Disclaimer: I did go to school with the owner, who I've not seen for many years but I went there several times a week before I knew this because I love the breakfast bowls and so does my wife who does not know the owner. Please let me know if I need to pull this review because of this "relationship". Breakfast: I've had the pancakes where were good, but the breakfast bowl is my mainstay. I hope I can find something like this where I'm moving soon, wish I would have found this place sooner, I could eat this every day, much to the dismay of my physician. Lunch: Haven't tried anything but the burgers and haven't had the urge to try anything else for lunch here, the burgers just work. I'm pretty sure the fries are hand cut every day, as it's a small place and I've seen them cutting them. The also have fresh pies every day, but I've yet to try one. Haven't tried dinner yet, every night there seems to be something new and tasty, but we like to have dinner as a family at home if at all possible. It's a little crowded as there's 10 or so places to sit around the counter, but there is outside covered seating and a drive-thru window. I wouldn't change a thing here.

We have ate here about 5 times. So far any thing we've ordered has been very good. The wait staff is very polite and gets our orders correct and food to us hot. Great place to eat while working in El Dorado.
A limited-release beer from Walnut Brewing brought me back to El Dorado's Main Street. I figured I'd get lunch while I was making my way through 8.5% ABV's worth of Mosaic hops. Burgers are always a safe bet when trying a new sports bar, and this one ended up being slightly better than most. The patty was a little overcooked, but everything was seasoned, the bun was toasted, and the thin cut fries received a healthy hit of salt and pepper. As I sat there taking my sweet time to get through my burger and double IPA, an older gentleman who cooks in the back grabbed a Budweiser at the stool next to mine. Despite my best efforts to avoid eye contact, we started making small talk. "Beats the hell out of McDonald's, doesn't it?" he asked. I agreed without much commitment.
Small town, USA setting. Food is rich and delicious and fried and fatty. I got the 5 alarm burger and oh man that beef was all corn fed and dripping which is kinda what I wanted. The steamed vegetables side dish was no Bueno but what was I thinking ordering that? We were there on a game night and the vibe was great! Cool architecture, old building, nicely situated on the main drag, great place to take visiting family. I docked them one star because I didn't see anything locally-sourced on the menu.

I love Jacob's Well! Good food, friendly staff, and charming atmosphere! Their wood fire grilled pizzas are delicious. I love their sweet tea, some of the best I've ever had! The fresh baked bread used on their sandwiches is delightful!
Great coffee shop in small town El Dorado, Kan. Stopped in on the way up to Manhattan. Great coffee, with friendly service and a happy hour.
A bit different place for eldorado seems to be more of a Seattle trendy place but will say the bacon turkey panini (spelling) was very good. Wish they made home cut fries with meal but still very good. price was ok 7$ for a sandwich,pickle,bag of chips again good handful of fries for same price it would be a sweet meal for good price

Beijing Restaurant

1905 W Central Ave
El Dorado, 67042
Reviews:
I live here in El Dorado and was confused to see such low ratings for Beijing! I've had tons of Chinese food and think this is up there with the best of them! It's a cozy little place that was recently remodeled and is very decently priced. We go here for our nice meals when we want to stay in El Dorado!
Never thought I'm gonna see a nice Chinese restaurant in this town, and moreover, never thought that the food in a western and Asian food in 1 was gonna be pretty good. But, I must say that the taste was OK and the portion generous. Full bar and dark, almost to the point of a strip club in the bar area. This place is a melting pot: steaks, pastas, clam chowder, standard American-Chinese entrees, or even sushi. Service was prompt even though I only saw 2 waiter/waitresses for the whole restaurant.
There's not a whole lot to eat for lunch in this town, at least for non-fast food. A-ok chinese food. They serve potatos with all entrees, which is odd, but let's just call it the 'local touch'. We are in Kansas, after all.

