Cute, hidden place! Definitely a good spot for lunch. The guacamole is always made fresh, and you get a good sized portion of it! Recently tried the Sincronizadas with beef tips, and it was delicious.

Really enjoyed our dinner. Plenty of food for all. I wish I had ordered extra chips. Margaritas were a tad overpriced, but good. Definitely will return.

The cheese dip has a very nice consistency! I also ordered a ACP, and it was delicious.. I will be back soon!

The experience was ok, I tried the fajita burrito. I was expecting what I've had elsewhere, but it was not the same. Not that it was bad, but certainly wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Seemed like unlimited chips and salsa, which was good.

Went around 5p on a Wednesday...not busy around this time. Attentive staff and speedy service. 2.99 margaritas on Wednesdays and they were delicious!

I really enjoy this Mexican restaurant. I've been there multiple times, everytime for lunch. I mainly get the bean burrito and cheese enchilada with rice. The food is decent but I feel like it could taste better, so I'm deducting a star for that. The chips and salsa are good. Service is good too. Overall great place to eat for lunch (and presumably dinner).

Friendly and fast staff. Everything I get from there has been good so far. But my go to dish, which is so yummy, has got to be those chimis.

This our go-to for Mexican cuisine. The food is awesome, as is the staff. We have a favorite table, and we almost always get it. My personal favorites are fish tacos, fajitas Hawaiian, and chimichangas. Last time I tried the El Dorado dinner, beef tips in a sauce with beans, rice and a guacamole salad. I may have to add it to my list of favorites!
