Stopped in on our way to LA and were thrilled. Had the burrito and my wife had the quesadilla and we were both very happy. Not skimpy with the meat at all. Salsa had a little bite which was nice. With two sodas and tip we got out under $30. I would come back in a minute.

In the little city of Lompoc, just 45 minutes north of Santa Barbara, CA is the very affordable El Toro Bronco Restaurant. When you step inside you wonder if it’s a bar or a restaurant, but it has some of the best Mexican food I have tasted since spending Mexican Independence Day in Playa Del Carmen. An absolute “must try”... More

We asked the woman who checked us into our hotel for a restaurant recommendation and this is where she sent us. I have to say we were extremely disappointed! Overall the service was okay. The margaritas were touted as being really good because they were made from scratch and not a mix. Well I guess we love the "mix margarita"... More

Terrible service, rude staff, and this additude goes all the way to the top. food was ok, it took a long time to get all the food we ordered, and after voicing my concern, they got angry with us.! Manager , or whoever he was cussed at us in front of the little ones.

Can only vouch for the giant burrito and one of the combi plates which were both very good. Very little atmosphere and "rough" service but fairly friendly and efficient nevertheless. Good value and I'll be going back.

The best Mexican restaurant in Lompoc, if not the region, which really isn't saying much. Don't know why it's so hard to get good Mexican food around here. Service is generally friendly if otherwise unremarkable, and the food is good for the price point.

We have been to El Toro Bronco many times. Typically good food and good service. My husband and I both ordered burritos. I had the chili relleno and my husband the shredded beef. Although the burrito was good it was a little bland. Presentation gets a -zero. All they do is plop a burrito on a dish and serve it.... More

We stopped by around 9:00 pm and they were ready to close. Maybe because of that the food was not as good as it could be, but it was our first time in this place, so I have nothing to compare it too. My stake was dry and overcooked. My friend ordered a burrito and he could barely eat it... More

Visited there recently for carry out back to a hotel room across the street. After eating the shrimp and beef fajitas I became ill with indigestion, abdominal cramps, nausea, watery diarrhea, and severe dehydration over the next 72 hours, eventually arrested by Imodium. No doubt illness was directly related to the carry out at El Toro Bronco, Lompoc. Be very... More

Very clean, fast service, nice bar, seems much cleaner than average California Mexican restaurant. Food isn't greasy and portions are nice. Specials are tasty. I eat here everytime I have to work in Lompoc. Great salsa with chips while waiting.
