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.

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.

We enjoy the food and the service was very quick as we requested. We had family with us including children and we needed to eat and be at a Lompoc Civic Theatre production within one hour. We were very satisfied!

Stopped there for Lunch on a visit to Lompoc and must have ordered the wrong things. Food was bland and somewhat tasteless. For a town that has a huge Hispanic population, I expected better. When the best thing about the restaurant is the convenient parking.... probably a good time to go somewhere else.

Basically your average California Mexican eatery. Service was good and the price was excellent. Ample parking and a good location. I'll likely be back
