The restaurant is next to a strip club. It made my dining experience super uncomfortable. The food is over price too. The whole ambiance of the restaurant is weird energy

I was told about this place by an Uber driver, I wish I could remember which one so i could go back and give him a tip. This place is AMAZING! The food is ridiculously fresh and flavorful. You MUST HAVE the tableside guacamole and a pitcher of margaritas. Although i'm sure the cocktails are equally as awesome. I had the enchilada trio and my buddy had the Carne Asada dinner. The shrimp enchilada was my favorite but all three were great. All fish is wild caught, nothing farm raised. The steak was marinated (24 hours) and was outstanding! I cannot wait to come back to Las Vegas w/ my mom so i can bring her here. The service is just as amazing as the food. Veronica was our service, Tyler pitched in and gave us some good recommendations as well. I was really impressed w/the bartender who saw me looking around for Veronica and came from behind the bar to ask if i needed anything. I did and he was kind enough to bring it to us. This is now on my list of must visit places when i'm in town. I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone! Oh...Flan for dessert! do it!

Loved our dining experience at El Dorado Cantina. Food was amazing! We had the carne asada fajitas, steak enchiladas and tableside guacamole. The chips and salsa was so good we wish we did not order the guacamole. My only complaint is that they could not make frozen margaritas because their machine was broken. Wouldn't you think this would be a priority to replace for a Mexican restaurant? Their on the rocks house margaritas were excellent we just prefer frozen. Overall great for my 33rd birthday in Vegas!

Great server! The food was fairly oily even though it was advertised to be healthy to us. The sauces and tortillas were good! The ambience reminded me of a 90s gentleman club. It was nice place to go on a Sunday since all the restaurants on the strip were to busy to host due to the 50% capacity rules of COVID.

Much busier than last few times there (congrats). Margarita was ridiculously too strong, tasted like medicine.
Fundido appetizer used to be great, but now it has veggies on top, which just ruins it (in my opinion).
Overall good, and we love this place, just not as good as it usually is.

El Dorado is by far our favorite local eatery. The quality of the food and drinks are top notch. As usual our last visit did not disappoint. We went to celebrate my oldest one's b-day. So we grabbed a pitch of Prickely Pear margaritas and started our evening. The only experience that was not up to par was the service. We did wait a while to get our drinks and waited a while to get our order's taken. But other than that the service was great. We were sat in the back room with a few other large parties where is was quiet at first, very pleasant and a group of 10 were sat and they were a bit loud for a bit. But once they settled down it was quite nice.

We always recommend El Dorado to our family and friends who come and visit Vegas.

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.

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.
