Fajitas to die for and a great desert

I love the sizzling beef fajitas and the tortillas soup. Finally the family loves the chocolate cake desert that melts in your mouth. Add ice cream to make it alamode. yummy

We were at El Torito on Mother's Day. We were a party 6, but had only a short wait for a table even though there were a lot of people.

So, I have to agree with the previous posts. The cantina is a great place to hang out for happy hour. Great prices on drafts and the house margaritas. Plus there are discounts on the appetizers. Bartenders were BERY attentive. I had the quesadilla with chicken and it was great.

I haven't had a bad experience with El Torito. This place is no different. Walking in the place always makes my mouth water. The sizzling sounds of their hot plates are amazing. I order more than I can eat. Great leftovers. All their unique menus and the sauces are amazing.

I hosted a Celebration of Life for my partner who passed away in mid November at this location Dec 27. We were/I am regulars on Fridays for Margaritas and a meal. We have always had a good experience at this restaurant/cantina. We always sit in the Cantina enjoying the numerous TVs and sports while sipping our Margaritas and nibbling on... More

I have eaten at El T''s before but this place had some of the freshest food I have eaten in a chain in a long time. Had 2 meals there and both were very fresh and tasty.

We love this place. Our favorite server is Gloria. Gloria keeps the chips and salsa coming and our glasses are never empty. The carne asada is tender and the sauce is excellent. The carne asada burrito is also very good. I Have never had a bad meal here or bad service. The manager always makes rounds to make sure all... More
