The staff actually speak Spanish and the decor gives that Mexican feel. The food is good, there are lots of options, they serve a dip and salsa with warm chips complimentary prior to you meal and it's always good.

I love Mexican food, and El Lori is my favorite spot in the northern suburbs. The fajitas for two are wonderful, they put a nice char on the meats and veggies. Portions are generous. Quesadillas are great too. Fresh homemade salsa , ranch and chips come out as soon as you are seated...delicious. Service is fast and efficient, we have... More

Hostess and waiter not very friendly or welcoming, a bit run down, kind of dirty - could use some basic repairs around the place. Food was only just OK. Fajita meat had big chunks of fat in it, shrimp was over cook and hard, chicken was dried out, not many veggies. Our waiter took our plate before we were through... More

I heard such good things about El Loro & was excited to try it with a few friends. The restaurant is clean & well maintained. We went on a Saturday night around 8pm & it wasn't busy at all. We had an male waiter & from the start, he was very rude. He rushed us while we were ordering &... More

Fast friendly service. They have a large selection and the prices won't break the bank. I've never walked out of there hungry. Actually full I can't eat it all and the food tastes great.

On a search for a good restaurant close to home, this one takes the cake! We have been in here enough times now that we are greeted with a friendly smile of recognition. The margaritas are strong, the nachos are cheap and plenty filling. No matter how busy the parking lot looks we are always seated promptly and receive great... More

The service was not acceptable. Other reviews mention the food comes out fast, that is true. Our waitress only came once to our table just to take the order. She never once again stopped to ask how is everything or to ask if we needed refills. She did stop to drop the bill and run. The food was not up... More

My family frequently visits El Loro. They've been one of our go-to's if we're in the mood for something quick and delicious. It seems like a family run place, but I can't confirm that. All I know is that most of the staff has been there a decade or more and they rarely make a mistake. The drink glasses are... More
