This restaurant located in the heart of Omaha's thriving Hispanic community offers friendly service, a full bar and some of the most authentic Mexican food north of the border. The traditional combination plate, which consists of an enchilada, chile relleno, taco, refried beans and rice (USD7.40), is a good choice for an El Alamo rookie. Other favorites include Arroz con Pollo (USD8.10), chimichanga (USD7.90) and Steak Piccado (USD8.10). The service is good, the atmosphere is casual and the Margaritas are outstanding.
This place is simply the best. I have been eating there for almost 15 years and never had a problem. The chips and salsa are great...both homemade! The beans and rice are excellent, make sure you get a meal that includes them. Also, their lunch specials are well priced! Overall...best mexican food in omaha. The owners and staff are very friendly.
great place to eat and the owners dont forget you once you have been there.I went to taste of omaha today and saw that el alamo was there and went straight to their both and got a burrito and taco,used to live closer to resturant but moved to lavista but I still go out of my way to go down there and eat because it is worth it.I like it because it isnt very busy and they pile the food on keep it up el alamo.
The only thing that was good was the salsa. The food was very greasy. The beans were watery. The taco shells were not homemade. They tasted like what you would by at the supermarket. I thought this tasted nothing like real Mexican food.
The nachos are HUGE and delicious. The burrito L special is so good we keep going back all the time to just have this huge delicious burrito heaped with sour cream and guacamole and inside is different at each end. Mouth watering.
The two free sauces, red and green, for chip dipping are plenty hot, so don't start until you get a drink first. Whooee. They keep the chips coming too if you want them. No extra charge. The green sauce is supposed to be the hottest but the red is PLENTY hot.
The service is fine, prompt and once they get to know you, more friendly.
