When I know we're eating at El Cid I don't eat all day. Seriously. The portions are so large you have to prepare for this like an athlete.
They offer up beef that looks like dinosaur. It never fails when it comes to your table everyone stares. I usually get the veal-they serve me several medallions (one or two I consumer, the rest goes home). They surround your veal with thin baked slivers of what look like potatoe chip but aren't. I get the dark chocolate mousse for desert that always wires me up for the nite.
This is a huge place, the ambience is very pelasant. There are rooms upstairs and down so you never feel like you're eating with a crowd.
Excellent food, enormous portions, my favorite place to dine.
PROS: Excellent, excellent food
