Nice setting but the acoustics were horrible, could not hear conversation at our own table of four people. Friendly staff. Impressive menu although rather fancy and a bit pricey, food quality OK but I am not asking for their recipes. It does have parking right next to door. Careful of the rough, cracked sidewalk just outside the door.

Had the lobster, shrimp, crab enchiladas. Was expecting just that - pieces of all 3. Instead, item arrived and ingredients were all puréed in a creamy mush, with no flavor. The only plus was the enchilada had a crunchy exterior. The red rice was flavorless and tasted oily. Hot sauce was not good and guacamole was very bland. Tortilla chips... More

Business Team dinner. Very good food. Strong drinks. Chips weren't free, but their guac is awesome. Had the market priced beef and potatoes. Excellent!! Parking is confusing. I ended up parking on a side street and walking.

This 2nd visit wasn't any better than the first. Service was poor but still had to pay an 18% gratuity because I was in a group. The brunch 'Southern Grits and Eggs' were too rich with way too much cream and the eggs undercooked. The Texas Toast consisted of plain regular sliced white toast. At $12.99 it was over-priced. I...

My son and I came here for dinner. Warm, brick restaurant. Food was delicious! I had the vegetable & goat cheese empanadas with chipotle aioli - they were amazing! I also had the beef and chorizo street tacos - they were good, would have like more chorizo flavor. My son had a pork belly that he loved! I gave service... More

We had a great meal here while visiting Madison. We sat in the heated outdoor patio and it was nice and quiet and perfect for our 2 year old. We had the kids quesadilla, chicken fried chicken, and the roast pork. Everything was great, as was the service.

Yummy Tex Mex food is combined with a warm and friendly atmosphere, making for a great meal. We tried the Smoked Chicken Enchiladas (I ordered them Gluten Sensitive, and they more like flautas, but good), the chicken fried chicken was ordered by two in our party, and both were happy, and the brisket. The restaurant was clean and well kept.

Stopped in on a Sunday morning for brunch with our daughter and husband. Food was excellent. I had an omelet that was perfect with fresh ingredients. They also have a nice selection of vegetarian dishes. Will definitely go back next time we are in Madison. Nice atmosphere in a fun part of town.

My husband and I had dinner at Eldorado Grill to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose Eldorado because we had a Food Fight gift card and it's the nicest Food Fight restaurant on the east side of Madison. We both had the half-rack of ribs with sides of chipotle potato salad, green chile pinto beans, house slaw, pickles, onions, and... More

Great ambiance with plenty of choices on the dinner menu i.e. vegan Chili, salads, ribs, fish tacos, burritos and fajitas. Large flavorful servings of authentic Tex Mex. Worth a visit when in Madison.

Voted Best Brunch in Madison! With classic favorites like Chicken Fried Chicken and Baby Back Ribs, southwestern flavor is wrangled into every item on our menu. Feeling adventurous? Try one of our Platos Mexicanos such as Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas.
