El Columpio 

Try authentic South American food at El Columpio! The restaurant opened just two years ago and has already made a big impression on Mitchell's culinary scene. We're big fans of the pollo asada burrito, pollo poblano, and shrimp fajita burrito. El Columpio's interior will initially draw you in, but the tacos are enough to keep you returning. Among the menu items are fajitas, enchiladas, and, of course, a variety of tasty tacos. Once you've tried their food, it's no surprise to see how well this restaurant is reviewed.

Following her realization that authentic Mexican food was lacking, she decided to open her restaurant. All menu items are made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients. There are items such as tacos, enchiladas, chimichangas, and tamales on the menu. Carne asada tacos and chicken tortas are local favorites.
