We were famished, but the possible places at the Montvale, NJ rest area on the Garden State Pkwy were totally unpalatable so we crossed the Tappan Zee and, JUST off Rte 9 we found th e El Dorado. It's the Platonic ideal of NY deli, complete with faux Art Deco lighting and clamshell seat backs (plus the typically epic-length menu).... More

Large menu with lots of options. The food is fair. I felt the menu was so large he waiter couldn't keep up the the selection. I ordered a fried chicken salad which was listed as a specialty salad but he didn't know whet it was yet it was clear the he wasn't new. Food was bad but wasn't really good... More

While visiting the area we ate here several times. Breakfasts were really good, coffee was good too. Large menu, friendly staff. Would return if in the area. There is an El Dorado West and we did not care for that one as much as this one.

Free parking! Looking for a place for lunch that offers free parking and tried my luck. Lots of seniors. Large menu and lots of desserts. The food was average...nothing to write home about. The service was ok. I'd go back due to close location and ease of parking...not so much for the food.

The diner has traditional diner fare as well as few extras. The service was good and friendly. I ate there three times and was always please. The beef dip sandwich was especially good. Conveniently located on Main Street with good parking and easy access.

I stopped in to pick up a couple of meals while staying across the street at the Hampton Inn. The food was very good and the place was clean. The service was quick. I really like that they deliver free.

We ate here two evenings during our stay so the food must be good! It was also reasonably priced. The first evening our waiter may have been new, service was extremely slow even though we told him we had a time constraint and had asked what would be the quicker choices. He seemed to be confused. The food however was... More

I met some colleagues for lunch and we weren't disappointed. I ordered an omelet with veggies. My friends ordered sandwiches. Everything was very good and the wait staff were nice. Prices are reasonable too. I'd definitely go back.
