This is easily my favorite restaurant to go to ever. They start you off with endless warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa and what I think is a ranch style sauce. The service is quick and you get free refills (which they're very quick with keeping up with also). The food is out of this world, I can't think of anything I've had that I didn't like. If you like something more plain, the chicken quesadillas are amazing, the chicken is deliciously tender and juicy, and there's just enough yummy cheese sauce to hold it together without it being overwhelming. Then there's more complicated dishes like the enchiladas with mole sauce. I didn't know that this sauce was made with chocolate the first time I had it, and now that I do know, it's all the more amazing. Even something as simple as freshly brewed iced tea is great there. Most restaurants I won't order it because it tastes like brown water, but here they actually brew it for long enough- it's wonderful to actually be able to order a drink I like.\r
(FYI- For those that said it's not ""authentic"" mexican food, my husband is not only from Texas, but also part mexican, and he says this food reminds him of what his grandmother makes. REAL mexican food isn't supposed to be incredibly spicy, you put on however much hot sauce you want after, which is exactly why at El Loro they provide you with three different kinds of hot sauces at every table.)
Pros: Lots of great food at a great price, Quick friendly service
Cons: Parking lot is kind of small, but that's not really the restaurants fault...
