There's Food for Everyone's Taste

If you have a big family group and don't know how to satisfy everyone's individual appetites, try the El Dorado Dine in Elmsford, where there's food for everyone's taste. We were spending the night at a nearby hotel right off the Thruway, near the Tappan Zee Bridge. In our family group we had... read more

The drinks are strong and the Chicken Cordon Bleu is to die for! Some would describe it as pricey, but you do get heaping platefuls of food!!!

This diner certainly has a warm feeling when you walk in. The food itself was very good. The staff was also very nice and helpful.

A typical diner: good food and service. Didn't bother trying anywhere else as they offered something for everyone.

Place was clean, service was very good and breakfast was tasty and affordable. The wait for service was not long neither was the wait for food. Restrooms were clean. Not a five star restaurant but I'd strongly recommend for a good vegetable. omlet

When you step into the diner you are seated right away and handed a book of choices. You can order breakfast at any time. I enjoyed the Ruben sandwich. I just wish the bread had been toasted. The island dressing was on the side. The portion was large for the money. A good place to stop for a quick meal.

We popped over here for a quick dinner while staying in Elmsford. Overall, not bad, not outstanding--a decent option. Decor and amhiance are nothing special, standard New York diner mode. We got a couple of glasses of red wine, it was acceptable. My dinner was their meat loaf; the meat loaf itself reminded me of high school cafeteria food, but... More

Stayed in Tarrytown for three nights at the Sheraton Tarrytown. Not wanting to pay the high prices at the hotel restaurant, I asked if there was a good old fashioned New York Diner nearby. The recommendation, The El Dorado. Despite the so-so comments here on Tripadvisor, I found the El Dorado to be everything I remembered about New York Diners.... More

This diner was convenient to our hotel located across the street. We stopped in for sandwiches and drinks. The server was okay. Food okay for a diner.
