My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant
for the last 10 years. We really enjoy the food.
The staff are always nice and the service is
great. We lived in Colorado for 13 years
and California for one year. We also had been
to Mexico a few times. I would call the food
here Mexican/American food. It is good but
not spicy. Not all Mexican food is hot and
spicy enough to burn your stomach out.
I read the review by one girl and could not
believe what I was reading. I really do mean
NOT BELIEVE !!! I don't know why anybody
would say such things. My experience and
many others I know have been very happy
with El Dorado over years.
Great food, friendly people – We love eating at this location! There's never any wait, even during dinner hours on the weekend, and the staff are always so friendly. The guy who mans the register is particularly nice, and makes us feel welcome whenever we go to eat there. The food has been consistently fantastic, and I love that they don't overload it with spices so I'm not breathing fire for hours on end.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE this place – Have been going to El Dorado for 12 years - since they were in the little building on 401. The food is consistently good - the staff is nice and the restaurant is clean. NEVER have I seen any insects like the previous reviewer wrote and my family eats there literally at least once a week. Not sure how "authentic" their food is, but it tastes good and we love it!
Run AWAYYYY! – I am an HUGE fan of authentic mexican cuisine, and I have never in my life been more disgusted and shocked then when I chose this little restaurant to try. I figured it must be an ok place considering there were quite a few cars parked out front, but there's much more to this place then what the outside portrays! The waiter who helped us was extremely rude, never once looking us in the eye and he had an attitude with us the entire time almost like we were bothering him. Our food took FOREVER, and Im guessing it was sitting in the back for awhile because it was stone cold. I went simple and ordered a couple of tacos and Im telling you...you'd be much better off just driving through the taco bell drive through then going here! The shells were soggy, and it was the most bland mexican food i've ever had (WHERES THE MEXICAN SPICE?!). Then to top it all off...As we sat there contemplating weather we should even have to PAY for this meal a HUGE rocach crawled across our table. I have never been more horrified in my life. We grabbed our things, had a word with the manager, and left without paying.
Also...In the same shopping center there is a appliance store in which my boyfriend and I bought our washer and dryer from. When we came to pick it up we had to park in the back of the building near the dumpsters to load it. We saw 2 employess that we recognized from El Dorado walk outside and preceed to urinate on the dumpters. I have never been more shocked in my life! COME ON PEOPLE! Just disgusting
Steer clear people...Steer clear!!
