This place was awesome! The margarita was one of the best I've had in Vegas. The food was great - fresh and delicious. I was a bit disappointed in the size of the lobster tacos - two tiny tacos for $32, but they were delicious. And the chips were way too salty even though they were good and the salsas were excellent. We'll be back to try more!

I would go back for the food and the friendly service. The music was so loud you could not carry on a conversation with the person next to you, had to ask the wait staff if they could turn the music down so we could carry on a conversation. They did turn the music down for which I was grateful for. The food was excellent and I will be going back.

We had an excellent dinner at El Dorado Cantina. The traditional chicken and steak fajitas were sizzling; perfectly cooked with rice, beans and guacamole. The carnitas, a signature dish were delicately spiced and slow cooked so the meat fell apart with the touch of your fork. The margaritas were truly” to die for”.

The shrimp appetizer was over cooked and tuff. The meal lacked real flavor and taste. The chips and salsa were great. House margarita were good.

I’ve always had a great experience at this place. The food is great, the ambiance is fantastic and the service is always on pointe. This time we had a 7p reservation and didn’t get seated until 7:30p, which in my opinion is too long of a wait when you have a reservation. However, this has never happened before so I’m keeping the rating at five stars. ;)

The location is good. The food not too much. Overly priced for what you get.
The rice is amazing and so is the staff but the carne asada is overly seasoned and 2 days later we are still feeling the effects of it. You can get the same food and same quality for much much much cheaper somewhere else. Salsa was good, chip where just ok.
Overall I would not recommend.

Birthday surprise for my bestfriend, everything worked out great! Although my day setting this up was so hectic, the staff’s “working together” type of service is impeccable! I was so grateful for their help to make my night of this surprise run a lot smoother. Thank you guys.

The whole Staff have always been very helpful, personable, respectful and kind in every way. These are people who actually enjoy working their job and make my money worth it.

Food: fresh and hot! Just the way I like it!
Service: 👍🏻💯

I like that this location doesn’t blast their music too loud, gives us an opportunity to be able to converse to eachother across the table without having to yell.

Overall, I’m always a happy regular 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻💕

Just having a date night with my wife. Actually went here when they first opened this location and wasn’t impressed. A friend of mine went there and raved about it so I decided to give it a second chance. I was pleasantly surprised how it changed. Food and service was excellent. Glad I gave it another try. We will be dining here often.

Waitress disappeared for about 10 minutes. I could understand if it was busy but we were having an early dinner so it was not crowded at all. Bar staff had to finally bring the drinks we ordered due to her lack of involvement. Carne Asada tacos were dry and lacked flavor. Overall a poor experience. Hate it, as we typically enjoy coming to this location.

Margarita Mondays draw a big crowd. The drinks were good, but a bit syrupy. Guacamole was well prepared table side, bu unfortunately the chips snd salsa hadn’t arrived. The queso fundido was good, but not as magical as last time.

Reservation was for 8pm at 8:50pm we still hadn’t been seated with no explanation. She spoke to the manager he said it’s Friday we are our best. What’s the point of a reservation. Left and went to Kona Grill which was great.
