A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves. For $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mexican fare and drinks at El Dorado, which is located in South Omaha. Customers can toss two Groupons onto the table for parties of four or more.
Unlike the lost city of El Dorado, the menu at El Dorado is loaded with tangible treasure troves of family-style plates that perplex flavor explorers and anthropologists alike. Grab a Parrillada Isla del Farallon—an overflowing platter piled high with breaded shrimp, bacon-wrapped shrimp, crab legs, clams, oysters, filet of fish, plantains, green onions, octopus, more shrimp, a kitchen sink, fish broth, and abalone ($15.99 per person, minimum of two people). Subtle, less-herculean efforts include tacos ($1.79), tortas ($4.99–$5.99), and burritos ($4.99), which can easily be compiled under a bed of crab legs stuffed with bacon-wrapped shrimp covered in fish upon request.
Stop in for a hearty and authentic Mexican breakfast or steak dinner any morning or night of the week. Monday through Wednesday you'll receive a free appetizer with your Groupon. Or, swing through on a Thursday night when the live mariachi band provides the soundtrack for blossoming lovers and competitive eaters to float majestically into the night on the dance floor, which has a suspicious lack of bacon-wrapped shrimp.
Three Yelpers give it three stars, saying:
The cooks at family-owned El Dorado serve generous portions of classic Mexican cuisine. Carne asada steak sizzles on the grill, and seafood dishes such as the Caldos De Siete Mares—a stew bubbling to the brim with catfish, shrimp, and clams—bring the ocean ashore.
