This place has been there for years and has always been good food for a great price. It's in a little strip mall that is run down but some of the best places are a hole in the wall. And they have the best cheese dip out of any of the Mexican places around.

Somehow or take out order was messed up. I called when I returned home to complain and the female manager on duty spent several minutes telling me how she did not mess up the order and it was not their fault. Not what I was wanting to hear. I asked them what they were willing to do to make me... More

Del Toro is our favorite Mexican restaurant. Food is good, seems to be freshly cooked. Best chiles rellenos I have had other than in San Antonio. Wait staff is fast and very polite. We are locals and eat there regularly. As CaptainRonn said, "don't let the exterior keep you away".

We were told about this restaurant by one of it's regular patrons. Luckily, he told us that the facade was not a real drawing card for the restaurant. It is in an older strip mall, next to a Chinese restaurant. However, once inside, it is typically decorated and immaculately clean. The waitstaff are friendly and quick to provide service. The...

This restaurant is located in a shopping area in Alabaster just off of 119 to Montevallo. We always enjoy anything we order especially the salads. They marinade some of the veggies in the salad which make it a little unusual but very good.

We have been going to Del Toro since it first opened. The food is consistently yummy and the service if friendly and efficient. chicken fajitas are the best hands down to any I have had anywhere. Their salsa is addictive. The chicken asada is very tasty. Beef Burrito supreme with the salad is delicious. Very generous portions.

As Mexican restaurants go, this one fits along right with the others. But they stand out by great friendly service. My husband and I are regulars, almost going once a week. At least 3 times a month. The service is great. The food is always fresh. The drinks are topped off and the price is GREAT
