We had a great time here on the 4th of July, excellant beer, and a lakeside seat for the Detroit Lakes fireworks.

“El Metate is now El Loro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

After reading the great reviews for El Metate, we wanted to eat there & found that it is now called El Loro. The service was friendly, the meals reasonably priced & portions were tasty & large. Our waitress said her husband was the cook & everything we asked for we received! We do not like beans & rice mixed in our burritos, so we requested that they put them on the side & we got what we asked. They have an extensive menu, a bar, & views of Detroit Lake. Nice to have a good Mexican restaurant across from Detroit Lakes!

“Great Mexican food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012 via mobile

Food was delicious! Chips/salsa were served right away. Rice had a seasoning on it that was so good. The kids fries also had a yummy seasoning on them. It is right across the street from Detroit lake. Great location!

“Best Mexican food in Minnesota”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

Extensive menu. We love Mexican and since moving here from Texas we have not found too many good Mexican restaurants. We really enjoyed our dinner here.

Really enjoyed the food here, and sangria, and that you can dock your boat and walk over for lunch.
