If you like savory Mexican cuisine in a queso sauce, El Loro does it well. The Savage location has a lively atmosphere and the 34-oz beers add to the fun. Good service and reasonably-priced entrees.

We have eaten in countless Mexican Restaurants across the nation and this one is the lower 10%. I had high hopes given it's only 10 mins away, but it falls short. Unfortunately, we also received very poor service.

Stopped here on a Saturday evening and were immediately seated. The decor is your typical Mexican with Spanish music. Complimentary chips were served with two sauces. Not sure what the white sauce actually was but I could take it or leave it. I ordered the seafood chimichanga. It was very large and covered in a white sauce with pieces of... More

El Loro is one of those restaurants that you can count on to have a good meal. I always have a little difficulty deciding what to order because they have a lot of choices that I like. The fajitas have always been very good!

Terrible, will never go again. The food seems like they save it from the previous day, then slap cheese on it and microwave it.

This El Loro's is close to where we live and have eaten there many times over the last 20 years. The last 2-3 times we have not enjoyed the food and atmosphere as much. It was 5:30 PM on a week night and they were not busy. My son and I had a desire for some good Mexican food and... More

Rancid oil, almost black the corn chips were tainted by this incredible old burned oil. I asked WHY do you serve this !!!!! The answer was it's all we have, we've been yelling at him to change it......That's it, ....... vegetables used were semi okay, some very tired....

Was hoping this place might be a hidden gem. Wrong. Plenty of wait staff, but none seemed to care about anything. I think the whole time we were there 4 different staff said 20 words total. Waited for initial seating, waited for drink order, waited for drinks, waited to place order. After 45 minutes of eating chips and queso, had... More

El Loro in Savage has delicious reasonably priced Mexican food. We visit often, usually with out of town family. I miss the Sunday night Mariachi music, though.
