There are two groups of people that you’ll find in the parking lot of the El Dorado Cantina: those going to the strip club on the right and those heading left to get some of the best Mexican food in Las Vegas. Both are about to spend some money - but the group that goes to the left is the one you want to be in. Between the massive dining room that’s always full of groups drinking margaritas, the thought of what’s happening next door, and the fact that they never close, this place is usually loud and rowdy anytime after 7pm. And since the menu is clearly marked with lots of dishes that are gluten-free (empanadas), vegetarian (chile rellenos), and vegan (cauliflower tacos), no one has to leave hungry or unhappy.
