My daughter really wanted Mexican and we loved our choice. The food was excellent and the service was very good. We never waited for anything as they use multiple servers to wait on you. I had the steak tacos, others had chicken enchiladas, cheese enchiladas...More

Great comfort food for a Texan living in Carolina. Beef enchiladas with guacamole, beans and rice. It is close to the interstate so well worth the extra mile to get here after skiing at Winter Park.

Nice little Mexican Restaurant that is off the beaten path, but still only a couple of blocks from the main drag of Washington. The service is friendly and the wait is never long. My daughter always has this on her list of places to visit...More

Authentic tastes will be found here in this place on the edge of a neighborhood. We stop by every time we get a chance. Nice place inside and outside. Even better service from fun waitstaff folks and reliably good food and beverages.

I love this place! Great food and very fair prices. I live within walking distance and make the walk quite often. Great chips and salsa, awesome shrimp tacos but my favorite is probably the chicken burrito smothered in green chili.

This restaurant has been operating in Golden for years. Many people love it. I believe it is a good place for breakfast dishes like Huevos Rancheros. For dinner and lunch the food is pretty bland and offers no special tastes. Much like most Mexican restaurants...More

Soooo good.just went for 1st time. I can't wait to go back. Chile relleno oh man, divine! Ate on the little patio. It's kind of hidden in a little neighborhood which is even better. Service was great and accommodating.

Our extended family enjoyed their dinner at El Dorado in Golden. We ordered fajitas, carne asada, chimichangas, burritos and fish tacos. For dessert, we had the fried ice cream and sopapillas. Everything was tasty. The house margaritas were on par with what you usually get...More
