Good

Easy to find a nice atmosphere in the place. Bathrooms are very very clean which is something I always look for. Clean bathroom usually means a clean kitchen. Chips were just ok . Some were stale. The salsa is vwry tomato saucey and kinda bland. We had it some hoy sauce to it and it tasted much... read more

We ordered the burrito special and enchiladas. The place was busy, but service was fast. Great place to stop and eat.

Here for New Year's Eve 2015. We had the special dinner and shrimp chimichanga. Every bite was absolutely delicious and authentic Mexican food. Our only regret was that we ran out of room to eat all our food. I had a small margarita that was delicious and we were treated to shots of tequila. Wonderful - we will definitely be... More

Good atmosphere, good food, very friendly service. Can be a wait at times, especially on Friday and Saturday, so plan ahead. Relatively inexpensive.

I was surprised to get not just the usual red salsa, but also quest blanca. Both were very tasty. The service was quick and attentive with refills promptly offered.

Been there multiple times always order the fish tacos. Fish planks instead of chopped, Nice. Every table gets chips salsa an creme fresh, 3 sizes of margaritas, had better but also had worse. Unless special order they're pulled from machine. Lots of locals an big groups. Recommended? Sure.

Had a very pleasant lunch. Would have rated higher but felt the food was a little bland. Restaurant was very busy - go early for lunch. The sauces with the complimentary chips were excellent. Service was good and fast. Great business lunch location.

I have been going to El Loro since it opened many years ago. In the past year or so, with each visit the quality of the food, including taste, temperature, texture, has significantly declined. If this is your first visit you will walk away thinking average to below average. If you are from a SW USA location you will wish... More

Give me a place where the parking lot is full of locals & I'm there! El Loro is an outstanding restaurant putting out real deal dishes you find made in Mexican homes daily. Top quality served quickly & professionally for a very reasonable price. If you're into REAL Mexican food you have to go here!
