Word of mouth recommendations, we tried it. From the outside, it's not impressive. But, the service and the food was incredible! This is my new Mexican go-to in our area. The place was very clean. Service top notch. The food was great. My favorite part...was the jalapeño margaritas! YUM!More

Was a little apprehensive by looking at the outside (looked small & in a strip mall by TSC) BUT GO IN!!! it’s very nice and everything was wonderful!! Loved the salsa, guacamole (lots of onion), mexican “salad”! Hubby had “Frito” with ground beef/chorizo. I had...Carne Asada...both excellent! The refried beans tasted fresh, steak was awesome! We come to this area alot so definitely will be back!!More

El Taco Macho was recommended by a 'foodie' friend so we were anxious to try it. We were not disappointed. We went for lunch but because of the pandemic we were the only ones there. The specialty salsa sampler and chips were excellent. We chose...Guacasalsa, Verde and Cilantro Lime. We couldn't decide which one we liked best. I had Taquitos Dorados for my lunch and my friend ordered Fajitas. We were both very happy with our meals and we had leftovers to take home. The service was excellent.More

New to the area. Stopped by on way to the movies. Had the fish tacos. Tilapia. Very nice. And they serve this pickled mix with the chips and salsa before meal that is really interesting.

This restaurant is one of the better Mexican restaurants I have been to eat. The food was fresh and delicious. The restaurant advertises it self as offering Mexican street food. On the menu you find the usual Mexican entrees such as tacos, enchiladas and burritos....The surprise is they also offer Mexican sandwiches, what a treat. El Taco Macho is well worth the visit.More

My wife and I like to go here on Fridays, but we have been other nights of the week. The menu is not large but it is packed with great food. I especially love the different salsas. I've had many of the items on the...menu and all have been very tasty. The chips are always warm and delicious. Enjoy a Margarita or two while you are there, they two are very tasty. I highly recommend this place when you are in Painesville Ohio.More

It definitely was authentic tasting. Portion sizes were good. I would say it wasnt the best Mexican I've ever had but it was still good. 3 out of 4 of us said we wouldn't go back but was okay to try once atleast.
