Food was great and portions were huge. We were seated in an overflow room that was dark and lacking atmosphere.

Excellent food! And we have high 'San Diego Mexican food' standards ;). We had the Carne asada street tacos, mahi tacos, and Steak fajitas. They make the Guacamole fresh at your table and it was the best I've ever had! If you're looking for authentic Mexican food that's off the strip, this is the place!

Highest quality food: Organic & non-gmo! Meat is pasture raised, not factory-farm. Top-shelf Cadillac Margaritas are delicioso! Best Mexican food in Vegas.

I was hoping to love this place since I heard so much about it.
Service was horrible even though it wasn’t packed.
We waited almost 20 minutes to be acknowledged and another 20 to have our orders taken. Apparently “our” server was Taking a break.
The guacamole served table side was too salty. Still ate it though.
Our server “forgot” to place the order for my husbands main dish. My tacos al pastor were also salty and lord and behold my tamarind margarita was salty AF!
Id go back just to see if it was an off day.

I had a fabulous meal at El Dorado Cantina in Las Vegas. I saw the chef on Chopped and tracked down his restaurant. Mole sampler plate was to die for and the lime cured wild shrimp appetizer was fantastic as well. The staff were very friendly and took great care of me. I’ll be back soon!

Good a bit salty for my taste. Value was good. Server waa great. Unfortunately the hostess set us off with a bad tone when she couldn't find our confirmed reservation. When we showed her the confirmation she sat us in a table in the overflow waiting area. We complained and her comment was that we hadn't reserved a specific table. Her snotty, rude attitude wasnt appreciated

Wasn't happy with the service , specially when I took my friends for dinner because I love their food and bar service. Was disappointed with the service...wasn't a good impression for my friends for the first time they had dinner.

Food was good - especially the guacamole and appetizers. Jalapeño margaritas were also good. However the clientele was sketchy at best and this restaurant shares a wall with a GIANT strip club! (If you’re “lucky” you’ll even see some strippers in and out to grab some dinner!). And there are many other strip clubs/sex museums around the restaurant as well. I took clients here (they picked it because it was on many top celiac/gluten free lists) and was very embarrassed. My advice is to stay on the main strip (NOT Sammy Davis Jr Blvd) unless you need to grab a bite during some strip club hopping !!!!

Our first time there and our food was dry like it was sitting under a heat lamp for awhile. But the Fresca drinks were very good. We are still looking for a good place that represents California mex

I was really underwhelmed by this restaurant. I was so exited, because I heard it was the best Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas and the Chef was even on chopped, but even before I got there it was going down hill. First they do not mention its in strip row, and next to a strip club. 2cnd they took for ever to acknowledge you, and it was not even full. 3rd, they were slow. 4th the food was not that great, 5th the price was way too much for the food they gave you. The only thing that was decent was the margarita. The other good thing was that I got a free flan for my birthday and that was actually the best thing, if I go back it would be to get a flan to go, otherwise it was not worth the trip. This restaurant needs a serious update on the décor as well, sorry I did not like this place.

We found this place by googling family friendly Mexican restaurants in Las Vegas, and El Dorado Cantina was consistently at the top of the list. When we arrived, I was surprised to find that the restaurant is directly adjacent to a strip club, and started to doubt it's "family friendly" nature. But the reviews were all positive so we went inside and were pleased to find a very nice and warm atmosphere, and some delicious, authentic Mexican food. They even had crayons and colouring sheets with games and all the like, so you can tell they do cater to families. All around a great experience, would definitely recommend.

We had a great meal here. Margaritas were fabulous. They have a great tequila selection. The mole was good, guacamole very fresh. We had the mole sampler with 3 types - all different and all really good. They even had grilled chicken spicy lettuce wraps for our friend eating Paleo & she raved over how tasty they were.

This was our 4th time eating here! The food is amazing! The mole sampler was very educational. We love their bowls and tacos! Table side guacamole is a must. We always end up ordering at least 2 due to the fact that it’s that good; although it’s pretty heavy on the onion which they can reduce if you want. Sangria was tasty but their margaritas are just ok.
They had soccer of some TVs and some cheesy Mexican singer on other TVs, with the volume turned up really high.
Great food and decor, a bit lacking in embiance.

Food was very good, however the service was poor. We were seated at our table, and it was 15 minutes before our server came by, then another 15 minutes before he took our order. It was not extremely busy, so the was not really an excuse, so the other server roaming around, but never ours.

The Chips and salsa were very good, along with the entrees. Prices were kind of high for a Mexican restaurant, but the food was good.

Noise level was really loud, i think they may have to have the music really loud to drown out the music from the strip club next door, the share a building with a extremely large strip club. The lighting was really dim at the table and one of our party had to use their phone to shine on the menu to read it.

The Food was very good, but I would probably not go back due to the ambiance and location, but especially the service.

The best Mexican food I have ever had. My husband and I both ordered tacos. He ordered shrimp tacos, I ordered the vegetarian tacos and WOW! The flavors were unlike any other taco flavors we had before. His shrimp tacos had a whole different flavor than my vegetarian ones did. Sometimes when you order similar foods they taste basically the same just with an add on, but not here. The salsas were to die for! We talked about asking them for a jar to purchase and take home (we forgot at the end) but they were that good. Very reasonably priced! We visited on our first day in Vegas and wished we had more time to go back. If you have time please go! You won't regret it!
