We have had a El Loro near us for many years ,but suddenly all the tenants where out of the strip mall. There is one in Bloomington and one in Eagan. We have to travel a little farther but the Eagan location has consistently had excellent service and the food is always good. We haven't been to the Bloomington location... More

I think maybe I caught these guys on a bad night. I came here because it was close to my hotel and had some good ratings. I ordered the chicken chorizo and to be honest, it was very average. The service wasn't the greatest either, it was very hard to get anyone's attention for soda refills. I am not very... More

Good dinner, had an enchilada and tamale rice and beans. And to wash it down a Pacifico. Not a bad place to eat.

The enchiladas did not have much flavor but were ok. I was there for a late lunch and only one other customer there and staff seem disinterested and meal took quite a while.

The food is good but is pretty much the same as most other Mexican restaurants. Prices are reasonable. The chips and salsa are good. The service is generally good, but servers could be a little more attentive and faster at coming to take your order and bringing you the check. The place is small and has a problem with no... More

Best mexican food in the twin cities. Nothing fancy, just great service & great food. Living in the southwest for 30 years, I can say the food is nothing short of authentic mexican food. A GEM to have in the suburbs of Eagan!

The food selection was great, the margaritas were very good and the service was also good. We got our food fast and it was nice and hot. Great place for a quick sit down meal

The food I ordered had red sauce on it and it was very bland. The service was good. The best part of the meal was playing Pokemon at the table, there is a Pokey stop a the restaurant.

We decided to stop here on our way home from a trip up north and I'm glad we did. Service was good and the food was great. Plus it was all reasonably priced. I had one of the best Chili Rellenos I've ever had here. We will Definitely be returning on our future visits to the cities.
