I love the food here. Nothing fancy. Just cooked to order burritos, tacos, quesadillas, etc. The tres leches cake may be the best in the area. I just wish they would spruce the place up. I felt bad because I asked one of the staff to wipe off our table for us only to realize the table wasn't dirty; it... More

This gem is tucked away on Route 24, just out of reach of Route 1. Completely worth seeking out. Aquilles is your gracious host and his big smile and excellent service will make you feel part of the family. First visit, I highly recommend getting 2 or 3 of the fish tacos. Lightly battered mahi with cabbage and white sauce.... More

We have been here 2-3 times - and will continue to go back- the cuisine is fresh- light- and a great balance. I love the PV burrito- chorizo and shrimp- nice crispy lettuce- and some salsa- I love their authentic red and green sauces- doesn't leave you feeling overly full just perfect portions. Just consistent solid cuisine- if you are... More

Choose shrimp or fish or both, deep fried and good value. I have had better Mexucan food but it was quick and affordable and not on the busy street.ngoid place to go if you are in a hurry

Here they specialize in seafood tacos, with Mahi tacos every day. Today there were also shrimp and chorizo. My only beef is corn tortillas, as I much prefer wheat. An open toppings bar holds Pico de Gallo, pickled onion, shredded cabbage and lettuce, and rotating salsas. There are also quesdadillas, etc as one might expect. Order at the counter and... More

My husband and I had a quick supper here. The atmosphere is very strip mall-ish. You order at the counter and your food is brought to you. There was a coupon online, and when I mentioned it to the man who took our order, he acted as though he did not know about it, but he still honored it (free... More

I really enjoy El Dorado. It is a Mexican restaurant that is different than the rest. My only hold back in giving five stars is due to the food being served on paper plates. That being said, I love their food and I eat hear about once per month. Try it... I think you'll enjoy it.

The title really sums it up here. There's a spot in mine and I'm sure many peoples hearts for Mexican-American food, and El Dorado certainly hits the note pretty well there. You won't find a creative menu or complicated dishes, just reasonably priced, basic, no frills Mexican inspired foods.
