Excellent and freshly prepared, need a downtown Lewes or Rehob location!

Very clean, love the fish tacos and sauces! Owner normally there to welcome you. Best if eaten fresh there as some of the food doesn't travel well.

This place is exceptional. The owner is very friendly and makes you feel like home. His recommendations were fish and Shrimp tacos, and they were fresh and really good. The deserts were really yummy as well.. Highly recommended. Chubby approved.. We will definitely go back when we are in the area..

My friend needs to have gluten free meals. No problem here! The fish tacos were voted the BEST in DE & I agree. Extremely accomadating & friendly staff. The "sauce" bar has some of the best I've ever tasted. A must try.

The fish tacos here are the bomb. My husband had his first ever fish taco here and it was so good he bought one of the El Dorado t-shirts. We visit every year.

El Dorado offers many varieties of Tacos and other Mexican delights. The tacos are very delicious, everyone enjoyed the many varieties. Portions are a bit small. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is OK. Give El Dorado a try, you will not be disappointed.

Found this on a local search for a quick stop on the way back from the beach. The best fish and shrimp Tacos we every had!! The fish is very, very lightly breaded mahi-mahi and oh so fresh and tasted great! The shrimp cooked to perfection, and also tasted wonderful. Can't wait to stop here again!!!

We had a couple of friends in from town and decided to take them to El Dorado to see what the fuss is about. Upon arrival we were greeted with a very friendly, "Hello". The guy taking orders behind the counter introduced himself as Wayne and gave us a tour of the menu. We ordered the Guacamole to start with... More

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
