extended happy hour

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 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.

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

This was not as good as others I had been to, but the food never fails. I was disappointed that the guacamole they brought me was premade and not made at my table. Our service was good. All in all I love El Torito, but I have had better food at other locations - maybe just an off night.

We were staying in the area and on our last night in Ontario we were hungry for Mexican food. I searched the internet and I discovered El Torito was right by our hotel. The ambience was very nice and the food was great. I enjoyed the spinach enchiladas and my husband enjoyed his beef enchiladas. We were there with 3... More

Spent two long hours here with small children who were very hungry. One child's meal was forgotten so we had been there 1 1/2 hours before he was fed. Restaurant was not busy so I can only assume understaffed that night. Food was fine but service too slow and restroom messy and in decay, just unacceptable. Felt bad for the... More
