It's hard when you have eaten authentic hispanic food and then you go here and there is no taste, it is very bland.It's like a watered down version of hispanic food.

The only time it isn't happy hour is 6-8pm. Fairly standard Mexican fare, but the flavors were good, some of the better shredded chicken I've had; friendly and clean. The Eagan site is a little larger and has outside seating.

We took a chance on El Loro and we liked it. Good chips and salsa, nice interior design and a good menu. We came in for lunch on a Sunday and enjoyed it. Decent prices and a good amount of food. My only complaint was the service was slower than typical Mexican restaurants, which may be a good thing. The do have a small bar. It's too bad this place get lost in this strip mall. It's a gem. I recommend it.

We received really poor service at El Azteca in Apple Valley so we started going here instead. The service is far superior and the food has better quality. Unlike El Azteca, everything here does not taste the same. This is my kids favorite Mexican restaraunt.
