I have been eating here for ten years. Little has changed. Some of the staff are new some are still there. This is located in little Mexico so expect the timing to reflect that. The servers are busy cleaning and taking care of people but this isn't LaMesa okay. Some of the menu's are in English and some of the... More

A group of us had lunch in this charming Mexican restaurant on S. 24th St. Primarily seafood, most of the dishes featured shrimp and there are a few other entrées including red snapper. The beans were excellent as was the rice. But the large shrimp in a ranchero style sauce was the best. The atmosphere is a bit chaotic, with... More

Went here with my family for dinner after visiting the Zoo. The price is definitely not cheap, but you get a lot of food for the cost. It is more like a bar scene so it was loud with mexican music and lots of drinking. The food is excellent though so the noise makes it worth it for us. I... More

El Dorado was highly recommended to us by Necole at Pam's Grub & Pub in Grand Island NE. She said we would love the specialty item Parrillada Banco de Camarones. Believe me, she was completely right! This really is one of the best meals we've ever had in a restaurant. We are traveling, and what a delight it was to... More

As a frequent traveler in Central and South America I love Omaha's South 24 Street. The area has lots of Latino Restaurants and shops. It is a great place to practice your Spanish.

We walked in to this busy restaurant on a Sunday and were immediately offered a table (one of only two that were empty). Our server brought us menus right away and took our drink orders.
