Best food around town. The burritos Mexicanos is by far the best burrito in The twin cities. Beats any California burrito

We love El Loro, one of our fall-back restaurants when we want a good, quick, reasonably priced Mexican dinner. Once again they succeeded in meeting their own standards and ours. Our waiter, Felipe was friendly, courteous and quick with any request or just to check on us. I think the tortilla Chips are house made, and the white sauce that... More

There were 6 of us traveling the area for business and stopped at the hotel next door. We chose to dine at El Loro because no one was enthused about driving to go for supper. The atmosphere was pleasant but nothing special. The staff was very friendly/helpful. The food (keep in mind that I'm not a regular at Mexican restaurants)... More

We arrived in Eagan for a local event later in the evening. We were staying at the new Holiday Inn Express and this restaurant is mere yards from that hotel. We enjoyed the 8p-10p (closing) happy hour with discounted margaritas and 1/2 price apps. The food was of good quality and the service was quick and attentive, even for 9:30p.

Ordered the lunch special #25 (enchiladas, rice and pureed beans) along with two others in our party. We were guests and the owner of the company we were meeting with suggested this location and paid for it. Lunch was good although the restaurant quite empty at about 1:30pm when we arrived. Service was great, maybe due to low guest count,... More
