A solid Mexican restaurant. Typical Mexican menu but always good with friendly service. Tucked away in a detached strip from Greenbrier and just out-of-the-way enough to make sure there is never a wait.

El Loro is a very good Mexican place. They have a typical lunch menu, but the portions are large. They make fresh guacamole at the table. Service is prompt, prices are reasonable.

Have eaten here many times over the years. Better by far than most Mexican restaurants in the area. Try their chicken soup, too, and the table side prepared guacamole.

If you visit Chesapeake and dont intend to spend much money with good food then go to. You should order a guacamole handmade! best I've tried.
