Found a hair in my quesadilla. Told manager. Was told it didn't come from anyone there. Won't go back.

El Loro had something for everyone. I got the seafood nachos and had enough for one or two more meals afterward! Two friends we ate with have larger appetites and finished their entrees but complained of overeating....
