I was looking forward to visiting Eldorado Grill for the first time for my birthday dinner and was disappointed. I had heard good things about the restaurant. We did not order appetizers as we didn't want to spoil our meal. I ordered the smoky chicken enchiladas. I thought I was ordering real enchiladas and would have a decent sized meal.... More

Waited over an hour to be seated , wait staff extremely rude - and to top it off, my wife found a hair melted into her entree. If that is what you are into great- last time for me. If I could give a negative rating I would F-

Based on the reviews we visited here for the first time with high expectations. What we got was decent but not quite measuring up. The place was very busy for a Monday night. We were seated after a 15 minute wait but then waited another 15 minutes before a server stopped by. Food was decent. My tamale appetizer was a... More

Everything the reviews say is true - we showed up at 11:30am on a Sunday and were told we could be seated AROUND 1:30 PM. What?!? Luckily there were seats at the bar - I think I actually sat across from one of the previous reviewers which is weird... but anyway! Bartenders did do great serving us, I didn't get... More

BEST BEEF TENDERLOIN EVER!!! What made it so good was the bleu cheese compound butter. So creamy and a perfect match for the perfectly medium/rare grilled entree. A Gluten Sensitive person has LOTS of options, including their wonderful corn chowder.

I really like their brunch menu, portions are big, and flavor is great. It is pretty packed, so be prepared for a little wait. Many drink options, it seems the bloody mary is very popular. Chicken biscuit sandwich is my favorite.

We were told we had to wait about an hour as it was restaurant week. They sat us sooner. We had chips and salsa, which was great. Fish tacos were some of the best ever. Enchiladas were also fantastic. Service was very good and we enjoyed our evening. We'll be back!!!!

Not sure what is going on at Eldorado Grill. We've been going since they opened, yet our most recent meals there have not been great. The first poor experience we brought our grown kids - my food was actually burned. We decided to give it another try a whole year later for my birthday (I'm from TX and miss TX... More

Food was delicious, and creatively prepared. The adobo pork and the seafood burrito were especially good. The pre-meal chips can be had with a pineapple-habanero salsa that is really good. The tequila list is extensive and impressive. Best margarita I've had since moving away from Santa Fe. Eat here and you will not be disappointed.

Nice setting but the acoustics were horrible, could not hear conversation at our own table of four people. Friendly staff. Impressive menu although rather fancy and a bit pricey, food quality OK but I am not asking for their recipes. It does have parking right next to door. Careful of the rough, cracked sidewalk just outside the door.

Thank Gail S

Voted Best Brunch in Madison! With classic favorites like Chicken Fried Chicken and Baby Back Ribs, southwestern flavor is wrangled into every item on our menu. Feeling adventurous? Try one of our Platos Mexicanos such as Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas.