Reviews:
Just had the sticky ribs this afternoon.... Well, they were outstanding. I wasn't expecting such perfect ribs. I highly recommend these, they are not too smoky and does not have a lingering smoky flavor. They are extremely tender and the sauce is wonderful.
As a Minnesotan coming through town, was pretty good and better than most if not all Minnesotan BBQ. Had better elsewhere in Kansas though. Pros: great smokey flavor with all the meats we tried, very clean restaurant, friendly staff Cons: Ribs were slightly dry I'd eat there again and again
3.5 star BBQ. 5 star if you grading on the "El Dorado" curve. The "El Dorado" curve means you have strayed far enough from Wichita, that from here on out until you get to KC your odds of finding good food, hot women, fast motorcycles, fine wine, or great scotch - is about ZERO. So if you do, God Bless It, hang on and enjoy. This is one of those places. I've gotten food here a dozen times; usually to go. They always have some attractive and friendly young girls that provide prompt service when you stop in to grab grub on the run! Warning to you pickup artist types - before you get excited and decide to drop in for a date - you probably need to be a high school age to legally flirt with anything female here. But they really nice. If you're into guys, well I can't help you, cause I don't really look at the guys. 5 - Pulled Pork. I'm a Green Egg, slow smoked pulled pork master snob. And I can say with conviction - they do a damn good job here. 4 - Baked beans. Yep, they're good. 4 - Chopped Brisket 3 - Sliced Brisket (every time it's been a bit dried out, not tender) 2 - Okra, probably my least favorite fried okra I forget which other sides I usually get, but it's all decently 3+. The Okra is the only thing I ever wind up feeding the dogs. (I mean real dogs, not some of the girls I know in Kansas) 3.5 - Sauces. The sauces are pretty good here. They are no Blues Hog or Burnt Sacrifice (5 stars), or even Oklahoma Joe's "Night of the Living" (solid 4 star). But they're not bad. I like my pork BBQ sauce to be spicy, with hint of apple cider vinegar and some sage honey. Their sauce leans a little more towards Texas than KC, but it's got a nice midwestern base and I can live with it. Bottom Line: Go here, it's one of the better places in El Dorado and about the only good chain-BBQ around.

Great food and service. Homemade hot sauce. Good for vegetarians and gluten free options. Best place to eat off I35. Tamale was fantastic. Cheap.
Love this place! Their queso is perfection! I always order the taco salad. Grilled chicken or steak fajitas. So good!

Gambino’s Pizza

Reviews:
I was actually amazed at how tasty the pizza was. I will definitely eat here again. The wings were quite a bit under cooked even after requesting them to be cooked well done.
If you desire poor service, please stop by here. I've traveled all over the U.S. and have never had an experience like this. If the staff realizes that you are not from El Dorado KS, they will certainly let you in on that. Rather than try to apply any type of logic, I just left. So much for friendly service, you would receive better service at a prison!!!!!!! I would like to say thanks to the staff.
Great pizza! Would have gave it five stars but the service could use some improvements.

El Dorado Chop House

Reviews:
Checked it out yesterday and it was GOOD. Everyone was very friendly and the food came out fast. I had a Ruben Sandwich w/tator tots and my husband had Hamburger Steak. Everything was Hot also.
The negative reviews may have turned us off but the guy in the toll booth recommended this place for breakfast. The service was good and the waitress was polite. I did see her serving others while on her phone which is a little inconsiderate. My wife had a veggie omelette and was happy with it. I had the kitchen sink breakfast and should have ordered the small portion because it's huge. Could have been a little spicier to add some flavor but this meal will carry me the day. Not a five star restaurant but good enough for breakfast. The prices are good and worth the stop.
We gave this place one more try last night. If you like really bland food and poor service, then this is your place. My son was in the mood for soup last night and there are few choices for that in El Dorado. We stood at the front counter for several minutes before we were greeted. When we asked the hostess what their soup was that day, she didn't know and had to go check. Then told us they didn't have any. We should have left then. Our waitress couldn't answer simple questions and didn't really notice when we needed something. We were her only table but she was never around. I love salmon but it was the most tasteless salmon I have ever had. The skin on my baked potato was tough. My carrots had no flavor. We had a company party there when this place first opened and it had a better menu and attentive service. Dinner for two was $31 for two entrees and one ice tea. We could have had a nice meal in Wichita for that.

Nothing really stands out to the good above any other Taco Bell I've ever visited. Beware this one does NOT have sweet tea. No sense in returning while working here.
