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

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 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

Haven't visited a generic Mexican restaurant in years but I had a free evening and decided to visit the El Torito Mexican Grill in Cypress, CA. The experience started out very positively with their signature Margarita on the rocks and some extremely tasty Mexican appetizer. I then ordered the chimichangas which was probably a mistake since it wasn't on their... More
