Great Mango Margarita!

Food is average to good. We ordered beef tacos, chorizo tacos and quacamole. The first night the bartender kicked butt! The restaurant was packed and he maintained his composure and was friendly and attentive without being over bearing. The reason that we dined the second night at the same... read more

Great food, fantastic drinks, low price, quick service. I don't think this place could be any better! I've been here probably a dozen times and everytime I leave I say: 'Once again, it didn't fail to impress me!' This is without a doubt my favorite Mexican restaurant anywhere around.

Ate dinner here. Never again. The steak was so tough a steak knife wouldn't budge it. Service lacking. Nachos soggy.

I would not call this authentic Mexican food in any way but still it is tasty. The portions are pretty large and come heaped with gobs of cheese...if you like cheese...and I do...it tastes good. My wife always ends scooping a pound or two of it the side on her plate! LOL. Conservative pours on their drinks make me usually... More

Greeted with a smile from Nellie the hostess-quick service-chips & salsa come to the table right away. Servers are always friendly, courteous & attentive. Food is always good & comes out hot.

Atmosphere is friendly, food is tasty, and $1 margaritas!!! We did not expect to eat there but had a dinner earlier at another restaurant and it was not very good so ended up here on the way back to our hotel. It was a fun, friendly and economical experience.

Great Mexican food and drinks at El Toreo2. This place is a great deal and the Steak Burrito and Ice Cold beer cannot be beat in this area!

Specials each weekday on food - fajitas on Monday dinner are a great deal esp. The shrimp and done perfectly. Service is always right on, they come right out with chips & salsa as soon as you are seated. A favorite for us since their opening.

We were on the road and staying at a local inn. This was close by and decided to give it a shot. The chips and salsa were a disappointment. Very little flavor, tasted like crushed tomatoes with a little garlic. The chille rellenos were sliced green peppers instead of poblanos so we avoided those. My wife had a combo plate... More
