Super Salt Attack!

There were a few patrons but not a lot of customers there on the evening we stopped. The cook maybe did not realize that there was super amounts of salt in the chicken enchilada dish I had, it was so much that I could not finish it. When I mentioned it to the server, there was no comment. No... read more

One of our favorite Mexican restaurants with great food and EXCELLENT service. They refill your sodas constantly and get people in and out the door very quickly.

We had a delicious lunch at El Loro. It is not exactly like like the food one would find in Mexico, but by American standards, I thought it was very good. I had the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, and my husband had the fish tacos. Portions were generous, service was very prompt and friendly; prices were reasonable.

If you have the choice, pick the Burnsville location. The food is better and the atmosphere is better.

Had dinner with the wife and decided to try El Loro, seems to be a large restaurant with lots of seating, we arrived on a Saturday around 5:30, so getting there a bit early has it's advantages or disadvantages, the receptionist seated us immediately, they brought complimentary chips with red salsa and a white salsa, it was a different taste...

This is as good as any in the cities. Good, fast food. Decent prices. Nice staff. I would go back. Look for coupons.

Had dinner there last night. We Hadn't been there for a while and was very disappointed. Burritos Rancheros was dry and lacked seasoning and spice. The Margaritas were once the best in the cities. We could not get a frozen one last night and the blended one was very ordinary. The staff used to be neatly dressed in matching shirts... More

We had dinner at El Loro I Eagan. We were pleasantly surprised that the food was so good. I had the steak Taco Nuevos and they were outstanding. My wife's cheese and beef enchiladas were every bit as good. The Mexican rice was among the best I have ever had. Everything tasted so fresh with just the right amount of... More

Impressed with my first visit to this chain. Many menu options at moderate prices. Since our stop was close to closing time we selected an appetizer and drinks. The nachos with meat was generously portioned and super tasty with fresh ingredients. Well worth the trial run.

It was a busy Friday night when we arrived, but were seated very quickly. The service was fast and the food arrived just as quick. Everything was fantastic and my youngest said it was the best taco he ever had. I had the El Loro special and it was great.it was also a generous portion of food as was everyone's.... More
