Our dinner was so good as always.
Our waiter was super nice and was very energetic and recommended a lot of stuff to us which was nice.
He was very attentive and made us feel very welcome.
A++++++++ for customer service and food quality.
The nachos there are the best. It is so big and just delicious. I have had their fajitas and that is so good as well. The portabello fajita is the best i have had.
Thanks for being my go to place.

Had to wait forever for food and it came out cold. Didn't want to have to wait for them to heat it up and return it. Food was just ok. Way overpriced. And takes forvever - was there for 2 hours and it wasn't even that busy. Probably won't ever go back again.

excellent customer service, manager and server were nice, but food sucked! waste of money and time in vegas. it’s totally overrated!!! i went because of the “amazing reviews”... if you time is limited in vegas, you visit is already planned day by day and meal by meal (as i did), don’t go there....

Food was delicious! But did not like the location - right next to a strip club.
Glad they are opening a second location.
Wish it was on the strip!

I was super excited to eat here, we started with the chips and salsa. We got the salsa but had to wait on fresh chips which we weren’t mad about. Then we ordered and got the table size guacamole and shrimp To Quito’s was good. But after that everything was down hill. My mom ordered lettuce wraps, the chicken was dry and cold. My dad order the quesadilla with the chicken and said the same thing. My sister order the Al pastor tacos and didn’t eat but a bite. She said the same thing. I ordered the Filet mignon tacos and it was greasy and dry and Luke warm as if the meat was already cooked and just rewarmed up which is what I started to think about everyone’s food. For the prices we were expecting more for our money.

We set up reservations for our daughters 21st birthday here. They have us a private boot he in the back as requested and the service was great. We did have a few platters that came out very late after everyone’s else and a couple of things wrong with the orders but the great servers took care of it right away. The food was EXCELLENT as always Organic ingredients and fresh as can be. We will defiantly come back every time in Vegas. We highly recommend this place

THE VERY BEST in Mexican food in Las Vegas....Every award, commendation and mention is an understatement to the food.
Staff/team is well oiled and Xavier (GM) looks out for them, empowers and runs a great operation.

Food is good, but very expensive for what it is. Drinks are very expensive too, and not a generous pour. Shouldn't charge for 2nd basket of chips and salsa...especially when table is ordering dinner.

We chose this restaurant because of the unique variety of items on the menu. We started with the Imperial Shrimp which were very good. Then we had a Carnitas Burrito and Carnitas Enchiladas. Obviously we love carnitas, and these were very good. Both were large portions and were lunch the next day. We walked to the restaurant because it was only 2 blocks from our hotel. However, the street that it is on is rather deserted except for the traffic whizzing by. We were a bit uncomfortable with the neighborhood, so taking some form of transportation would be recommended. Otherwise, we loved the food here.

Only one bartender, drinks arrived after meal. Napkins, fork, and knife didn’t arrive until after we finished our meal. Good thing we were eating Tacos. Also, water didn’t arrive until after we were half way through our meal. Finally, we waited 30 min for a table even though we had a reservation. Food was great but the service was horrible. They need more waiting and bartending staff.

Bottom line: Overpriced, over-rated, bland and tacky

Pros: Food is inexpensive

Cons: The food is not tasty. The portions are huge. The margarita we got was dilute and overpriced. The restaurant shares a space with a "gentlemen's club".

Terrible terrible service!!! Our waiter had a terrible attitude and could not have been more rude. Every single time we go to El Dorado we always say the food is great and we should just order take out. Oh and don't order a jalapeno margarita... you pay for a shot of tequila, jalapenos and margarita upcharge=$19 for a drink. Insane. Also, don't expect them to accommodate you if you don't eat rice and beans. I asked for a side of vegetables with my chicken and was told no. Unacceptable!!!

We had an enjoyable pre-show meal at El Dorado! The staff, first and foremost, were phenomenal. They consistently went above and beyond for us - accommodating our reservation though we were a late arrival due to traffic, always keeping our drinks full, offering a smile and a laugh. They brought us a lovely complimentary dessert with a candle in it for my boyfriend in celebration of his birthday - and sang, of course! He loves being made a fuss over, so it was perfect. I had the Mahi tacos which were good and filling - but the shredded chicken nachos that my boyfriend ordered were hands down the best I've ever tasted. We will definitely return in the future!

You should know before you go, because we didn’t., it’s located beside (attached) to a gentleman’s club. “Interesting” crowd outside at night when you pull up. Having said that, now that you know you should go and do not leave without having the table side guacamole (and I have never liked guac)

El Dorado was a great surprise! The minute we walked in we were greeted by the friendliest staff who was on the top of their game! The manager Alex greeted us by name and sent me over for a pre dinner taste of tequila which was delicious! The table made guac was to die for and my meal was pure heaven... i had one filet mignon taco and one lobster taco! My husband loved his pulled chicken burrito! No question we will return! Best true Mexican food...

Don't let the strip club next door stop you from enjoying the excellent food at this wonderful restaurant. Fajitas and Mahi tacos were amazing. Chips are light and crisp and served with two salsas - both flavorful and fresh. The service was amazing.
