We dine at El Dorados at least a few times a year and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food or the service. The food is always hot, fresh and delicious, and the waitstaff has always been friendly and prompt!

I come here every time I am in Ashland or Hurley. It's by far some of the best Mexican I have ever had! The salsa is great,and they have your food ready in minutes. The price is fare for the portions as well. The view of Lake Superior is also wonderful!

Great service, friendly staff. The food is always fresh, hot, and fast. I have never been disappointed with El Dorado. Can not wait for the one in Ironwood to reopen.

We loved the El Eldorado in Ironwood but it is closed now. We have to drive 35 miles miles for Mexican now.

We decided to eat here after our go-to Ironwood restaurant was closed for a private party. The restaurant is very clean and brightly lit. The menu is extensive with a little something for everyone to choose from. Our family ordered a wide variety of items, from a giant burrito, to a taco/enchilada combo, to an enchilada plate, to a grilled... More

We were introduced to this little place by a friend and have been back several times now. The food is superb, the service is quick, and everyone is really friendly.

El Dorado was highly anticipated, as Ironwood residents greatly appreciated the original location 40 miles away in Ashland, WI. They finally got approval from Lansing to open in 2011, and were granted a liquor license in spring 2012. I do not drink alcohol, so no comment on the margaritas and daquaris available, but other diners seem to enjoy them, along... More
