Got the table side guacamole! It is amazing! I was not enamored but the rest of the food. Was very over priced...but hey it is Vegas! It is right next to a gentleman’s club which was odd. They share a building. The wait staff was friendly but came off as kind pushy to get other stuff. Almost worked us like a car dealer.

Food is okay, nothing special. The service isn’t bad either, I just felt the food was overpriced. They do offer locals 25% off on Mondays so that’s a plus but their Margaritas are 15 and up.... and the margarita glasses are just an average size. The music is very energetic, which was my favorite part. Overall, this place is average.

Excellent food.

Really liked the shrimp enchiladas with the added poblano sauce on top. I would definitely go here again. Fresh Guacamole was really good table side.

This was one of the few places that had a good selection of vegetarian food....and it was INCREDIBLE! Delicious vegan options, amazing tableside guacamole, and lovely service. The only negative is the location...which is off the strip and shares a parking lot with a strip club. If you can get past that (which I can)...it's worth the walk/Lyft/Uber there. The food is incredible.

Hi, my reservation was at 7:00 pm., and me and my guests had to wait; within a few minutes I had to check with the hostess again. It's no nice not knowing when to get sat especially since there was a reservation made. Everything else was fantastic.

Corey was our server he was also the bartender I was greeted immediately upon entering by a lovely hostess and seated. Then water and chips with salsa were brought at the same time by different people and my house margarita was on its way because Corey popped over right away to say hello and make sure drinks were first priority. We had table side guacamole which was perfection and the fajita bowl which we chose the recommended steak that was seasoned so flavorful I’m grateful Corey advised of such. The service was tremendous making certain we had plenty of water, chips and everything we could possibly need. The vibe was awesome as always and I had just the best experience. Thank you so much for such a great lunch! El dorado this location continues to be my long standing favorite spot and it’s dining experiences like this that is all the reasons why. :)

Their tabel side guacamole is to die for. The steak fajitas are always a go to favorite. My partner had the fried fish tacos and said they were "Amazing". Thier devils margaritas is a must on a hot summers day. Overall this intimate restaurant serves up some of Vegas' best Mexican food.

Originally from California, the wait was ridiculous, we were seated and it took 17 min to get a waiter (no exaggeration), once our order was taken we stated we didn’t want water, the server and host were visibly irritated by this. Nevertheless, the food wasn’t bad, cold, but tasty. The service was horrible. Won’t be back.

Server was toooooo over the top rushed??? He forgot the customary Chips & Salsa, which we had to ask for and his entire approach was one of SUPER CHARGED HURRIED.

Food is getting a bit "under the heat lamp" to long. Or, not as freshly prepared as in the early days.
This is not a complaint, but really something that mgmt. should address, if interested in my thoughts.

Our server, Tyler, was an amazing person. He made sure everything for my wife and I was special. His presence made our dining experience go to 11. He was fun to talk with and he had great suggestions on what we should eat. The bartender Tarra was great as well. She came out to our table to make sure the drink I ordered was just right to my liking. Everything about the experience at El Dorado Cantina - Las Vegas Strip was above and beyond. I highly recommend anyone and everyone to come here. (And dress nice)

I showed up in time for my reso and had to wait for what ended up being 30 minutes to get seated so we went to the bar to wait. I think they must only be seating so many tables at a time because of COVID. The female bartender who’s zodiac sign is cancer and makes really good prickly pear margaritas was awesome and make killer margs. There was a dark skinned male host who delivered my drink and and a few mins before that he had come up to ask if I was waiting for a table and I said yes I have a reso and we r waiting to get seated. Anyway later when he dropped off my margarita I asked him if I could bug him for a glass of tap water ( since I was thirsty after waiting at the bar ) and wanted to drink water before my margarita lol but he forgot and didn’t bring me the water, I somehow already had a feeling he wasn’t going to bring me the water from the moment I asked I think he probably thought it was beneath him or something. I would understand if it was packed and he was overwhelmed but he just clearly did not want to be bothered.
