Open Wed & Thurs 11am-7pm

We make our entire menu from scratch, every day, and our food depends on lots of fresh, locally-sourced components.

EL EL FRIJOLES is OPEN with winter hours: Wednesday & Thursday from 11am to 7pm!

Call after 11:00am to place an order, and book your same-day time slot. While we have ample seating available, it is all outside (presently covered in snow and it’s about 29 degrees out). We have cleared off the tables, however, and the fire pit is ready to go and it is actually beautiful outside, so you are welcome to make a stand and enjoy your food here if you are particularly hardy.

We have erected a brand-new shelter just to the East of our kitchen, and we will serve you through the socially-distanced food-portal there. We will continue to accept cash or checks or credit cards or gift certificates or barter or whatever. If you’d like to make some other, weird arrangements, just call and let us know.

Daily specials, as well as any pertinent service updates, will be posted on our Facebook and Instagram feeds daily by 11:00am. Pick-up time slots are allocated on a first-come basis via telephone calls to 207-359-2486.

  • No email, text or messenger orders will be considered.
  • Stand-by, or walk-in, orders will be taken as available, but there may be substantial wait times under certain conditions.
  • Please choose one member of your party to approach the service window and transact business.
  • Masks MUST be worn when approaching the service window.
  • Social Distancing etiquette is required in public areas of the property.
  • State of Maine quarantine rules are in effect: Do NOT come to the taqueria within 14 days of arriving or if you or any of your party are sick!
  • If you are recently arrived, and are under quarantine or self-isolation, call us and we will find a way to get food to you!
