The chips and salsa are much better than I remembered it, especially when fresh and hot. The whole family had fun munching on chips. We were all too full to get the fried ice cream, unfortunately. I'm not sure why the kids picked cheese pizza but they loved it (for an adult, it was a little thick for me).

Service was the worst I've had in years. Multiple errors in our food order. Had to ask 3 times for silverware. Kept getting excuses for errors and not a reason. My party was almost done with their food before I received mine. Asked for the manager twice and never saw anyone. Food was poor quality and quantity. Won't return here... More

Bussiness lunch I felt they wanted us to order the buffet but we did not and it took for ever. Food was great on the upside

They have a wide variety of menu selections. The food is good, service is good and the drinks even better. Good place to take a group of people for an enjoyable time while you eat.

We have eaten at various El Toritos in CA and always have the problem of poor service. This one is no exception. We have a large family and you'd think putting down a basket of chips and salsa wouldn't be too hard for a waiter--WRONG. We waited and waited and waited. Finally got some chips but then had to wait... More
