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

I love Mexican food and will try it whenever possible. And I don't mean Taco Bell. Lets start with the salsa. Loved it. Great spice balance and not too hot. Off to a good start. The Cadillac Margarita was very disappointing. It was sour. They do serve the shot of Grand Marnier on the side so you know you got... More

I know what you're thinking, El Torito is a chain restaurant........how good can it be? For some reason, this one is different. I've dined at several others in the chain, but this is the only one I really look forward to. Yes, the food and drink are pretty much the same at all the locations, decent and tasty Americanized Mexican.... More

Two of us stopped in for a meal after a business meeting. We had a guacamole dip prepared table-side. Fresh for sure, perfectly ripe avocados, and a delight to watch Nancy prepare. My friend's steak fajita salad was also served table-side. The sizzling fajita was folded into the salad, dressed then served immediately. The lettuce was wilted just right in... More

There was 8 of us that had dinner here. The Food was really good, but the drink prices were extremely high. We paid over $190 for 18 drinks. Two shots of Tequila they recommended, were $16 each. Be careful when ordering drinks.

It took a while to get seated eventhough it was later in the vening and there were open tables. When we got seated though the service was great! Waitress was prompt and friendly. She brought refills without having to be asked. The food potions are HUGE! And the quality was very good. Worth the money!
