There was no one to greet me on the door, so I waited 5 minutes till one of the staff noticed and seated me. I ordered the steak Fajita and unfortunately was full of onion with a very few steak beef in it. Toilets was dirty which is too bad in a restaurant. Out of 5 Points. - Cleanliness: 2... More

My friend and I walked over from the Hilton, nice short walk. We were seated in bar area in a booth.Many choices on the menu. I tried the sizzling combo which included shrimp, chicken and steak. Loved my food- especially the steak taco. The chips and salas were great too, but asked for hotter salsa. The restaurant was somewhat busy... More

We had been to this El Torito before and I have rated it in the past but our last visit was a bit disappointing. The food was still good (carne asada and chicken enchiladas) but the orders were not quite right and we had to keep asking for things, like tortillas, that are supposed to come with the meal. Our...

Place has a great atmosphere. Service is great. They have the usual margaritas and a few signature drinks that are worth your while. The food is another story. This place will not have your authentic Mexican taste. It is a a blend or their take on Mexican food. It is a great place to hang out and have drinks. Their... More

Walked here from the Hilton and should have kept walking. The most mediocre Mexican meal I've had in Southern California. The menu was limited, service erratic. I had to ask for refills. This place might work in Cleveland or some such place but I can't see how it stays in business in Southern California.

We have been to several El Torito's around the area and this one compares favorably with the others. The service was excellent, very attentive and these people really work their tails off. I had the chile relleno and taco plate and it was excellent. Served hot and the relleno was good and spicy. The chips and salsa here are excellent,... More

Staying nearby so went for dinner one night. It is OK, pretty basic Mexican type cuisine but portions are good and you will not break the bank eating there

Are you a fan of HOT and SPICY???? Wings, of course. What a WOW surprise! Oh the wings - - absolutely addictive if you like spicy. Cadallac margarita habanero flavored, chili peligroso with ghost chiles and guajillo, and Mexican buffalo wings. Usually I find wings "boring" - sort of the fail-safe food if you are sort-of hungry, should eat "something"... More
