REALLY GOOD Mexican food in Clearwater

laurie | Jun 19, 200609:24 PM

This evening we had dinner at a new Mexican restaurant (just opened in May) in Clearwater called El Gallo, located on S. Missouri between Drew and Druid. The food was authentic and fabulous. My enchiladas in red sauce were the real thing. The sweet tamales were a dessert special --something I've never had in a restaurant (only in the homes of Mexican friends during the Christmas season) and they were some of the best I've had. They also have a fresh salsa bar with several selections, all good. I recall there being some angst on this message board awhile back over finding a good chile relleno in the area. El Gallo has chiles rellenos on the menu and, while I did not try them, I'd wager a bet that they're good. The owners are from Chihuahua and know their way around the kitchen. Highly recommended.
