The absolute best, authentic Spanish Mexican cuisine, clearly made with pure love! We have lived in Maine for 20 years and have finally found our one true favorite restaurante!! The Tamales are exactly how my Grandma Concha used to make and I am utterly delighted!!!
I had the Fish Burritos and it might just be the best burrito in Portland! It is so flippen flavorful and a awesome portion. Also had the churros which were also fantastic
No joke definitely the best quesadillas I've ever had Fell in love with my first bite Definitely will be coming back for more I highly recommend this item you won't be disappointed It's everything you could dream of in a quesadilla and more Definitely recommended
This is the most authentic and delicious Mexican food in Maine. Staff is friendly, and meals have good portions.
We ordered shredded beef taquitos, beef tamales and chips and salsa. Everything blew our minds! The fresh salsa had just the right amount of kick to wake up your taste buds and leave a tingle. I had never tried tamales before and the savory beef inside was mouth watering. I will certainly be ordering them again. The taquitos were crunchy and light without being oily and the filling was unctuous and flavorful. We can't wait to order again.
My favorite item so far! It's absolutely delicious.
We come here about once a month. I had chicken tostada today. The chicken was so full of flavor! It came w delicious rice and beans. My daughter had the tacos 1 chicken 1 pork and she loved it! Great job El Corazón!
We recieved some delcious meals from you all through 2dinein at my workplace yesterday. I tried the vegetarian burrito and it was delicious! Ive never visited your establishment before but im definitely hooked and i will be by for sure for some more delcious food!
We have ordered take out from here several times in the past few months with restaurants being closed for dine in. Take out never tastes as good, but I must say everything we have has has been delicious! My son had a chicken quesadilla and it was by far the best I have ever had, the grilled chicken was so flavorful. The tortilla soup was amazing. We have not been disappointed with anything.
Generous portion of perfectly grilled steak. Accompanying vegetables and sides are a delicious complement. The flour tortillas are terrific -- either on the side or filled with contents of the plate. Tastes are fresh and spices beautifully blended -- truly great fajitas.
SO good. Just the right mix of meat and rice. Perfect char on the tortilla. Don't worry about it being too spicy. It's not crazy spicey.
This is the best steak we ever had. The flavor and tenderness are fantastic. This was our first dinner out in a very long time. This is our go-to restaurant for authentic Mexican. The owners are involved in the daily operations to make sure everything is perfect. The Nostalgia Punch is an awesome tropical rum cocktail. I wish I had room for 2. I only had room for 1/2 my dinner, but I really needed room for Flan!! You will not be disappointed. The outdoor seating is great for people watching!
This shouldn't be legal, IT'S TOO GOOD! On top of everything else I savored here. Definitely going beck ASAP :O
The lamb is outstanding. Tender, fall off the bone. Highly recommend!
Joe, it has been an absolute pleasure to dine with you and Laura. Just love you two and your El Corazon. All of your food is amazing, but have to say I especially love this dish. Thankful for your mom and for you two for sharing these wonderful treats with us.
Fabulous value, really tasty food. Perfect takeout for the family. Everyone loved making their own tacos. This fed 4 of us with some fixings leftover. Will be coming back for this.
The California Burrito was honestly the best burrito that I've ever had in my life. The flavors were outstanding and the steak was so soft. I've been multiple times now to get this burrito and I highly recommend it!!
Have had many dishes here and they are all excellent! Unfair to make us pick one! I went with the Portland's Own seafood cocktail because it is unique to Portland and it is amazing! Margaritas are always on point. Service has always been exceptional. Joe and Laura are wonderful people and really have made us feel special. We very much appreciate you all and looking forward to being able to come visit soon! Will carry out until then! Thanks all!
The platter is amazing and so are the margs! Plus the staff is honestly the best around!
The mole is probably the best I have ever had. And they are incredibly generous with it - so much so that the lovely staff will bring you extra chips to scoop up the excess sauce after you've devoured the entire platter. The rice and beans side is delicious and this is probably the dish I would recommend above all their other amazing options.
The California Burrito was spectacular. Meat was well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Paired with Jalapeno Poppers and it makes an excellent meal!
