Second time at Eldorado Taco and we really enjoyed the casual dining. Cocktails are amazing and every plates we tried were delicious. I recommend Eldorado for a fun and casual evening without compromising in the food.

This is the best taco place in town. Fantastic service (like really friendly but unobtrusive) and delicious food! We come here often and it's our go-to for delicious food!

There was someone to greet us on our way in and on our way out. The food was delicious. Our server Dasha was so attentive and was able to answer any questions we had about the menu. It was a great experience from beginning to end.

The nachos were good with the chicken. The chicken tacos were also good. The pork belly tacos were not good, the pork belly was undercooked, under seasoned and was very elastic. The pork belly should’ve been seared until it caramelized to release all the flavours. Shrimp lacked spices as did the pork. The drinks were okay and the service was fantastic. It was very pricey for one star food. I recommend the nachos with chicken if you go here.

Great food and taco variety - guacamole was also a solid entree. Drink menu was amazing specially if you like to try different types of margaritas and tasteful cocktails. We had Terry as our server and he provided prompt service, great conversation and an enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend

The waiter was inattentive. He did not make any suggestions after indicating I didn’t like anything hot. We waited for him to stop chatting with other servers without his mask on in the restaurant to get the bill.

The tacos were very good. The drinks were great too.

Service was poor, the waiter was new…but he must have apologized 100x for the delay. There was a ‘rush’ at 730 and it took a very very long time. The restaurant was only about 70% full. I’m a very patient person, but it was crazy that it took so long to make a taco. Most of the taco in ingredients are already cooked (pulled chicken, pulled pork, etc).

Hopefully they will be able to get more staff as I believe this place has great food. Unfortunately I won’t be going back anytime soo.

Tacos are great, good flavour and fresh ingredients (ancho chicken and carne asada). Started off with nachos as a an appetizer - great value and fully loaded. The pineapple spicy marg was a little too sweet for my liking but still a great mix of flavour. Overall great food. The service was on point with multiple check-ins.

Very expensive, $15 for plain nachos with avocado, not even salsa or some kind of crema/sour cream, over priced tiny tacos, not even lime on the side to add in, poor service overall in addition to tasty but nowhere near reasonably priced food.

Delicious food! The flavours were very well defined and balanced, nothing overwhelmed anything else in the taco. I especially loved the Tempura Avocado taco. Who knew? Our order taker and servers were excellent, just the right amount of presence. Its a bit loud so not a great place for a quiet date, but for an energetic experience and smashing food, this is a solid choice. My friends and I loved it all.
