Better than I was expecting

I thought this was going to be another Mexican joint. It is in many ways but the big difference is the food is much better. The cocktails are pricey and but they do the job right! The food everyone loved and I would definitely go back again. I wouldn't drive out of my way to seek out this place... read more

Service was fast, efficient and very friendly. The menu is huge and the variety is incredible so there truly is something for everyone so this place is sure to please all palettes. The fajitas taco salad was the best I've ever eaten. Others at our table raved about their selections and were equally pleased with their meals. The margaritas were... More

Lunch is a perfect time to go, even if you're in a hurry. The food is great and comes out very fast. The waiters at lunch seem to realize that most people have a time limit for their lunch so they give you the bill shortly after your food arrives. You pay at the front so when you're ready to...

Loved our time at this restaurant and food was good, not great though as I would of liked to of tasted a bit more spices for flavour not heat. Staff are friendly and helpful. Decor is nice but not fancy. Restaurant is in a strip mall and does not look like much on the outside so its fitting with the... More

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 substitution... 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.
