El Dorado was packed the night I visited, but there was only a short wait and I was seated quickly. Salsa and chips came instantly, and my drink order was taken before I even sat down! One caution: the margaritas come in several sizes, so be sure to specify which you want! Mine was unexpectedly huge...but it was yummy! I... More

El Dorado restaurant was recommeded by our motel. The place is plain and has about ten to twelve tables. The food was over the top great! Chips and salsa were on the table almost immediately. The three employees I saw were like a well oiled machine with everyone doing their job efficiently. None of the customers were sitting and waiting.... More

El Dorado is a Mexican Restaurant, not TexMex. We had driven by it the day before, but thought about how many locals appeared to be there and decided to give it a try the next day at lunch. We are glad we did... the locals, as always, know the best things. We were served promptly. Enchiladas were rolled uniformly (not... More

We almost passed on this restaurant because the exterior is a little run down. There were a lot of cars and there is a great view of the lake, so we went in. The restaurant was clean and the service was good. Warm chips and homemade salsa were brought to the table right away. We were there in time to... More

Service was great, prices and quantity was good, chips and salsa were great, but my burrito's and my wife's enchiladas were pretty lame.Didn't even finish either dinner.

Friendly, efficient staff. Priced very reasonable. Casual wear. Easy to find on Lake Shore Drive. They offer specials daily on food and drinks. The Texas Burrito had grilled steak and grilled shrimp that was very delicious. They use a white cheese sauce on top of the burritos that I have never had before. The chips and salsa were excellent and... More

I had eaten here before and really enjoyed the food. This last time i tried the Philly Cheese Steak Burrito, what a pleasant surprise! The thing is delicious and more than enough for lunch by itself.

I have tried this place several times. Loving Mexican food I keep hoping it was just my menu choices, but as it turns out it wasn't. The staff is friendly enough but food is way to salty.

The weather was nice and our group of 4 sat outdoors! It was quieter next to the high way than inside, but there wasn't much traffic and the restaurant was busy! The Arroz con Pollo is excellent, I always have enough leftovers for a full second meal the next day after having lots of food at the restaurant! Homemade chips... More
