Complete New Remodel in 2012, come see our new look. Welcome to El Tipico Mexican American Restaurant, Toledo's oldest Mexican restaurant. El Tipico has been family owned and located in the same Toledo location since 1968. From the moment you walk in the door you'll notice the little differences that set El Tipico apart from other Mexican restaurants. You can be sure your meal was prepared using the same family recipes El Tipico has used since 1968, to ensure you're having the best meal you've ever had. Everything is made fresh everyday in their kitchen from hand cut vegetables and meats to their secret salsas. Each recipe is unique and authentic to Mexico. El Tipico's menu features Mexican specialties including a large variety of appetizers and dips, fresh salads, homemade soups, and main dishes that specialize in steak, chicken, beef and vegetarian entrees. El Tipico is open six days a week closed on Sunday and located minutes from The Toledo Zoo, just West of Anthony Wayne on South Avenue. Lunch orders can be phoned in ahead of time and will be ready when you arrive. Large orders and party platters are also available, check out their party menu on this site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The whole staff was very friendly, definitely family owned. The food was delicious, unique, all organic. Easily some of the best Mexican food I have had in a long time, and we have plenty of good Mexican restaurants in town. We got the dessert chimichanga filled with organic peanut butter and Mexican chocolate and ice cream, and it was fantastic. Nov 8, 2014

Rated 2 out of 5 by the waitress that we usually get has a horrible attitude. she is blantantly rude, ignores you and seems to get lost for long periods of time. :-( i'm not sure why, but because of this it will be a long time before i come back - unfortunate because i really like the quality of the food and Dina Nov 7, 2014
