Not at all like the other El Torrero restaurants in metro Atlanta Mediocre food, grisly meat, wilted lettuce. Chips are good. Outside windows are filthy. Will not be returning again!

It's Friday before Labor Day and I stopped at El Torero for a 16 oz frozen margarita, chips and guacamole dip. This place DOES make great frozen margarita!‏

Great little Mexican restaurant with marvelous service, quality food, and off the chart Margaritas. One of the best kept secrets on this side of town.

I'm a local to this area (my office is right by this location) so we choose El Torero frequently for lunch. I am a Tex Mex snob, so this food doesn't 100% cut it for me, but it's decent. They have great lunch specials and their service is GREAT.

This is a popular Mexican restaurant and rightfully so. The food is reasonably priced, and the food is excellent. The chips and salsa are above the ordinary. Margaritas are excellent. Definitely try the strawberry margaritas. Yum! 5575 Peachtree Industrial, just north of Broad Street and Chamblee Plaza on the eastern side of the street. ------ There are several restaurants by...
