At first, we were hesitant to eat here because we like Tex-Mex! But, the food was absolutely delicious! The service was fast and friendly! If you order the large margarita, don't drive home! It is a fishbowl! But, oh so good!

Being from Colorado I know a thing or 2 of mexican food. El Dorado does a great job of providing an authentic experience with "Rancheras" (mexican music) playing as you enter a restaurant full of Mexican decor. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming but...More
