Best enchilada's Ive had. Thank you, Thank you! <3
I come in once or twice a week and get the chicken burrito. It is always fresh and consistent. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is perfect for a quick bite or relaxing evening out.
Love it! This is my favorite dish to order as well as the California burrito. Everything I've ever tried here has been amazing. The staff are always friendly and I always recommend this place when people ask for good Mexican food!
Came with my girlfriend for the first time and was blown away by The Suisas with Shrimp!!! They were delicious down and tasted just like the ones I had in Mexico. Will be back again for sure.
This is a must every time we go to El Corazon. Usually as a appetizer before our meal. So gosh darn good, I crave them fortnightly!
Hard to go wrong with anything on the menu but the Mole is out of this world! Huge portions, always accommodating to special requests, and always consistent. If the fresh corn tortillas stuffed full of shredded chicken and smothered in mouth watering Mole isn't enough to satisfy your appetite it comes with a side of rice and the silkiest refried beans I've ever had. 10/10 every time.
Chili rellenos is the first thing I will try on any Mexican menu. Was not disappointed. It was one of the best I have had. The coating on the pepper was good and the pepper itself very tender with gooey cheese. The rice and beans balanced out the plate. Yummy!
Been in town 3 weeks have eaten at El Corazon 3 times. Loved each meal. Chile rellenos,always a favorite of mine,great here. The mole phenomenal, a testament to great Mexican food. Had bad hombre , Rosa's enchiladas and sonoran hot dog. All great. Just working our way through the menu. Staff is great too!
Huge burritos! Great value and always delicious
Really everything is so good here, my absolute favorite restaurant in Portland! (And really probably all of Maine). The chicken burrito is my favorite, but I also love the green Chile and cheese tamales. I can't say enough good things about El Corazon!
I absolutely love the papusas at el Corazon! It's the only menu item that I order, actually (aside from the chips of course). I like the cheese that comes sprinkled on top and the sides of sour cream and guacamole that come with it as well. Two make a perfect meal.
Shrimp Burrito, Queso Fundido, and churros My wife and I have been eating El Corazon burritos since the food truck first opened around 6 or 7 years ago. Ever since our first burritos from the truck, we have been hooked. They are hands down the best burritos that we have ever had, and that's not without trying to taste as many burritos as we can. While we are no longer located in Portland, we were excited that they opened a restaurant a couple of years ago and we eat there just about every time that we are in town. I'm pretty sure that we've tried just about every other Mexican restaurant in Portland and this is THE best Normally I get the chicken or carnitas burrito, but this time I ventured a little and got the shrimp burrito. I was a little worried that there would be just a few shrimp but I was very happy and will certainly get it again. In addition to the amazing food, the owners and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and make us feel at home. We will certainly be back again soon!
El Corazon is a staple Mexican restaurant in Portland. The bad homre burrito is the best, spiciest burrito in town. Happy hour specials like a margarita pitcher of draft Pacifico make the perfect pairing!!
This is one of the best deals in Portland! Not only does it feed 4 people with leftovers, but everything on it is fantastic.
The shrimp tacos were some of the best I have ever had. The seasoning on the shrimp and the sauce on the tacos was the perfect amount of savor and spice. Would highly recommend trying these out
Love that pupusas are offered! So delicious and hard to find other places
This is a delicious meal, as is everything else on the menu! Don't question the fact that it is goat, I had never eaten goat either! Best Mexican food in Portland!!
Totally authentic. We order these in bulk every Christmas to share with friends. Either flavor is delicious. It's hard to eat just one. Or two.
The veggie burrito is the best I've ever had. All the flavors of the quality ingredients meld together until its hard to recognize a single flavor. Rather every bite is a unified, hearty, and warm total delight of the senses.
Everything on the Menu is delicious! Since moving back to New England after living in California for 10 years, It has been extremely hard finding good Mexican food. This place does nothing wrong.
The pozole is excellent. If you're getting take-out or delivery I highly recommend adding this to your order. It keeps, and reheats, well. Make sure to add squeezes of lime and the other items provided on the side. Even the small order made a nice lunch.
Their rice and beans are delicious. Perfectly cooked!
I was really excited to see this on the menu. My wife is from Jalisco, MX and her family makes this on special occasions. Man is this good! Step out of your comfort zone away from tacos and burritos and try a piece of authentic Mexican cuisine! It is not overly spicy and the symphony of broth and spices will warm you up from the inside out! A must-try for anyone that wants some REAL Mexican food.
Delicious generous meal. I had one chicken and one pork. Very good. This is my favorite restaurant for lunch or dinner.
One of the best Shrimp Tacos I ever tried in Portland, ME area. I will definitely recommend it.
We tried a number of menu items and were not disappointed. The food is delicious but particularly the Fried Green tomatoes suprised me. I thought the texture might be off but was wrong and what a lovely flavor bomb!!
This was truly the best Mexican dish I've had in Portland. Had it with Mole sauce and it was bomb
The burrito was absolutely mouthwatering! Will defiantly go back! The atmosphere is cozy, food hot, and staff are super friendly. 10/10
I really would love to reciter margaritas (you'll regret it getting a pitcher).. but that wasn't a category..... The best Mexican food around. The ambiance is nice and the staff are lovely!
The fish burrito is the best I have ever had! The combination of rice, beans, fish and the pink sauce is absolutely delicious. The best I've ever had.
El Corazon is my favorite mexican restaurant. I first discovered their food truck when it used to often be at Rising Tide Brewery on Saturday afternoons, and loved it! You had to get there early, as the food was usually sold out in a couple hours. Now that they've opened a restaurant, I can be assured of getting my favorite every time, which is their Polo Asado (chicken) Burrito with added grilled jalapenos. It is simply awesome. The Pork Belly Torta is pretty fantastic too!
My husband and I drove down from Augusta to have dinner at El Corazon on January 11. I had the fish burrito and as always it did not disappoint. The coleslaw and chipotle aioli are a perfect combination to bring out the flavor of the fried fish in the burrito. If you imbibe, I would recommend the Lola margarita to go along with your meal. We are so happy that they opened up this restaurant in Portland. Before that we always made sure to visit their food truck when we spent a day in Portland.
The carnitas tostadas are my go to order at El Corazon. This dish is consistently delicious and refreshingly light. Add a tecate with lime and you can't go wrong. El Corazon is our favorite spot to eat in Portland!
The happy hour is such a great deal with some amazing food. Love the tacos and margaritas! The view of the square makes it a perfect spot to people watch.
By far my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Portland area. The chicken suisas never disappoint! The holiday drinks right now are fantastic, I tried the spiced apple cider (comes iced) and the sangria. The staff are also so friendly!
Bad Hombre is definitely a go-to item. Love the queso Fundito as well.
This was a delicious dish! We eyeballed it as another patron devoured theirs. Also, it was mentioned as a popular item by the bartender. The verdict? No regrets. Flavorful, comforting, great portion. I took a box home, but let's not kid ourselves... I couldn't save it for lunch the next day; I ate it as soon as I was home.
Spicy and delicious. We order this every single time we come in, regardless of how many other dishes we are getting or how many people are in our party. It reminds me of the seafood cocktails I've had in Mexico. So good!
California burrito = da bomb. Fast, friendly staff. Also the churros are awesome
I have had just about everything on their menu and it is all delicious. I exceptionally love their fish Burritos/tacos. They have the best Mexican food in all of Maine
