The food and drinks were Amazing!! We had the jalapeño cucumber margaritas, guacamole, and the shrimp enchiladas. Oh my gosh it was yummy. One of the best Mexican food places around. The service was excellent all the way around. The staff was nonstop busy and attentive.

The food is amazingly good. Fresh organic ingredients and you can tell. The table side guacamole and the aguachiles are must haves. We followed with crispy fish snd pulled chicken street tacos. Service was great. Oh, and the Cadillac Margaritas were delicious 😇

would have been nice to know that this was next door to a strip club, clientele is a bit on the sketchy side.

Will not be back here

The food is incredible. Really well sourced, much is organic, fresh seafood, excellent preparation and presentation.
This visit the wait staff was less engaging and less attentive than in previous visits so our enjoyment level went down :(

We were the 2nd group to be in the restaurant at 10am. We got lucky that our server was able to really interact with us and help us out with our orders. Around 11am it started to pick up and we noticed how understaffed they were and how the service went down hill (for the other parties) . We noticed that service was so slow that 2 groups ended up walking out. There was a lack of communication from staff members as to what menu items were unavailable. So yes, my personal experience was amazing. But also got to see the downside of this place by observing what transpired after.

We were looking for quality Mexican food and we found the El Dorado Cantina online. We decided to leave our hotel and give it a shot. We arrive and found a cool and clean location that was more than happy to serve us. our server was outstanding as was the food. I will certainly return on our next trip.

Not impressive. Not sure why the great rating. The food was average. The wait staff was great. The hostess was crabby and rude. She needs to cover up her boobs. Not a great first impression at all.

You can't go wrong with anything in their menu. So delicious! On this visit I had the Chile Relleno with black beans and rice. It was practically perfection. Some of the friendliest servers and very customer oriented management. One of my favorite spots in Vegas

It was my birthday and I heard this place had great Mexican eats and the menu looked promising. Unfortunately, the food was not
up to par. Not me nor my guests finished our food. The only good thing was the table side guacamole which was good, not great. On the upside the drinks are very good. Very disappointed for my
Bday dinner.

My wife and I were attending the Star Trek Convention and wanted some great Mexican food. We got there and were quickly seated. Our server was right there with a drink suggestion which was spot on. The margaritas were fantastic and mixed properly. We had the street taco platter. The amount of food was great, but the actual taste/quality was lacking. The meats were dried out and tough, with very little flavor. We only saw our server again when it was time to pay the bill. We won’t be going back.

I’ve been here many times before. I like the opentable option because with a baby I can tell them to place us someplace convenient with a stroller. The front desk hosts were great and showed us where we needed to go.

We sat down, the gentleman who brings water came promptly and then took away an extra place setting and let. He was able to fill our waters up at least twice before I got up to ask the host where our server was, we at that point had been sitting for over 10 minutes. The table in the middle of the dining room didn’t seem to have the same problem. We sat on the right side when you walk into the restaurant. By the time the server came to the table he asked whether we needed a moment but we had been waiting so long we knew exactly what we wanted.

At first, I thought it was just us but probably right after we ordered there was another couple who sat in the booth next to us. They had the same problem and almost walked out of the restaurant because no one had come to ask them what they wanted. It was strange because the restaurant wasn’t particularly busy, and there was plenty of empty tables and open space.

We ordered a table top guacamole, shrimp enchiladas, and vegan nachos, which, somehow the nachos didn’t come with the vegan sour cream. It’s not that it was extra it’s apart of the compilation. The music was great, the food was decent (my friend somewhat liked the nachos but for the cheese), and it even took a while to get the reciept and pay. Overall it was okay, I’ve been here before and I was disappointed that my friends from out of town didn’t have the same great experience due to the service.

Always wanted to try this place and so glad I did. Authentic flavors of Mexico without all the grease. Family friendly despite being adjacent to the world’s largest gentlemen’s club. Great service, fair prices just wish the drinks were more affordable.

Outstanding fresh food, generous portions, and an extensive tequila menu. Strongly recommend and will be coming back on every future visit to Vegas.
A 24 hour restaurant shouldn't be able to maintain this level of quality but they manage it here!

Always a great atmosphere with a lively crowd. Food is delicious I’ve never had a bad thing there in my several visits but I must remind everybody that portions there are extremely generous so you might wanna order less than you would normally think to. All in all a great spot for good Mexican food in Las Vegas

Extremely slow service , way understaffed but waiters do their best to keep up and not their fault on the quality of the food or how the restaurant is managed. Would definitely not recommend.
They use the same red ir Greek sauce on all of their dishes which is a lazy way to cook.
