Excellent food, as usual. There seemed to be only one server, and we never got refills on drinks because he was making guacamole at another table. That would be my only complaint, but I will always go back again and again for the delicious food. I love the burritos.

Thought I’d would be good time to have team outing of 10 on cinco de Mayo. The service was so poor and management handle very poorly. Took 45 minutes to get everyone drink order, over 1 hour to place food order. 40 minutes to deliver food to half of the people. Sad thing was it wasn’t overly crowded and the food we did get was good.

You know it's good food when the Executive Chef, Paco, comes out of the kitchen to personally thank each table for come in and ask them how their meal is. The portions are large, the food is fresh and delicious and you can tell its cooked with love! In my opinion, it's the best Mexican food in Las Vegas and I've tried many! It will be my go to Mexican food place from now on! They also have a huge gluten free menu which is the reason we went to begin with. If you've got Celiac's or a gluten sensitivity, El Dorado Cantina wont let you down!

Delicious food, but I wasn't satisfied with what I ordered, which was the cilantro garlic shrimp, nearly a $30 plate, once the server brought me the plate i just simply looked at it and saw rice and five pieces of shrimp, I do not recommend ordering this plate because it's not worth $30 but everything else is awesome I've been here at least five times I'm a local my family and friends love this place

I have to say I was skeptical when we pulled up and it was a 24hr restaurant next to a gentlemans club. However, we tried this on our vacation to Las Vegas, and it was so delicious we came back before we left for more!! The tacos are fresh & delicious as are the yummy desserts!!! The staff was very friendly and we just loved the ambiance. A must if your in Vegas!!!

Service staff is attentive and very friendly.

The food is sickeningly awful and the ambiance constantly reminds you that you’re right next to a basketball arena sized strip club.

And... it’s expensive as hell. I won’t be returning.

El Dorado still has the best Mexican food I've ever had. But the service and nickel-and-diming has completely ruined the experience. I highly recommend ordering the food for pick up, so that you can enjoy the incredible cooking they have to offer while avoiding the abominably slow and combative service. And you won't get upsold on $1 charges for "extras" like having sauce on your burrito, that you don't find out about until the bill comes (by which point you'll do anything to end the meal and get out of there). Try the food. Avoid the service

Great food, great service. Fresh ingredients. Guacamole was the best I have ever had. Great atmosphere. Next door is the "World's Largest Gentleman's Club", Sapphire. Don't let that deter you from wonderful Mexican food. Couples, families.....all were enjoying the wonderful food and atmosphere. Apparently, the dad owns the gentleman's club and the son owns the restaurant. Restaurant has been featured on the Cooking Channel. Wait staff were on it....never missed a beat with service. Will definitely return. Open 24 hours a day.....

We chose this restaurant due to the high Yelp reviews.
I wont comment on the location, but there's plenty of parking. The interior is classy and upscale.
The staff were attentive and super nice!
We had 2 "cadillac" margaritas and my with upgraded hers with some tequila that they were pushing. These were average and not particularly strong.
Based upon the recommendation, we had the chicken in creamy chipotle sauce ($25). The dish was very tasty and a massive portion. They put the tortillas (warm) in a basket with a cloth napkin rather than the plastic container often seen elsewhere. We also ordered a single taco al pastor ($4.5). This was average and could have used some additional accent toppings, such as cilantro or pepitas or ...anything really. It was tasty but I expected something a little more. Granted it's listed as a "street taco."
The staff was amazing!
The upgraded margarita was a bit of a shock- it was $26! So for two people, 2 drinks, 1 taco and 1 meal + tax/tip= $92. Not a value place. Maybe nothing in Las Vegas is?!
Overall nice place, great staff, ok food and drink but too pricey for me to return.

The food and service was amazing. Definitely one of the best Mexican restaurants in Las Vegas. Just a heads up though, if you don't answer their phone call to confirm your reservation, they give you zero time to call them back and do not leave you a message. They just go ahead and cancel the reservation immediately. Thankfully I called right back after I hung up the phone call I was on and they rebooked my reservation. Just a little annoying that they leave no message and just cancel immediately.

The service was super poor. Waiter didn’t check on us not one time when we got our food. Didn’t refil our drinks or give us our check we had to go ask for it as well as to go boxes. The food was good but idk if it was worth the price because the service was not good. Unfortunately we wouldn’t recommend to go there because for me service is very important. And for my husband much more because he owns several businesses.

We have been going here for a couple of years now. They had a change of management, and for a blink the food got worse, but now we can say it's even better than before the management change. They are still organic non-gmo, and Chef Paco is still running the kitchen. So, all is well, and it's a great healthy pesticide free restaurant option that not just raw veggies. :) Thanks!
