This small authantic mexican resaurant offers affordable classic dishes for eat in, take out or delivery. Something that makes El Limon special is that it's BYOB so we brought along a bottle of tequilla. The restaurant gave us a complimentary pitcher of their house margarita mix to enjoy our bottle of Don Julio. Cheers to a great night! The restaurant is very welcoming and the service is so friendly you feel like you are a guests in their home.

|To start the meal we ordered salsa, guacamole and tortilla chips|
|Chicken Quesadillas with fresh sides and sour cream|
|Chicken Fajitas up close|
Shrimp was the special of the night so I decided to order shrimp enchiladas. I was not sure what sauce would be best either mole or tomatillo. Not sure of what would taste best I asked our server what he suggested would be best with shrimp and he said tomole would be. He steered me in the right direction because it was very tasty. The lime and citrus flavors of the tomatillo sauce went well with the light refreshing taste of the shrimp.
|Chicken Sopes - so good, you need to try this one & it's only $3|
Chicken taco with flour tortilla and a side of refried beans
Chicken Sopes were defiantly the best value option on the menu that we tried. We had the sopes as an appetizer because they came to the table before our other orders. I was glad that it did because this was so good! For only $3 you get a very tasty dish of fried corn tortilla, layer of re-fried beans, shredded marinated chicken,topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream.
This was only my first time at El Limon but it will not be my last. I will be back! If you live in Conshy or near by keep in mind that they also offer take out and delivery(for a min. order of $15).
