Love the Taco Tuesdays

El Torito is one of the "go-to" Taco Tuesdays eateries for my circle of friends. We enjoy the fun-filled atmosphere and the our fair share of tacos. I've also had their buffet lunches several times and I appreciate the wide selection of choices they offer. My last visit followed a business meeting... read more

I lunch there at least once a month with my daughter, grand daughter and 15 month old great grand son. We have the buffet and a good time is had by all.

Our server, Victor, was very friendly, but not too chirpy. He had fun preparing our table side guacamole and my salad. The dressing on the salad (something with cilantro) was excellent; I ordered it on the side to avoid it being too heavily dressed. Everyone at our table truly enjoyed their meal.

I want to share an experience I had at El Torito this past weekend. I'm not going to complain about the food or the drinks as my experience was was not related to either. It was much worse... On May 30, 2015 I was assaulted by two members of the El Torito team. It was this past Saturday evening at... More

I visited the restaurant on Cinco de Mayo and found it to be an excellent place to kick up your heels, enjoy some good music and have an excellent experience.

I stopped there on my way to catch a flight out of Ontario. Great fresh chips and salsa. I had the grilled chicken enchiladas, which were out of this world!! The side of guacamole was heavenly and the rice was the best EVER. I will be back on my next visit to SoCal.

Great margaritas (lots of options) & some good daily specials. Good food and service. We chose the option of eating in the bar and there is a nice area that extends beyond the bar; doesn't really feel like you are in a bar.

I don't think I will ever be able to say anything bad about this place. My husband and I had our first date here 26 years ago at the location in Northern Ca. I have never had a bad meal or service here. I enjoyed my waiter and what I loved the most was how each employee checked on me... More
