My Visit to El Alboroto Mexican Seafood Restaurant in Peoria AZ


Without a navigation system you might pass El Alboroto Mexican Seafood Restaurant by.  One year after opening they still don’t have an outside sign on the building. When you get closer you can see that you are at the right place.

What does El Alboroto mean?  According to the dictionary Alboroto translates to an uproar, a  disturbance or a riot. Maybe it translates to riotous seafood?

This isn’t a fancy place and Mexican TV is on. Our waitress speaks Spanish to most of the guest but switched up to English for us.

The menu is in Spanish with English but lacks descriptions.


I asked what the Pescado Relleno was like.

The waitress said the fish is stuffed with octopus.

I ordered the Shaken Grilled Fish. I asked what it was and was told it was fish that comes with peppers.

I received this.

My fish is fried crispy. I don’t know if it was grilled too? And yes there are some peppers there. Looks like Ranchero Fish? ….anyway….It’s tasty and is a large portion. It’s like someone’s  Mexican Mom made it for you. It’s very home style.

My husband had the Diablo Shrimp. He said the shrimp were a little bbq like in the taste.

Last time I had the wrapped fish (sea bass). It was very good and maybe better than a similar plate I had in Mexico. At the time it was the best Mexican fish dish I had in Metro Phoenix.

This dish had a great presentation.  It appears and taste like they had a different chef then.

My husband had the same shrimp dish and it also differs in appearance and taste.

Still good but a little more home style now.

El Alboroto doesn’t have a website but you can find them on Facebook.

Not big on atmosphere.  if your in the neighborhood and you don’t want the usual Sonoran Stuff and  if you don’t feel like trekking to downtown Phoenix for Mexican Style Seafood…….here it is!

The Forking Truth is that EVERY FORKING THING is subject to change and your experience may or may not differ!
