We love the salsa and salad bar, we love the way the restaurant is set up, we love Taco Tuesday, and finally we love the service here. Very friendly, and prompt. Breakfast was very good too. Highly recommend.

We haven't been here in quite some time. Truthfully, it went downhill for a long while. Not sure why. But we got tired of the other Mexican joints in town so we decided to give them another try. Like the Python witch victim (John Cleese), they got better. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the prices were... More

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.
