Like eating Taco Bell but paying more for it. Wouldn't even call this Mexican food. No flavor, salsa was a step above tomato sauce and chips were from a bag. Not worth it at all.

We had a family reunion at El Presidente last night. There were 21 of us so they set us up in our own room. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I can't say the same for the margaritas but everything else made up for

We are new to Vancouver and ate at El Presidente for the first time last night and thought it was fantastic! If you want authentic Mexican food, and not the American/Mexican tex mex food, then this is the place to go! Its an old classic

How this restaurant received four and five star puzzles me!! I can only attribute it to fake reviews. The food, service and atmosphere are poor to say the least. I am positive that the place has NOT been deep cleaned in years. The

I have been going to El Prez for as long as I can remember. The staff...especially Mario, is the best in Vancouver. They are always very accomodating and the food is great. I especially love lunchtime and the quesadillas. \r

They charged me for another party's bill and charged me for mine! To top it off they won't fix it..So if you decide to go there than make sure to check your account to be sure they don't do that to you.

This was only my second time visiting El Presidente. As I mentioned before, we were a bit hesitant to visit this restaurant based on previous reviews, but are so glad we did. I had the Steak Presidente and my wife had the tacos, both came out perfectly cooked and the service was also fantastic. We will be back again!

We tried this for the first time this evening. We waited quite a while to be sat down. The place was not really all that clean and filled with a bunch of loud white trash folks. The service was pretty bad. It took 25 minutes to get a diet coke and Sangria (which was the worst I've ever had). The food was awful, and had no taste. The chips tasted like dirty cooking oil. All in all I would NEVER recommend this to anyone.

Pros: The building is made of brick (that's nice)

Cons: Basically the whole experience was no good

El Presidente is located in downtown Vancouver in a funky old building. It has an old world Mexican feel and is dark and spacious. The food is OK but there is lots of it for the hungry patron. It's very kid friendly.

This is okay food but nothing too impressive. The service was also slow and the food was a little on the bland side. The bathrooms were very dirty and I was afraid to even wash my hands in the sink. Yuck!

This is a decent mexican meal if Who Song's is booked. Not very tasty food and doesn't have the same kind of personal touch. The meals are bland and are overpriced.

We have been going to this restaurant for years, however over the past six months it has been rapidly decling. Food is not as good, staff is very hard to find, prices are up and overall cleanliness is not what it used to be. We loved going there, but will not be back until we hear it has gotten better. What happened?

I visited this resteraunt while I was in VanCouver over the holiday, I was not impressed at all. My drink glass was full of greasy fingerprints so I went to get another one and got more of the same. The food was nothing special, my Chile Relleno was bitter and my picodillo was tough. I got a bad case of heartburn from the meal and was up most the night on the toilet. I thought the staff was friendly but they did not seem to understand me even when I spoke in Spanish so it made it difficult to order rmy food. They need to change the hideous carpeting too as well as get a better dishwasher. Also the salt they used to rim my glass was yellowed in places possibly a dirty and/or contaminated rim-wetting sponge, at any rate, I was very disappointed.

Cons: Glasses were greasy and fingerprinted and food was not very good.

I'm a total snob when it comes to dining out. I have really high expectations, as I am paying good money to eat at a restaurant. However, in the great Northwest I find that many restaurants are lacking in quality food and especially quality service. I don't know how some restaurants even stay in business!

El Presidente in Vancouver totally blew me away! It's a basic Americanized Mexican menu, but done WELL. The chips and salsa were great, margaritas strong, and even the beans and rice were tasty! The tamale was moist and flavorful. And best of all, the service was prompt and friendly. We never ran out of water, and we never ran out of chips and salsa. Dinner is decently priced too, all 4 of us getting out of there for under $20 each (including alcohol & tip).

I'd strongly recommend El Presidente to anyone looking to get their money's worth and have a quality dining experience to go along with it. This party of 4 gives it 8 thumbs up!

I'll admit up front I'm new to the Couve and still haven't tried everywhere in town but of the Mexican restaurants i've been to El Presidente is by far the best! Each dish has a unique and wonderful flavor all it's own, unlike some Mexican joints you'll find, the chicken for the enchiladas tastes nothing like the chicken in Carnita's de Pollo. The staff is also very friendly and prompt. Our first time there the place was packed, when the waitress brought the draft beer I ordered I noticed the cup had about 1/2 inch left unfull. I wasn't going to say anything but she immediately apologized and explained the tap was just being changed and the next one was on the house! Can't complain about that.
I keep intending to explore more of Vancouver but whenever I crave Mexican food I keep finding myself back at El Presidente.

Pros: Food, Service, Price

Hard not to overeat a good Mexican food buffet. Go for lunch, spend $5.25 and be satisfied. Sure the food isn't the BEST you have ever had, but it is there, cheap, and a buffet. Atmosphere is good for a Mexican restaurant and service is average. I wouldn't bother ordering off the menu: get what you want off the buffet and customize. Chips are good, and the salsa is excellent!

Pros: cheap food, easy to find, ample parking

Service is always great and very friendly!
Drinks are pretty good, and the food is good. You do have a wide menu and they will accomodate easily when asked. The place even though a little tacky in color, it appears to be kept pretty clean.
Romantic it isn't, more for family or casual dining. Price was average, no problems parking and I would reccomend it.

The salsa and chips were really good.

Only vegetarian item I found on the menu was a bean burrito and I wanted more than that. I got the fajita without meat/cheese/sour cream (I am a vegan). A big plate of sauted onions and green peppers was brought out to me along with flour tortillas and a plate of refried beans and spanish rice so I could assemble them myself.

I washsed my meal down with a nice glass of pineapple juice
