Seriously guys, this place has a buffet at lunch! You can put queso cheese on everything. I eat here about once per quarter only because I probably gain 3 lbs because of all the food I eat. This is a must try if you are in the area!

We were on vacation and wanted to eat some Mexican food, and saw their sign while passing through. Wasn't expecting much, but we were very happy at the end: Pros: - Fast and friendly service. - Good value considering options close by. - Good portion size. - Good chips and salsa. Cons: - Not a big con, but an interior... More

Our family of five enjoyed the lunch buffet tremendously. Although we all love Mexican food, we each have slightly different preferences. We each found a favorite food to enjoy. The buffet was plentiful, good and inexpensive. We'll definitely put this as a must-do on our next Charleston vacation.

We lived in SC for years and visited here at least once a month. The food is so good and the people are so sweet!!! My husband will say Man I could eat mexican, and I will say (jokingly, of course!) El Dorado? We live 12 hours away.

Stopped in here for an early dinner. Food came out quickly and was what we expected. Portions were good and the service was quick. Definitely want to come back and try the lunch buffet.

Great service, food and price is alright. The taste and food portion where great. The restaurant was very clean, family oriented, and the costumer service was excellent. I recommend visiting with the family or with friends. The place have a mini bar and lunch buffet.

I thought they had great authentic mexican foo, however, we sat outside and it took them a LONG time to take care of us. We did not get chips and salsa until our meal came. If this had been different, I would have given them a 5 star review.

The rice and beans tasted authentic, but how hard is that to do? The chili colorado, on the other hand was bland and boring. Too much tomato and very little Mexican flavor. The meat was little chunks, most of which were entirely too chewy or gristled, indicating a cheap cut of beef. Given the good reviews by locals, I, a... More
