Not much to say there were 6 employees and 8 customers. They had no concept of being nice or even helpful. It was like the customers where there for their convienionce. Try somewhere else first.

Best authentic Mexican food in Brentwood! Their beans are to die for. Great burritos and tacos. They also have pretty good nachos, not like you get at Taco Bell. Everything is fresh!

For years, people have been telling me how great El Gallito is, and how the food is worth the wait. I was warned that they are not fast. Recently I drove by there and saw that there were only two people waiting outside, so I thought it would be a good time to try them. It took them about five minutes to take my order. Then the wait started. I order two simple dishes, tacos with rice and beans, and a burrito. The other two people still waiting started talking to me. One said that she had been there many times, and they were slow, but the food was delicious and worth the wait. The other person was getting very angry, because he had phoned in his order and was still waiting for a half-hour.

Finally my food came to the window after 45 minutes. This is for a To Go meal. I took the food home and we ate it. There was nothing wrong with the food, but also nothing special about it. I don't think I would want to risk going again.

The food here is fabulous. Authentic and inexpensive. Shredded beef tostadas are wonderful and because we order from home and pick up at the restaurant, they dont make them until we are there so that they dont get soggy. Two thumbs up!

PROS: Authentic ffood
CONS: not a lot of parking

The food here is authentic Mexican and it is absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. Tamales are their specialty. You can get pork, chicken, chile and cheese, vegetarian and others. They let you place orders in advance and you can buy who trays. Their food is really great, however, the wait time is very long. Part of this reason is that they are so busy, but sometimes it is just a mystery. They do have a small dining room and even smaller parking lot.
