We were seated quickly with our reservation. The waitress was nice and offered good suggestions for food and drinks. The food was pretty bland and lacked excitement. We ordered thr Al Pastor tacos and the chicken quesadilla. I give them 2 stars because my husband didn't like the food and only ate 1 of the 4 quesadillas, we sent it back and they still charged us for it.

Got skeptical about coming here at first because our uber driver said how he normally don’t here people come here, but I’m glad we did! Got our table quickly and the food was pretty good. I personally had the shrimp burrito and it was very good! Im a huge salsa fan and the green salsa that was brought out with the chips was so good, I wish I took some for later.

It was a hard pill to swallow to see my once favorite restaurant not be up to par. Service took forever. I have never had to wait so long for drinks, the food came out as if it was sitting under the light.

The food was fine but in my opinion not worth the money. The service was absolutely terrible. We had made a reservation for 7:30. When we arrived we were put on another waitlist because they were running behind with reservations; however, we were also told they allowed walk-ins to be seated before those who had reservations so there is no point in making a reservation. The staff was rude and in no hurry to take care of anyone or anything even with a huge line of people waiting outside. Tables sat open for at least 30 minutes with no one sat while staff was walking around talking to each other. When we were finally seated at the bar after ~45 minutes of waiting. Their online menu would not pull up on anyone’s phone so we were stuck waiting another 10 minutes to be helped with three bartenders at the bar and only 5 other guests seated at a large bar area. Our food and drinks came promptly but unfortunately we were not impressed. This place came highly recommended by several people but I wouldn’t waste your time.

This place came highly recommended and the food did not disappoint. From the tableside guac to the burritos to the soups and salads, everything was very tasty, had the right amount of spice, and everyone enjoyed it. The only downside is really that for $20, a burrito should come with SOMETHING - rice? beans? a salad? It felt bare and too expensive even though it was delicious. A side scoop or rice or guac or beans would've made all the difference. But I'd eat here again!

The waiter did not help us until after about 20 minutes. The restaurant was less than half full. Then as we already knew what we wanted she said, “the credit card machine is down!” and she walked off... The chips and water we had were great. Just very unorganized and very unprofessional.

I researched this restaurant before making reservations which had great reviews. The food was very fresh and delicious. Our server, Ariel, was superb! Very friendly, happy, and knowledgeable about the menu. The margaritas were delicious. The only reason I rated a 4 for value because I upgraded my margaritas which cost $21 & drank 2 and didn't even get a slight buzz.

The food and service was amazing. Ivan rocked as our server. I hadn’t realized they had a table side guac service until after we had nearly finished our meals. The margaritas were okay but the nachos and fajitas and enchiladas we had were great. Don't let the location fool you. We will visit this restaurant again when we are in Vegas.

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.
