Pretty good Mexican food

There is a great selection of Mexican food with excellently seasoned meats/fish for the tacos and burritos.

We ate here while staying close by. I had read the tripadvisor reviews and thought I had found another gem. However, eating here did not live up to our expectations. The food was definitely decent. Guac was good as were the chips. My fish tacos were very good and probably the best thing we are. The beans and rice were... More

We tried El Dorado based on the reviews and are we glad we did! We all had the shrimp tacos. They are so fresh and light. The shrimp were glad fries and so tasty. The salsa bar was also so fresh. No atmosphere, but the service was friendly and fast. This will now be a regular on our list when... More

Seriously. Authentic, delicious, friendly. Great food. Achilles is so much fun. Don't be put off by the ambiance when you walk in the door. It more than makes up for it with the fabulous food. Highly recommended!

Located in a small strip mall, you might drive right past and miss it, but it is worth finding! Not much in ambience but by far the best tacos we've had anywhere in the country. Eat in or take out. Prices are much better than other taco places in the area, too!

This place has been here for a number of years. Serves real and I mean real Mexican food. Shrimp tacos are the best!

Found this hidden gem years ago and we stop there every time we are in town. Aquiles always greets you warmly with his friendly smile and the food never disappoints. Today he recommended the lobster burrito and although I typically order the amazing puerto vallarta, the lobster was magnificent. Ceviche is incredible as well. See you again soon, my friend.

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
