El Taco Real

935 Hoffman Street

Hammond, Ind.


Since April, 1974, El Taco Real in Hammond has been bringing fresh food to the region with family recipes from the Garcia family. Raymundo Alcorta Garcia so loved his wife’s cooking that he told her, Esther Anguiano Garcia, that she should open a restaurant, which they did. Since then, the family serves the region their delectable authentic Mexican cuisine, tantalizing new diners to return, and satisfying thousands of regulars.

“We are very proud of what we do here. That’s really the critical issue. We are proud of what we’ve accomplished over the years. We think of our restaurant as our family home. The pride in our product, from the guys watching the dishes, to the ladies cooking the meals, serving the meals, bussing the tables, we won’t send any food out without looking at the presentation three times and making sure every plate is polished,” says Raymundo Garcia, owner.
