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 $$

Fast service. Good attention to refills, the food was hot, fresh and delicious! I highly recommend the fajitas for two. A very good dining experience!

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!

This restaurant has wonderful Mexican food. Good size portions and easy on the wallet prices. The salsa is really good. Sometimes it is hard to communicate--so just smile and point to the menu.

This place does have a bright atmosphere, okay if you are looking for average "Tex-Mex" fare. Nothing spectacular, we have been here a few times because it was in the neighborhood. Frankly, I would rather take a drive for tastier, more authentic Mexican food. They serve the one of the worst renditions of Carnitas I have ever had, fatty, greasy... More
