2 out of 5 stars
Sometimes generic decor and a haphazard paint job are indicative of a hidden gem whose owners dedicate most of their attention to the food. El Dorado is not such an establishment. We checked it out on the advice of a friend who lives right around the corner – she took pity on me because I let Glen order at least once a week from Wang’s Kitchen. Though the food here is cheap, the menu is almost an exact mirror of any other Mexican restaurant in Raleigh. My taquitos arrived next to a bed of shredded lettuce, a slice of tomato, and the smallest dab of guac and sour cream ever. Glen’s taco-less taco salad was a sad, soupy sight to see. The salsa that came with our chips was ok – a bit spicy but not chunky, very thin.
