food was delicious!!! I love that this used to be a McDonald's! They did a great job redoing the inside and making it comfortable and pleasant. Best Mexican in the area!
The food was seasoned well and the staff was great! I wish the chips were better but over all a great experience! Great prices and large portions!
Me and my wife went here for dinner last night, we were craving authentic Mexican cuisine, and we were not disappointed with El Pulpo!!! Fantastic food, friendly and helpful staff, and the prices were more than reasonable. It's a 45 minute drive for us to get there but we will definitely be back soon, and bringing our friends with us!
Healthy, yummy food! Family friendly! Great place to come after a long day of work!
Probably one of the best non chain Mexican restaurants in the area. The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is very good as well. I'll drive from the other side of the Triple Cities just to go here for Mexican food. Highly recommended.
On March 3rd I physically went to the restaurant at 1:00pm and placed a take out to be picked up at 4:15 pm. I explained that I would need that order to be ready at 4:15pm because I have a business meeting at 4:30pm. I asked if this was going to be a problem and I was assured several times that the order would be ready to go at 4:15pm.
I arrived at 4:10pm to pick up my take out order and they said that they were finishing up boxing the order. I said okay seeing that I was 5 minutes early. At 4:16pm I asked if they we're almost done and they said yes. At 4:18pm I stated that I would give them 2 more minutes and I would have to leave without the order and the girl went into the kitchen and came back out with the order invoice and proceeded to add up the total and then told me the total. I said that I wasn't going to pay because the order was still not out and said that I was going to have to leave without the order. Just as I was turning to leave the man that I placed the order with who I think was the manager or owner of the restaurant came out of the kitchen with the order so I did pay for and took order.
As I was paying for the order I expressed to him my disappointment which he never acknowledged without as much as an apology.
I was told previously by several people that their food is excellent but their service is very slow whether you order there or order takeout.
That is the reason that I placed the order 3 hours in advance. With that much of a lead time and the garauntee that it would be ready for the time needed I expected that the order would be waiting for me as I arrived. Whether I give them
another chance to eat here again I WILL NOT ORDER A TAKE OUT ORDER FOR A TIME SENSITIVE MEETING! Obviously they cannot handle something like that.
Everyone was satisfied with the food including me.
I was 10 minutes late for the meeting cause by the time I left it was 4:25pm.
I would not order or go to this restaurant if you are in a hurry or you want a faster meal.
Lovely food. Comfortable seating. Friendly staff and quick service. Would definitely visit again if in same area again
We love this place. Friendly staff. Authentic Mexican food flavor. Great prices. Highly recommend!
