I don't know why many reviewers are complaining about the ambience at El Loro. It is very authentic Mexican with really great murals about Mexican history. The food is hot (heat and spicy if you want it), service is fast and friendly. I

Like others have said, the ambiance of the restaurant leaves something to be desired... but once you start eating you completely forget about decor! I LOVE this place. I go here about once every couple of months and I always introduce

Friendly and fast, cheap food, pretty good quality. I'd go back! I have my qualms about the place being right next to a graveyard, but, eh... whatever, right!

I enjoyed the RANCH sauce... not cheese like some people think, not too sure

I visited El Loro in Coon Rapids yesterday. While the service and food was subpar at best, my greatest surprise was when I left my table for a moment only to return to find my prescription Versace eyeglasses missing from my table. I asked

Very good Mexican restaurant, one of the top in the Twin Cities. They have a good atmosphere, friendly staff, and great food. There are only 3 Mexican restaurants that we will eat at and this is one of them, very authentic with a wide variety. Large servings and low prices as well.

My family and I are from New York were there is a large Mexican population. How surprised we were when we went to El Loro right near our new house and got authenic Mexican food. We go there at least once a month. The decor and restaurant itself is nothing to gush over but the food makes it so worth it. They are usually super fast which is great for the kids and the prices make it very affordable to eat out.

We went on a Thursday night and sat outside on the patio.

They were quick to bring menus and order drinks but then the waiting started. We waited minutes for our drinks to arrive - as we watched people who had arrived after us get their drinks.

The drinks finally arrived and we ordered food. We enjoyed the free chips and salsa but the cheese? sauce was really weird. We had to ask 3 different waiters to get some more salsa and waited 10 minutes for it to come.

The food finally came (after the people who had arrived after us had already gotten their food). The food was ok - not the best fajitas in the world (we prefer La Casita).

Then the waiting started again to get a doggy bag and the check.

Overall, we weren't that impressed and won't be hurry back. The El Loro in the Burnsville/Eagan area was better. For really good Mexican, we still prefer La Casita.

My family and I love El Loro! The waiters are all so friendly and they accommodate you so well! The food here is absolutely delicious as well! I also love the atmosphere. My Family and I adore Thursday nights Mariachi Band!

This place has great food and friendly service at a terrific price! I am lactose intolerant and they never look at me funny when I ask for no cheese or sour cream. Even if they did, their terrific margaritas would make me not care :)

Being from California, I really miss Authentic Mexican, not Minnesota Bland. This place really hit the mark. It was very tasty and a great value! I drove 20 miles just to try it and I will be back! Delicioso!

Not impressed. I went with my girlfriend on Cinco de Mayo. As expected it was extemley busy. Service was non-existant. They did not have enough people working. Food was ok. Prices are good, as they are at most Mexican places. Decor nothing great. Bar area small and not impressive.

I actually love going here, but I have been disappointed on a few things. First is the service. The wait staff is friendly but sometimes there are some communication (language) problems and sometimes the service is poor. I just go in prepared for this because they have some of the best Mexican food I've had here in Minnesota so far. I'm from Phoenix and am used to good authentic Mexican food and it is usually hard to find here, especially in the northern suburbs. There are some items that I definitely stay away from - the beef enchiladas come to mind - just very strange from what I am used to. All-in-all, big portions, usually great food, and good prices.
