I went first time in the Mexican "all you can it" restaurant. I found enough food which I liked and could get full. What I didn't like was the missing of any labels of the names of the different offers. So, I cannot say now what I had. I recommend the management to put labels with the names. They be... More

The food was great! The service was unacceptable. They messed up the drink orders, and did not bring half of my order. I had to ask 3 different servers before receiving the remainder of my meal. I spoke to the manager and explained the situation asking for some money off, and he said he could take $1.00 off the bill... More

As I walked in for lunch I was never greeted by anyone. I noticed the buffet and grabbed a plate and begain browsing. They have just opened 30 minutes prior so all should be placed out fresh. I kid you not all food was not at correct temps and the chicken was reheated from another day. I pointed this out... More

This was our first trip to the restaurant. The food was good & the service was excellent. They have buffet, but we bought from the menu this time, very good.

I live in walking distance from El Dorado and go there about 2 times a month. The past few times that I have been there the service has been awful! The last time 5/17 was the worst. There were like 3 servers in 1 section of the restaurant but I had to end up asking the bus boy to get... More

My husband and I are huge fans of Mexican food and have tried so many different restaurants. This one by far is my favorite. The service was fantastic - our waiter Raul was professional, pleasant and well mannered. The wait staff continuously made sure to fill our salsa bowl was full and that we always had chips. The salsa is... More

We have tried most all Mexican restaurants in or near Charleston. But we continue coming back here. The manager always greets us when he sees us. The buffet is fantastic with items found only in Mexico not an American buffet! Which we appreciate. Genuine flavors. There is also a menu to order from for those that desire.

As two of our group of four where nursing colds, we just wanted something simple, inexpensive and spicy enough to be a decongestant. To our pleasant surprise our dinner proved to be among the better Tex-Mex meals I've enjoyed. The chips were perfectly fresh; the salsa nicely hot; the margaritas very good. Service was quick and attentive and we all... More
