First of all, great service from entering the restaurant till the end. Restaurant was nice and clean. Chips and salsas brought to your table right away. We ordered a molcajete mixto. Shrimp were tasty and just the right amount of spice. The beef was soft and tender to complement the homemade corn tortillas. We asked to have chorizo to replace the chicken and it was delicious! Rice and beans are usually overseen but not here. We left right when live musicians were arriving but they had great mix of music playing. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone and we will be returning....hopefully soon!!

Whenever I get called to work in Santa Ana, my immediate reaction is, "Excellent, another chance to eat at El Calamar!" The camarones al mojo de ajo are unsurpassed. And I'm not sure if it's still on the menu, but they used to take a LOBSTER and fry it in BACON! Need I say more? I can't wait to return!
