Order a Texas Margarita or two and the rest of your dining experience will be GREAT no matter what happens! Good margs for sure. Love their chips and white sauce. Not even sure what that is but the cheese sauce is good. Food is good...More

I used to go to El Loro 3 - 4 times a month when they first opened. Now I don't go anymore. Their service and their food is substandard. Definitely not what it used to be. I will not be going back.

I don't know if there are new owners/managers or what happened. The last time we visited, the service was subpar; the host slammed our menus on the table and wasn't very friendly, we had to ask our server for refills multiple times before receiving them,...More
