El Loro is good stuff! I love that they don't use yellow cheese, it's all white. Queso Blanco, with tortillas is fantastic as an app. Anything you order however will be really good. The service is good. I take my kids and they can order in Spanish and they get really good responses from the wait staff with good Spanish... More

We have eaten at El Loro a number of times. The service is always good and the food is exceptional. Prices are reasonable and we usually have a second meal off our leftovers. Having tried a number of dishes, we have always been pleased regardless of the choice

We have been going here since it opened. (10-12 yrs. ago). Try the Special Dinner, it has some of everything, Margaritas are huge and they carry Mexican sodas. They have a bar area with a few tv's as well if you want a liquid lunch. Lots of coupons in local papers and on internet to save $$

I really want to love this place because it's close by. It does have some good points, such as the unique white sauce they serve along with chips and salsa. (The chips, however, aren't as good as some you can buy in the grocery store.) Their fajitas are very good, as are the chicken chimichangas. Other menu items are forgettable... More

we really had bad service the last time we were here, was my first time going there, loud kids crying, staff was slow and made several ordering mistakes, food was ok but average, I'm not willing to go back and give it a second try.

I eat here whenever I am in the area. The food is wonderful, the service is super quick and super friendly. The Burritos Mexicanos is my favorite. That white dip that they serve with the chips is so addicting!
