Ok-this place is the best Mexican in Portland. One word-churros. I've had their tacos, enchiladas, and my husband tried the young goat dish which he thought was fantastic!
My husband and I had chimichangas, do you know how hard it is to find chimis in Portland? I had the pork and husband beef, both delicious and huge! It came with sides that were yummy as well and packed for Covid take-out that arrived home looking like it would on your restaurant table. I (we), will return again. Next time, I am going to take home their margarita mix to make drink at home, I didn't find out about this option until I picked order up.
I had El Corazon's Flan and it is amazing. Flan is my favorite dessert and every time I see it on a menu I give it a try. This includes when I'm home in New England or on vacation! I've had it in Mexico, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica and El Corazon's is one of my favorites.
We lived in AZ for a while where authentic Mexican food was not too hard to find. We are so excited to have stumbled upon El Corazon just after moving to Portland a few weeks ago! The carne was so tender and had really good flavor. I loved the salsa too. It had good heat with a little bit of a smoky flavor. We will definitely be back!
I grew up in a town that was half Mexican, so I was raised to love good Mexican food, and I usually go "home" to get my taco fix every year. During the pandemic, I've been missing good tacos, but tonight, we got the El Corazon Platter. We opened our takeout and... it was a taquiza! Que rico! Our family of 4 ate until we were full (and then had another taco because they were so good), and still had many leftovers. Muchisimas gracias!
Been eating here since the first day they were in business as a food truck. Authentic food and great people. Everything we order has been fantastic; even my kids eat everything - that is a true test. Thank you for being in Portland.
Exceptional. Ever since I first had the birria, I've been unable to order anything else!—Though it's all great at El Corazon! Fresh, wholesome ingredients, cooked and seasoned to perfection, in a clean, friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Not only the best Mexican in Portland, but one of the best restaurants. And super affordable (with a great happy hour!)! Thanks for the great food, El Corazon!
Best Chicken Mole ever!
These are the most amazing tacos ever. I'm not even a vegetarian but these are my favorite tacos in Portland!
This is our go to for take out. We almost feel guilty ordering this since it's so much amazing food for a small price. This feeds our family of 5 which includes 2 teenage boys. This is the best Mexican food in the U.S. Their red tamales are fantastic as well.
Such a killer mouth watering burrito and in no time- their takeout is great! Nice texture, well seasoned, beef would recommend. Chipotle who? The hatch chili sauce was also excellent. I'll be back!!!
This was the perfect combination of savory and spicy, with a wonderful array of sides to mix in! The shrimp is deliciously seasoned, too.
For those that know me, I could live off chips and salsa. I'm the guy at the party that stands by the bowl of chips and is putting salsa covered, crisps of heaven into my mouth one right after the next. El Corazon offers perfectly salty, crunchy chips with salsa that is the exact right combination of flavor, consistency, and spice. You can't go wrong here and they don't skimp on quality for even the most basic items. Can't wait for my next helping with a refreshing margarita!
A GREAT place to eat,,It never fails..The food is excellent..and the staff is very friendly.. and it is reasonably priced..A must try...
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.
This is my go-to order! I alternate between chicken and beef, and they're both tasty. Filling & it comes with their beans which is one of my favorite parts.
chino was so good! crispy on the outside and filled with flavor on the inside. highly recommend!
I'm from California and this is one of the couple of good restaurants that hit home with good authentic Mexican food! The California burrito is one of my favorite but their pozole is to die for.
A great choice! Chile relleno is awesome and the chicken mole is to die for! All of their food is amazing!
Best Chimichanga around , hands down! ! Chicken was so tender and juicy , perfectly fried and just the right amount of cheese! And the beans ! Possibly the best refried beans I have ever tested . Authentic.
Fantastic! Lots of white onion and cilantro
You need to look out the window to make sure you are in Portland Maine and not the border of Mexico. Everything we ordered was amazing. The timing of the drinks, appetizers and then the main course were perfect! There was no room for dessert but there's always the next time and rumor has it they serve the best Churros on the east coast! Service very friendly and a terrific neighborhood Mexican restaurant! Now I just need to locate their food truck for more!
We live about 20 minutes away and it's worth the drive for take-out! We had tamales, pozole, tacos, guacamole and more. Everything is flavorful and well-presented. The good news is that everything reheats very nicely since it's 20 minutes home as well!
It is very rear to find a good Burrito in Maine not to mention with beef tongue or cheek. Not only did I like the meat selection the food was delicious! The Burritos are the size of my forearms and are amazing. I've become a frequent customer when I'm in the mood for some delicious Mexican. The Enchiladas are excellent too. I haven't had anything that I didn't enjoyed yet. Try it yourself you won't be disappointed.
Somewhere between a luxurious shrimp cocktail and the best gazpacho imaginable, this is one of my favorite dishes in Portland. Piquant, spicy, lively, fresh, and surprising. Careful, the large-size version will fill you up-- Ask the chef his inspiration and history of this recipe: it's a great story...
This is one of my favorite burritos ever! I usually drip salsa picante on a burrito, but even though it's included in the take-out bag, I never need to use it. I love the combination of meats, the cheese, and the heat.
This is legitimately one of the best burritos I've ever had. It's my personal favorite of the Portland area and my go-to at El Corazon.
Not for the faint of heart! If you love spice, sign yourself up for a serving of the jalapeno poppers. They were deliciously crisp on the outside and stuffed with the mitigating smoothness of cheese. And they were spicy HOT. Perfect partner for the spicy margarita!
These tacos are amazing. The crisp on the tomato, the sauce, and the beans here are the best you can get anywhere.
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.
