Great Mexican food doesn't just happen. It takes time, knowledge and experience. That goes for a great restaurant as well.


After spending years in every aspect of food service and restaurant management, Tony Olmeda has found himself in a position that allows him to provide the most authentic and flavorful Mexican cuisine to be found anywhere in the mountains. Relying on the freshest ingredients and the most exacting of spices, El Cid's extensive menu captures the true tangy flavors of Mexico.


Voted "Best of the Valley" Mexican Restaurants and winner of the "Central Bellas Artes Salsa Contest" 2 years in a row, Tony now presents his unique recipes in a host of Mexican favorites.


Using the leanest of meats, El Cid offers Chilie Verde, Chili Colorado, sauteed seafood and steak dinners as well as Tacos, Enchiladas, Nachos, and much more. There are over 95 items on El Cids menu, including a delicious breakfast menu which is served anytime of the day, every day of the week.


Our famous tequila Margaritas made with Tony's secret recipe are claimed by many to be the best in town - Fantastico!


Tony believes that being made fresh daily from a homemade recipe is the only way to achieve the quality of food that is served to his customers.  Authentic Home Style Cooking!!


Every item on our menu is prepared fresh while you relax in our outdoor patio or take in the beautiful High Sierra views from our deck while enjoying "The Best" Margarita in the mountains. The large family atmosphere in our dining room makes all of our customers feel at home.


 Tony invites you to join the list of satisfied customers and make El Cid your favorite place to dine. Be sure to stop in and see us on your next journey to Bass Lake or Yosemite National Park! We'll be happy to welcome you to the El Cid family!!
