We always have a good meal at this restaurant. Went there for Mother's Day Brunch. Great variety and lots of excellent food and champagne.

This restaurant was dirty and service terrible. It is now closed and Lazy Dog razed the structure and built a very nice looking restaurant on the same space.

We tried this restaurant based on the recommendations of two different staff at the Hilton. It did not disappointed. The service was some of the fastest I have experienced. Our orders were prepared well, and both quite tasty. The "perfect margarita", while expensive at $12, was quite good. Parking and access were both good. We arrived early (5-ish); by 6... More

Our favorite is the rolled grilled tacos, one veggie, one steak, one chicken, which are served on a big sizzling platter with rice, beans, and a tasty sweet corn cake. Yummy. Also the... More

I had my children and we wanted to go across the street from our hotel to Fuddruckers since they were getting ready to close, they were very rude and unfriendly. We immediately decided we would never go back and drove just across the parking lot to El Torito. Great Decision!
