El Toreo Mexican Restaurant

A very good Mexican Restaurant. The restaurant is roomy, very clean, and the service was excellent. The plates are really more than enough. You'll probably have to ask for a box to take what you haven't finished home with you. The chips and salsa are also very good. There is ample parking. I... read more

A very good Mexican Restaurant. The restaurant is roomy, very clean, and the service was excellent. The plates are really more than enough. You'll probably have to ask for a box to take what you haven't finished home with you. The chips and salsa are also very good. There is ample parking. I would return to El Toreo again.

Title says it all. Including complimentary chip and Salsa. The food was excellent and so was the service.

A decent place to stop and grab a bite to eat. Absolutely not fine dining, but good food and a great value. Service was initially slow, but once they realized I was there, they got back on track.Don't expect anything special, just decent food.

99 cents for margaritas! Great service, food and nice people. Convenient located in good part of town. Generous servings.

I had to give this place a 2/5 because the service was good but the food was bland. I am actually upset that I wasted my dinner calories on my flavorless meal. My husband and step-son both agreed that their meals were bland. I would give Taco Bell a higher rating, no offense.

First time at a El TOreo...It was ok for a quick meal...nothing to write home about...generic rice and beans sides with everything, no choices to change to...enchiladas were ok too...I would not make a special trip to eat there, but I would stop if I was going right by them...

It is certainly interesting what people think about restaurants and what is good or not. This was just OK bland Mexican food service was good prices fair, but think pedestrian food at best.

Restaurant was very busy 7pm. Got seated right away. Nicole our server was probably the most attentive server We've ever had. Food came out fast and hot. Could not have expected a better dining experience.

We always stop here when staying in the nearby Residence Inn (and started going here when previously staying at the nearby Hilton). This is a big place; we've never had to wait for a table, although it is consistently busy. Full bar; they make a great dry Martini, not always the case in a Mexican restaurant. The food is pretty...
