I didn't think I had an addictive personality is until I tried this food.

In all honesty, the shrimp burrito is just about the best damn burrito I've ever had. It's laid back, authentic, and really just a great place to grab some Mexican food. Who needs ambiance when you have amazing food? Not this girl.

We ate at El Dorado last night. The tacos are great. We had the fish tacos - their specialty - chicken and spicy pork. The owner is very welcoming and friendly. It's not fancy but who cares when the food is this good!

The El Dorado Restaurant is located in an small strip mall off Coastal Hwy. There's no doubt in my mind that if it was on Coastal Hwy. you'd never get in the door. The food is absolutely fantastic. We tried 3 tacos, 1 fish (mahi), 1 shrimp and 1 grilled steak. All 3 were the best tacos I've ever had.... More

Some friends recommended this place and they were right. It's just great, the atmosphere is very very Chico and the food is good. I like the fact you can ask for the heat level you want so you won't make a trip to the hospital. There is only one problem...you have to wait for ages...and that's not cool. I don't... More

Whenever we come to the beach, we always eat at El Dorado at least once. The food is amazing; the Cancun burrito is our absolute favorite. There are so many scallops in it! The owner is always smiling and makes you feel like he genuinely appreciates his business and loves what he does. At our last visit, the place got... More

We eat here frequently. The food is fresh and delicious! Achilles, the owner, and the people who work there make you feel like family when you walk in the door. When you're in the Rehoboth, Rt. 24 area the restaurant is near Nuttle lumber. Make sure to stop in. You won't be sorry! Very relaxed dress code.

El Dorado is a small restaurant, you order at the counter and your meal is brought to your table. Not many frills, but the decor is bright and cheerful, and the people who work there are very friendly and helpful with explaining menu selections. The choices are mostly tacos, with some burrito as well, and sides. A salsa bar has... More

We stop at this place on our way in and out of Rehoboth, and it's always delicious. Get the fish or shrimp tacos, add some fresh salsa from the salsa bar, and go to town. Don't miss out just because this place is off the beaten path.
