We arrived for our reservation & the restaurant was closed. We waited about 15 minutes & they still didn't open. We tried to call but there was no answer.

Two things I tried to order that said they were GS I was then told that they actually weren't.... One because the sauce had gluten and the other because of seasonings. Label things appropriately!!!!

One of my favorite places to eat in Madison.
The atmosphere is to my liking with a very good bar displaying an extensive range of bottled spirits.
The Margaritas are some of the best in the city and it is hard to only have one. I like he fact that they can be made with a variety of ingredients.
I have always had good food during a visit. I especially like the Fajitas and the Blackened Catfish. The latter is one of the best dishes in Madison in my estimation.

I had high expectations given prior experiences and the price point, and this visit was just ok. Food was fine (very dry brisket) and service passable - weird given there were very few diners. Not sure I'll go back.

We had dinner out on their covered patio. I had the seafood enchiladas and my husband had the friend chicken, and both were delicious. Portion sizes were so generous that we got several meals out of our dinner. Our server was very attentive. Would highly recommend.

One of the best places we have eaten. Tequila tasting and margaritas were awesome! Food was fantastic from the fajitas to the cornbread to the pulled pork. Atmosphere was cozy and quaint. Will be back next time we visit Madison!!!

I had the chopped salad. The greens were fresh and good, romaine and not out of a abox. It contained all the vegetables listed and they had grilled the corn so it was nicely browned.. Good salad dressing.

My companion had the slow roasted baby back ribs. The portion was generous and they were tender and smoky flavored.

The waitress was friendly and efficient.

The restaurant is in my neighborhood and I will go back.

We wanted to eat outside and the outside area is actually in a tented area with walls and ceiling. It was kind of dingy and dirty in there with a carpet that looked like it had never been vacuumed. Our server was very friendly and did a nice job. We found a hair in the salsa which kind of turned us off to the whole experience. We've been there several times before and had much more positive experiences.

I love Eldorado Grill, so I hate to say anything bad about them. The pandemic killed their menu. It is down to one page and is kind of sad. No fruit puree margaritas right now. I will go back, but will wait a while. Hopefully things improve.

So happy to have Eldorado Grill back in business! Their TexMex is the best! And the Margaritas are AMAZING. It’s a scaled down menu from “pre-Covid” days but everything there is wonderful. Welcome back! We’ve missed you!!

Excellent food, tasty, fresh, well prepared, great portions. We have always enjoyed El Dorado Grill, but usually it is very loud and difficult to carry on a conversation. Of course we prefer it was as full of customers as usual, but fewer customers during the pandemic made this the perfect time to enjoy a quiet meal!

We love this place! It's frequently been our Friday night margarita and dinner place. We hadn't been there in 4 months and were so glad to be back. Dining on the screened in porch was comfortable, enjoyable and felt safe.

This was our first venture out to a restaurant in over 3 months. Eldorado Grill is one of our favorites and we were so happy to get a chance to return. The spacing between the tables was excellent and provided enough room to feel safe. The Margaritas were excellent as usual and the food was excellent. We had the Pulled Pork sandwiches, fried pickles and green chile onion rings. Soooo good. Also, we had the incredible chips and salsa which is always a "must have". Our server was very conscious of making sure we were completely satisfied with the whole dining experience. A big thank you to our server and the whole Eldorado team,

Dill pickle coins were nothing but grease. Inedible. Fried chicken sandwich extremely mushy and tasteless. No lime wedges in the margaritas. Poor value because the food was horrible.

We were seated immediately in the dining room. Reservation was for bar seating so I was glad to sit in the dining area. Waitress was attentive & friendly. Excellent salsa & guacamole which was served ahead of our order as I requested. Best part of my meal was the vegetable omelet, best omelet I’ve ever had. Was a special, but should be a regular on the menu.

This was our first time dining here and would not sit in the bar area again. It was very loud and the seating was so close that we literally had to move our table so the person next to us could get out from the booth seating. The food was excellent as was the margarita. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was served quickly and hot! We will definitely be back but will choose a week night, not a Saturday and reserve a table in the main dining area.
