Wait staff are a little more veteran - which means they are awesome!! SO happy and friendly - no attitudes at all.

The chips and salsa were fresh and tasty! I ordered two tacos with beans and rice! Everyone else had the... More

Super cold Tecate Beer! Chips and salsa were okay. Sat at bar for happy hour. Great service. Food is usually always good here, typical chain mexican restaurant food.

Stopped in before a concert and was pleased with our food and drinks. Our service was a bit slow but it wasn't too big a deal since we were not in a serious rush. The pina margaritas are delicious! A Must try!

Every time we go to Southern California, we seek out an El Torito's Restaurant. The one on Ball Road in Anaheim seems consistant and overall good. We noticed we had the same waiter from a few years ago! Always accomodating and attentive. Fajitas were delicious! Cheese enchiladas were very good; except ONLY complaint was the cheese in the middle on... More

My wife and I went to El Torito for a late lunch. Probably should have eaten at the Mexican fast food place around the corner. The place was NOT busy by any means, so we decided to eat at the bar hoping for more attentive service. This apparently was a mistake. Probably took 15 minutes for anybody to realize that... More

We were a little disappointed; food was over priced but good. Service was slow. Specials were only in the bar, Happy Hour was not very special.

I wasn't impressed by the restaurant. I asked for a shrimp burrito and they only put like 5 shrimps in it. The food took a half an hour. They said they would get ice cream for my daughter's birthday and instead they brought FLAN (which she didn't like). Should have gone to Benihana's next door...
