Tried out the place after scooping up a groupon. Absolutely terrible experience. "tableside guac" was prepared in the kitchen and brought out in a bowl and quarter sized chunks of the avocado skin were in it. The menu price for three tiny tacos was $15. Half of the restaurant is sectioned off with the lights shut off. Ceiling tiles have... More

Tried this restaurant 3 times. The good was not good and the service was horrible. My husband got a steak and he ordered it medium rare and it came out burnt. My order came out to be not even what I ordered. A friend's son ordered a pizza and it came out frozen. They acted like there was nothing wrong.

We went here because we had a Groupon to use, and it was quite possibly some of the worst Mexican food we've ever had. I cannot believe they are still in business. It was bland and just horrible food. Needless to say, we did not ask for a to go box for the leftovers. Eat at your own risk.

Food was awesome, Caesar Salad Sun Dried Tomatoes awesome! Service fast and friendly. Red salsa has a spicy kick! Great price 15% military discount! We hope they add a southwest soup to menu. Quiet music and news channels on TV. Read the menu on Genesis/History of real Caesar Salad, be surprised!

I had heard good things about the Virginia Beach location so I was excited to try the Cedar Road ETL. Despite excellent, attentive service, we left feeling disappointed and dissatisfied. The restaurant decor goes beyond rustic and authentic to something like dark and dirty. Cobwebs in the corners of the window by our table and serving plates that showed some... More

If you are looking for a restaurant specializing in Mexican food that is clean, has authentic Mexican food, and friendly service then you must eat here. Best guacamole I have ever had - way better than Chipotle :)!

I am a very picky eater so when I heard about El Taco Loco, I was skeptical. Well, I can tell you, I am NO longer a skeptic!! The food is amazing. I love fajitas and so far, theirs are the best across 2 cities. My 2 year old likes their quesadillas and she is often HARD to please!! They... More
