Authentic Mexican Food!

This is my go to restaurant for mexican food! The Tamales are my favorite, but you can be satisfied with anything on the menu. I have brought numerous guests there, and no one has left without complete satisfaction.

We came across this restaurant from a hotel's recommendation while on a college tour with my daughter. Five years later as my daughter was now graduating, we continued to frequent this restaurant whenever visiting her. The food is delicious, the service is friendly, the price is appropriate, the drinks are delicious, and they often have a mariachi band playing. Great... More

El Loro is a basic Mexican style dinner a a fair price. They do have the best Carnitas around town. My wife likes their steak tacos. All around a good value, and pretty nice house Margarita's. Muy Bueno!

We've eaten here for years. The food has always been good and the price isn't bad either. Try the pork Carnitas, they are delicious if you want a big portion of pork roast. I used to live in San Antonio so haven't really found anything in MN that compares to the Mexican and Tex/Mex found down there, but El Loro... More

I hadn't been to this chain before and was very happy with it. I had a late lunch there and the prices were reasonable. Both the cheese dip appetizer and the chicken fajitas were delicious and more than enough for two to share. I agree that this this place has the perfect combination of authentic Mexican food with a nod... More

So I have started to go to this El Loro about once a month I enjoy it so much. The chips and salsa are basically why I go here, but there is also a great atmosphere for meeting up with friends.

Fajitas and Burritos! Best balance of traditional and American tastes. They have lasted the test of time and have many regulars like myself. Also in Savage ( the original).

My wife and I were going back home after a shopping experience and it was late. We could not decide where to eat as it was later in the evening and steak at that time of night was out of the question. So we decided to stop at the El Loro a place we have eaten at often. There were... More
