Service was poor, crowded could not figure why. It must have been the big margarita,s because the food was poor. I had three tacos little meat with cheese on top with lettuce and tomato's on side of plate. Ask for a guacamole salad and got ice berg lettuce with I table spoon of guacamole. My guacamole soft taco had maybe... More

The huevos con chorizo lunch special was great! The salsa and chips were fresh as well. I'd definitely come back!

My husband and I ate here the other night and everything was absolutely GREAT! Friendly, helpful service, nice clean atmosphere, fast delicious food. I highly recommend the guacamole starter dip which is creamy and smooth. His steak was perfectly marbled and had a superb char-grilled taste. This is my TOP favorite authentic Mexican food choice in Auburn!

While visiting our grandson he requested we go here for lunch. I had the taco salad which was ok. I have had better and I have had worst. The service was good but the food was just average. Our grandson liked it and that is all that counted.

I noticed in a lot of the reviews that folks complained the food was not spicy enough. They need to understand that this is a Mexican restaurant and NOT Tex Mex. Mexican restaurants in the states and Mexico do not have the spice level in the foods, but have hot sauces available if you wish to make the meal spicier.... More

The food is not something that I would go out of my way to eat. It was just standard beans, rice, chips and salsa. I ordered flautas and they were rolled loosely and not too remarkable. We had the special margaritas they were good but again not in the top 20% of great Mexican food places I have eaten.

My second visit here and much the same as last year. Fast service and good margaritas and chips. The food however is just average. I had a chicken enchilada, cheese enchilada and a beef taco. The taco was really all that had good flavor - the others tasted bland unfortunately and the plate of rice and beans is typical. This... More

El Dorado was very average. Tomato-ey tasting salsa, too much mix in the margaritas and not enough spice in the chicken enchiladas. Got the #16(chicken enchilada) and it doesn't even come with beans and rice. The service was fine but the overall experience was very average. Not impressed and probably wouldn't go again.
