Reviewed December 11, 2012

El Dorado in LaPlata, Maryland is a great restaurant with the most friendly staff. Never had anything I did 't like and the staff is always welcoming and attentive.

“Good not excellent”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Great service! Monday night was not busy, food was just good. Everything covered in cheese. Store bought taco shell not hand fried fresh. The chili relleno and the marg. were perfect. Everything else was salty.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Based on a recommendation from a local relative, we tried the Spanish dishes: they were delicious and more satisfying than any Mexican or Tex-Mex we have eaten in CA or TX. Competent and friendly waiter, white tablecloth, and well-prepared food. This is a hidden gem, we will return when in the area.

“Good food near the Port Tobacco Players theater.”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Good Mexica/Spanish food at reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere. Service can be a little slow at times, depending on how many staff took the day off.

“La Plata's Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

I read the previous reviews and took the plunge. What a wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent. Far beyond the standard Mexican fare. The Spanish dishes are superb. The restaurant was practically empty when we went, but the service was fabulous. I cannot urge everyone in the Washington Metro area enough to come and check out this place. I know everyone in our party will definitely return.
-Outstanding Chicken Quesadillas for an appetizer.
-Salmon stuffed with Crabmeat - delicious!!!
-Seafood Paella - to die for!!!!
-Chicken Breast stuffed with Spinach, Mushrooms, Green & Red Peppers - OMG
