The enchiladas did not have much flavor but were ok. I was there for a late lunch and only one other customer there and staff seem disinterested and meal took quite a while.

The food is good but is pretty much the same as most other Mexican restaurants. Prices are reasonable. The chips and salsa are good.

Best mexican food in the twin cities. Nothing fancy, just great service & great food. Living in the southwest for 30 years, I can say the food is nothing short of authentic mexican food. A GEM to have in the suburbs of Eagan!

The food selection was great, the margaritas were very good and the service was also good. We got our food fast and it was nice and hot. Great place for a quick sit down meal

The food I ordered had red sauce on it and it was very bland. The service was good. The best part of the meal was playing Pokemon at the table, there is a Pokey stop a the restaurant.

We decided to stop here on our way home from a trip up north and I'm glad we did. Service was good and the food was great. Plus it was all reasonably priced. I had one of the best Chili Rellenos I've ever had here. We will Definitely be returning on our future visits to the cities.

We visited El Loro for supper and we're very pleased. The food was great and the portions were huge. Able to feed family of 6 under $60 no one left hungry and all enjoyed the great food.

Best food around town. The burritos Mexicanos is by far the best burrito in The twin cities. Beats any California burrito
