I'm in Margaritaville!

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!‏

I would actually give this place NO Star rating if there were such a thing....the staff at this location are absolutely the nastiest most surely team of people I have encountered in a restaurant in a while. I actually had dinner there last night, and instantly remembered why I had stopped coming here. I chose to stop by because I... More

I've been eating tex-mex for 65 years, since a child growing up in Ft. Worth Texas. I've eaten it in restaurants from New Mexico to London England, in large cities and down back streets in small towns. But El Terero's in Chamblee (which used to be pretty good 30 years ago) has to be one of the worst dinners (of... More

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!

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 mexican food is so great you'll want to slap your mama! I've eaten at El Torero's for 25 years.(The original one in Chamblee) but all locations are equally as great. The service has NEVER been lacking and neither has the food. It is hard to say that over 25 years eating in a restaurant you haven't had one bad... More

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...
