We had a quick sandwich and soup. Nothing special, but certainly welcome after a long day of walking around town. Service was gracious and efficient.

We met some friends for lunch at Lorados. The southwestern decor is very interesting and a source of conversation. The staff were very nice and polite. Food was tasty and it was served hot.

Fun local place to get great food and just relax and have a fun time. Blackened Chicken is full of flavor. Definitely recommend. One of those places where everyone knows your name and if they don't when you come in they will when you leave....More
