The Family-owened Story of El Dorado Mexican Restaurant in Raymore, MO

As a family-owned and operated restaurant, El Dorado Mexican Restaurant works tirelessly to make all its customers feel like family, too. Here you’ll get authentic Mexican cuisine, which isn’t always easy to find in the area. In the past three years, this restaurant has become a crowd favorite in Raymore because it offers a lively atmosphere, a welcoming dining experience, and incredible Mexican food. If you haven’t yet made it to El Dorado Mexican Restaurant, this is your sign to do so!

Eat Your Way Through the Menu

You can’t go to El Dorado and not try the Al Pastor tacos, which are one of the most popular menu items, according to owner Alberto Ramirez. However, you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Try out one of their awesome burritos or meal plates and you’ll be blown away by the flavor fiesta you experience. In fact, I want to come up with a new challenge – can someone out there commit to trying everything on the menu and telling us the top five best things? Maybe I’ll volunteer for this challenge too.

Community is Family

As mentioned, this is a family-owned restaurant that believes the community is just an extension of their family. They don’t just preach this belief; their actions illustrate it. Through many organizations and town events, El Dorado gets involved in the community. If someone is looking to fundraise, El Dorado will support. If someone is looking to put on a community event, El Dorado has their back. For instance, every Thursday, Dave’s Bike Shop does an Enchilada ride that El Dorado has been involved with for 2 years now.

A commitment to this community is so much more than just lip service; the community can feel when the commitment is genuine and backed by action, and that’s why El Dorado has become such a household name. Their food may be good, but their sense of community is what makes them stand out even more. Alberto is also involved in the Raymore Chamber of Commerce and was named the Raymore Business Person of the Year for 2020. In my opinion, this was incredibly well-deserved, and El Dorado is a business that will always have my support!

Eat Local, Experience Global

This is a local establishment bringing global flavors to our community and enhancing Raymore through food and community involvement. Supporting local always feels better than seeking out chain restaurants that see customers as a dollar sign. Alberto and his team at El Dorado Mexican Restaurant see each customer as a family member.
