This little place is a great little nugget of a restaurant hidden in stone mountain. It's quite and quaint with great food. The people are friendly and most accommodating. The price is very reasonable with fast service.

We went for our first dinner at El Torero on a Friday night because several friends love this restaurant. There was some confusion when we went in because it appears that you seat yourself here but there is no sign to indicate that. One of the staff eventually told us that we could sit anywhere. So we chose a table.... More

The service is fast and friendly. Their food is priced right for all budgets. The shrimp enchilada is one of my favorites. Love their salsa on everything. NOTE: They close down at 2pm so don't try to get a late lunch.

It was just okay. It kind of takes a lot to impress me when it comes to Mexican food because 99% of the time it all tastes the same, and I'm always aware of the fact that I could cook as good or better at home for a fraction of the cost. There were five of us, and our bill... More

It has pretty good prices, the quality of the food is ok. About taste, well it is average america-mexican flavor. It has a huge place and the service was really fast.

One reviewer complained that her margarita was bland, tasted like mixer. Well, I don't know which one she had, but the Texas Margarita is full of liquor, believe me, and will know you on your butt! It taste good, too!

Not sure what all to really say about this place other than it was bland. The tables are like lunch room tables and you have no room for all the chips, plates, glasses, etc. The beans were flavorless, service average, margaritas tasted only like mixer. Blah.

"El T's" is a great place to take your kids or meet friends after your kids' games or drop in as an empty nester when want to reflect on your gone-to-college kids and the time you spent eating there, but you will find better Mexican food at other restaurants. I wouldn't say the food tastes particularly fresh and "just made"... More

Waited to order. Waited and waited for our food. They got our orders mixed up. The carnitas were not carnitas. Did I mention the service was slow? Very slow. The food was ok but a little overpriced for the serving size compared to other Mexican restaurants. Did I mention the service was slow? I feel it's worth mentioning again. There... More
