Fridays and Saturdays 11am to close

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

EL EL FRIJOLES is now operating our Fall Schedule!

Our hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 am until close. We plan to be open until October 3.

Call after 11:00 am to place an order, and book your same-day time slot. We are accepting walk-ins, but a late lunch or early dinner in groups of 4 or less stand a much better chance of eating without a very long wait (or being turned away!). If you are not flexible, or are a party of 4 or more, please make a booking!

We have 3 tables in our screen porch and 10 outdoor tables, in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. We will happily pack your order to Take-Away if you wish, but you’ll need to book a time slot either way. Thanks for bearing with us during this unprecedented time of weirdness. We are optimistic that some semblance of normalcy will be returning soon

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

  • 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!
