We held our daughter's wedding dinner at El Loro. Food was great (paid by parents), drinks were plentiful (paid by individuals), and prices were reasonable for a group of about 40. Great place to throw a casual dinner party. Service was friendly and quick.

Food is always excellent and the atmosphere is nice-festive but not loud. It's colorful and the service is always terrific

Stopped here recently after many years and couldn't believe how bad the service had become. Waited to order and almost was going to walk out when a waitress finally came around. Asked if we wanted more chips and never recieved them. Felt very disrespected and would not recommend this restraunt if you appreciate good service.

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
