South Texas isn't loaded with haute cuisine; it's heavy on the Tex Mex. That stated, you can't go wrong with El Dorado. Standard, ample fare that won't disappoint the hungry patron and the prices are very affordable. No margaritas, however. Beer and wine only at this time. Had I found a good margarita there, I think an additional star would... More

Food and service are consistently excellent. We try to eat at least one meal here every time we are in the Valley.

We stayed within walking distance at the Alamo Inn Bed & Breakfast, so we ate here the first night. Had Mexican food which was very good - different from what they have in New Mexico, but tasty. Great sweetened tea to stave off the heat. No, the food wasn't hot/spicy except for the green sauce, which was hot and good.... More

I always liked going to el dorado until recently that i found a cockroach in my caldo de pollo. It was so gross and it completely spoiled my appetite.

Across the street from the Alamo Inn. Good value, many choices, shrimp always seem to be great, friendly staff. Some folks seem to eat there every day.

One of our favorite local Mexican Style restaurants. Always good service, friendly staff and tasty, timely entrees. No liquor so don't expect a Marguerita with your meal, but good selection of domestic and South of the border beers.

Recommended by our B&B host, then selected independently as the place to get together by our friends who are staying close-by for the winter. Good call by both. My taco salad was tasty, the lettuce was fresh, and the taco bowl just made. Service was friendly and timely, certainly not pushy (see my review of our lunch in Port Isabel).... More

When we stayed in Alamo for a week of birding in the Rio Grande Valley, my friend and I had several dinenrs at this restaurant down the street from our B&B. Very reasonable prices, good typical Mexican food, excellent and friendly service.
