Authentic mexican at a reasonable price.

Great Mexican food, defiantly authentic. (had some difficulty) with the language barrier with our waiter but after he took our order the food came out quickly. I would have to say authentic Mexican and was reasonably priced as well.

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!

El Loro is a favorite for Mexican cuisine. I just prefer sliced beef over ground beef so it could be much better indeed. Enchiladas are my favorite on the menu.

We decided to try El Loro based on the Trip Advisor reviews and unfortunately were quite disappointed. The restaurant was pleasant and the service was excellent, but the food was mediocre and disappointing. I had chimichangas, 1 beef and 1 chicken. The chicken tasted like it was boiled with no seasoning and the chimes are supposed to be deep fried... More

If you want a quick spot for lunch without eating in your car, head to El Loro. They know how to cater to the working crowd at lunch. Seating is usually right away, chips, salsa and ranch style dip follows right after. The menu is huge! Grab a burrito or enchiladas for the fastest meal. They'll deliver it fast and... More

The food is great and fast. Service has never been their strong suit. Take out is so fast but the food is always great. They have multiple locations and I find that they all have about the same service style.

Stopped in for dinner and ordered burritos-wow were they good. Super outdoor space weather permitting but nice inside as well. They have a good selection of margaritas and different sizes plus a pretty good selection of beer. I will be back

Had the chilli relleno with an enchilada. The enchilada was on the bland side. The atmosphere was pleasant. The servers very polite.

This isn’t the best Mexican restaurant you will ever visit but it is a very consistent “B” restaurant that deserves your patronage. The team here is very focused on serving good food quickly and at a great price. If you are passing through, or live around here, this is a place you need to visit.
