I have eaten at El Loro before, but not for a while. I recently went there for lunch. We were one of the first customers of the day as it was just before noon. I thought because the restaurant had so few customers, we would...More

Excellent Mexican food. Huge portions. Good chips and salsa while you wait. Chips were not greasy and salsa and a little bite to it. I ordered the chicken fajitas which I could have eaten for 3 meals. The service was good, although a man who...More

We've been driving past El Loro for years and finally tried it. We were very impressed with the authentic Mexican food. I wanted to try something different so I went with the Pina El Loro, very tasty. My husband (Mr. Finicky) had the Chimichangas and...More

Always friendly service! I go with a group of women and we ask for separate checks which they provide. Always check to see if we want another margarita or that the food is good. Very attentive wait staff.

Actually in Moundsview, it's easily found. Parking ample, Not too crowded, even for a Saturday afternoon. Clean, nice decor. Service was great, food very good, too. Unless you really like beer, avoid the 32 oz mug. We'd go back

We had never eaten at an El Loro restaurant before but have eaten many times at Mexican restaurants across the country and in Mexico. The staff is friendly and eager to please. We were given complimentary chips, salsa and a Mexican ranch dip. We didn't...More

Decent food but there is a strong smell of cleaner throughout the place. Kind of like pine sol. That part isn't very appetizing but the food and service is good. I hope management reads this and changes what they use to clean the tables and...More
