El Popo was Warsaw's first Mexican restaurant. It caused quite a stir upon arrival, bringing Mexican food lovers in by the droves. These days it's still popular, attracting a mixed crowd of Poles and expats. Its location makes it a downtown favorite. El Popo success is evident; the owners now have three other equally excellent places in town (Mekong, Santorini and Chianti). The decor consists of bright colors contrasting with the dark wood furniture, cute clay ashtrays and a bar with a smoking grill. It's just dark enough to be romantic, as candles are included and there is a private upstair seating section as well. The food at El Popo is a mix of favorites such as burritos and tacos, and other dishes made while you wait by the smoking grill. El Popo introduced the Margarita to Warsaw, and there is also a good selection of beer and wine.
