The restaurant was opened in late 2015 by two friends who impulsively decided 'to open a restaurant'! Since early 2018 El Pistolero has changed hands but the new owner has continued with the philosophy of offering Mexican inspired dishes using fresh ingredients creating strong flavours. The focus remains on giving the diners an authentic Mexican experience.

The restaurant has a cozy laid back atmosphere and the outdoor decks provide an al fresco dining experience, or an ideal place to sip on a Margarita cocktail, one of a number of tequila based cocktails available.

The menu is small focusing on quesadillas, tacos, burritos and the best selling nachos. The nachos are made daily from fresh masa which makes the Nachos Grande the firm favourite of many diners, some who travel from Johannesburg to enjoy this dish.

Everything on the menu is freshly prepared including the sauces, salsa and guacamole. The focus on flavours can be found in dishes that include drunken (beer) beans, jalapeño poppers and the various gourmet tacos.

El Pistolero has established itself as a favourite for hosting small to large groups for special occasions, and occasionally being hired completely for private functions. Events are regularly advertised on their Facebook page such as Dia de Muertos (Day of the dead) and National Maragrita Day.




Head northeast on Ben Schoeman Freeway/N1 (Toll road). Take exit 139 for M30/Garstfontein Road and continue straight ahead onto Garstfontein Road/M30 for about 2.6 km. Turn right onto Issie Smuts Street and then turn left onto Duvernoy Street. El Pistolero will be on the right, on the corner of Chopin and Duvernoy Streets.
