Way overpriced, mediocre food – This place came highly recommended for steaks, and I went and found the location one of the most beautiful in phoenix. Maybe my expectations were too high, but my steak was not flavorful, the vegetables were overcooked, and when you started look closely at things around you, they appeared more rundown than authentic. After awhile, all I could see were the water stains, rust, and coarse exposed wood, and it ruined my meal.
Emperor's New Clothes – We've vacationed and now live in Scottsdale and have read the volume of reviews which describe El Chorro as an icon. Who writes these reviews and where were they dining? Our experience couldn't have been more different. I agree with a previous reviewer who recommended not to go inside. Stop for a cocktail at sunset on the patio, but save dinner for one of the many outstanding restaurants in the valley. The menu was limited, the food was average, but the worst was the value. You should expect much more for these prices. Also, all the hype about the sticky buns is overrated. They would be decent for breakfast but do nothing to enhance the meal or the dining experience.
JJ – Happy Hour is Wonderful I don't know how they can pull it off 5 nights a week. On weekends the Music is outside under the ValleyStars. Make a reservation for out side if not Juy & Augustl
It's the View – The view from the outdoor patio is serene. The food is good, but not as amazing as I was expecting based on the reviews from this site. DON'T GO INSIDE, I think that will ruin the mood. It's a bit run down in parts and not as appealing to the eye. Having said all this, I would still recommend it, just don't go expecting Gainey Ranch or the Royal Palms, it is not. But it really is a very pretty place to have a good meal with a wonderful view in a gorgeous neighborhood.
