This time I had chicken & pork tacos. I would have liked to get the new lobster burrito but it has gluten. They have corn tortillas for the tacos. They said they'd check with the owner (not there at the time) to see if they could make 2 lobster tacos instead of one lobster burrito. The chicken was in small... More

Aquiles, the owner is the heart and soul of this local favorite! Open all year round ( except for a few weeks in the winter and closed on Sunday's in the winter months). Made to order tacos, burritos, salads and more. His margaritas are legendary! And now he offers Negro Medelo on tap. Mexican speciality sodas are also available. His... More

My wife and I eat at El Dorado fairy regularly and we always enjoy our food. The owner, who is almost always there taking the orders, is a very friendly host and he treats everyone with lots of respect and enthusiasm. My wife loves the shrimp tacos and I love, love, love the seafood burritos with my absolute favorite being... More

We stopped in on a Thursday in March on the recommendation of a friend. The guy who waited on us I believe was the owner, incredibly friendly and helpful. On his recommendation we had fish tacos and a fish & scallop burrito. Along with some ice cold Modelo. My husband is already planning on how many to pick up on... More

My 1st visit. It's on Rt. 24 just off DE Rt.1--go beyond the McDonald's entrance to get there. It's a very laid back, lit up, clean place with an extremely friendly staff. I had 2 tacos and the optional beans and rice. They have a salsa bar so you can load your tacos or burritos or whatever with different veggies... More

The guy behind the counter, who I'm assuming was the owner, was extremely friendly and informative. The food was OK. I was a little disappointed by the small size of the burrito for the price and most of the taste was the cabbage inside.

Not your cheese based Mexican Joint with bucket sized margaritas. This is the real deal, family friendly! The sauce bar is the best. Eat here people!

We really liked the fish tacos and the shrimp tacos. We ordered the grilled rather than battered and it was tasty. Tortilla is corn and not great. Lots of choices on salsa bar. Hole in the wall place that we will go back to.

Ordered a tofu veggie burrito. It was pretty good. Simple but fresh and tasty. They also have a fresh salsa bar and sodas made in Mexico. The decor was very cute and the food arrived quickly. Not crazy busy or noisy.

Wow, I was really surprised to see the special of the day was soft crab burrito. I love soft shell crabs, but never have been offered it in a burrito and of course, I opted for it. I was not disappointed as there was actually some crab meat in that soft shell! The platter came with rice and beans on... More
