El Mexicano.

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... read 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.

From the moment you walk in the owner is there smiling and greeting you like family. He truly is excited you have come to dine with him. The food is not only reasonably priced, it is absolutely delicious! We always make a point of having dinner here when in Rehoboth. A must visit!

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.
