Being from Colorado I know a thing or 2 of mexican food. El Dorado does a great job of providing an authentic experience with "Rancheras" (mexican music) playing as you enter a restaurant full of Mexican decor. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming but the food made the experience. The minute you walk in you can smell the aromas... More

When questioned,,the server had an answer and was very nice,,,,,,but, just know that what you get might not be described on menu. The... More

The huevos con chorizo lunch special was great! The salsa and chips were fresh as well. I'd definitely come back!

My husband and I ate here the other night and everything was absolutely GREAT! Friendly, helpful service, nice clean atmosphere, fast delicious food. I highly recommend the guacamole starter dip which is creamy and smooth. His steak was perfectly marbled and had a superb char-grilled taste. This is my TOP favorite authentic Mexican food choice in Auburn!

While visiting our grandson he requested we go here for lunch. I had the taco salad which was ok. I have had better and I have had worst. The service was good but the food was just average. Our grandson liked it and that is all that counted.

I noticed in a lot of the reviews that folks complained the food was not spicy enough. They need to understand that this is a Mexican restaurant and NOT Tex Mex. Mexican restaurants in the states and Mexico do not have the spice level in the foods, but have hot sauces available if you wish to make the meal spicier.... More

The food is not something that I would go out of my way to eat. It was just standard beans, rice, chips and salsa. I ordered flautas and they were rolled loosely and not too remarkable. We had the special margaritas they were good but again not in the top 20% of great Mexican food places I have eaten.

Thank Luluzzz