Absolutely love the bad hombre! Me and my partner have been treating ourselves to El Corazon about once a week lately and almost every time both of us get the bad hombre. Delicious and filling!
Ordered your app platter this evening and I was not disappointed! Especially love the taquitos!
You can't go wrong going to Restaurante El Corazon for dinner in Portland. The food is outstanding! With all the places in Portland that has great food, El Corazon is our favorite go-to restaurant!! If you haven't been, you're missing out. Our favorite is the Sundevil Carne Asada Steak with a Nostalgia Punch. To top it off, A flan for me and churros for dessert
I thought I knew Mexican food, but the sopes were a wonderful surprise. Absolutely delicious. I had it with carnitas. The price was totally reasonable, too. My wife and I aren't huge eaters, so with the rice and beans that come with the dish, this was dinner for two for less than $15 with tax. We actually ordered the menudo too, but the sopes was enough for us to the menudo was saved for the following day.
I had this burrito on my first getaway with my now wife of going on 2 years. We sat outside and realised it was happy hour. Tingles from the spice of the burrito cooled by the tingle of the foam from my Tecate. Best burrito I have had in a long time. P.S. My wife and I are returning for a second trip August 6 thru the 9th and just saw that this contest exists. It would be so cool to be able to dine again, amid the virus, and rekindle those fond memories. And my belly afterwards!
First trip to Maine and got this MONSTER of a burrito with some Tecate beer in the afternoon sun. Spice, savory, and definitely worth the try. And... a duck tour bus passed by while were eating. Dinner and a show!
Since COVID hit, I've had a chance to order from all of the Mexican style restaurants in the Portland area. El Corazon was by far the best. The food was excellent, the price was on par with everyone else, and the menu had a wide variety to choose from. I ordered Burrito and grilled corn. Both were superb. My only complaint was that I wanted to order both dishes again as my Father's Day dinner of choice, however you were closed. That was disappointing.
If you haven't tried one of these, I absolutely recommend! They're the only way to eat a hot dog now
Tender, beautifully seasoned lamb shank, worthy of any fine dining venue. This generous portion was delicious; complemented by terrific sauce and side dishes.
My review is more about the quality of service I receive when I buy from El Corazon. I often pick up my food to bring back to my office, after a few orders the gentleman who runs the place recognized my voice and order and would greet me by name. When I first started ordering there he even helped me to understand the menu better so that I could get the best price for my order. I appreciate the quality of food and customer service.
A few of my girlfriends and I ordered takeout for a birthday celebration earlier this week. I believe it was Jen who took our order over the phone. She was unbelievably helpful - thank you! Two of us ordered the Carne Asada Quesadilla without the wrap (Low carb living). Jen told us the quesadillas themselves are just the meat choice and cheese, no veggies, so we added jalapeños and onions - it was amazing! All of our food was amazing! The only thing we were disappointed about was that we all love guac and couldn't wait to try it from a very authentic restaurant. Sadly, although the descriptions of the meals we got state they come with crema, guac and Pico, we did not receive these with our meals (one order did request no crema, though). We will definitely order again, but we will also definitely make sure we ask for those items specifically. I'm sure they will make our already fantastic meals even better. 😊 Also, the dip that comes with the jalapeño poppers is delicious, and for anyone living low carb, the thick outer breading is super-easy to thoroughly remove. Yum!
Hands down the best Mole I've had in Maine and possibly in my life. Everything I've ordered here has been delicious but this takes the cake. El Corazon is of the rare gems of the Portland restaurant scene that's under-the-radar and affordable. If you're on the fence about ordering from here, do it! You won't regret it.
These are so, so good! Order two, you'll want extra.
This was a bargain (low price for what you get) and a very interesting dish. Wonderful flavor combination and attractive presentation. The grilled jalapeño was a special bonus.
Every part of the Fajitas on their own was great and put them all together was some of the best Fajitas I have ever had!
Simply the best... better than all the rest!
I had this last night for dinner at my friends house and tonight I'm back! This is just homemade real food. Simply that!
Carne asada burrito is the best in Portland. Top notch!
