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

The last two times I've visited this location I have become sick. I'm staying away for a long time. It's busy, loud and for average tasting food that really surprises me. There is no other Mexican food chain that I can compare this to...love Chipotle!!

This is our go-to regular places whenever we start craving this highly addictive Mexican food which also happens to be cheap. I have even compared it with Chipotle and feel El loro rates higher for it's mouthwatering flavors, excellent chips and salsa and it's authentic Mexican taste. But be warned, it is loaded with heavy cheese and tomato sauces, so... More

This restaurant was very busy on a Saturday afternoon and finding parking can be a challenge, but the food was excellent. The chips/salsa/dip are very good and we have to restrain ourselves from overeating chips before our meal was served. The chicken taco salad was exceptional. It was loaded with delicious shredded meat; more meat than lettuce! Portions are generous... More

Well, so I went to this place because it was close to my hotel. I have to admit, the reviews were mixed on here, so I wasn't sure, but I didn't want to drive too far. I was pleasantly surprised. I have to say that the positive reviews were right and so were the mixed ones (in a way).... So,... More

My friends and my family refer to this place as "Chips and Salsa" because that is the whole reason to come to this restaurant. It is so good i think about it for days. I am not a big fan of the other food. I usually just get the rice and beans to go with my chips and salsa. One... More
