El Dorado Cantina was founded in 2014 with a mission to combine organic and non-GMO ingredients with authentic Mexican cuisine inspired by regional recipes across Mexico. At El Dorado Cantina, every item on the menu is made fresh daily from the finest available products. You won’t find canned products or microwaves inside an El Dorado Cantina kitchen – short-cuts like those remove nutrients from the dish before it even reaches the table. We care where your food comes from and we happily share all of our vendors, farms, and kitchen practices with our customers.
Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivores Dilemma, famously stated that “You are what your food eats”. This powerful statement was the driving force behind El Dorado Cantina.

El Dorado Cantina has quickly become a popular destination for celebrities, dignitaries, business professionals, locals, and tourists alike. It has been recognized as the “Best Mexican Restaurant in Las Vegas” multiple years running by the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s annual “Best of Las Vegas” poll; one of the top five Mexican restaurants in the U.S. by Yelp two years in a row, and was named as the #28 Top Restaurant in the U.S. by Yelp in 2016.
El Dorado Cantina believes in using sustainably raised products and carefully selects those products from specialized farms, family businesses, and vendors across the United States. While El Dorado Cantina believes in using organic and GMO-free products, we cannot guarantee that those organic and GMO-free products in every location will be available or offered. When faced with shortages of organic and GMO-free products, El Dorado looks for the next best farm or vendor available.
