Recently revisited this excellent restaurant and it again exceeded my expectations. Great food, reasonable prices and exceptional service. The owner greets you like you are his long lost brother and make you feel right at home. A great inexpensive casula Mexican meal.

True baja style tacos. Get the shrimp tacos with the shrimp grilled, unless you really prefer them fried. These are as good as the ones in southern california and baja in mexico.

We had such high hopes for a good meal, but were not impressed. We were not greeted when we entered, and had no idea if we were supposed to just sit down or wait to be seated. We figured out that we needed to order at the counter but there were no paper menus to look at, only the laminated... More

Let me start by saying that this place looks like a dump, but don't be fooled by that. My wife wanted fish tacos and said she saw good reviews for this place. When we walked through the door I thought to myself "this is where you wanted to eat, really?!" We both ordered the fish tacos. They brought out a... More

We found this place after shopping at the Outlets. What an amazing little restaurant. I'm not sure what was better...the service or the food! I got the chicken & pulled pork tacos. My fiancé got the shrimp & mahi mahi tacos. The tortillas are made from scratch and are delicious! This is sure to be our food stop after every... More

This place advertises "Best Fish Tacos" Truth! What they don't advertise is "Best Seafood Burritos" "Best Crab Quesadillas" "Best Fresh Salsa" also Truths. Don't be alarmed that this place has a strip mall feel to it. and is attached to what seems like a biker bar with an outside bar area. It's all good!

El Dorado is a hidden gem in Rehoboth. Just a hop off Route 1 on Route 24 you will find the best burritos in Delaware. I just had the Puerto Vallarta "burrito" grilled shrimp and choriz wrapped with guacamole romaine, chipotle sauce and poco de gallo. All their sauces is from scratch. Beats the chains hands down!

Great service, inexpensive, really good food, rice & beans, etc. this is not a fancy restaurant--more basic decor. Will go back.
