Stop Off I75 If Hungry

I'm guessing that most people looking at this review will be like I was, traveling on I75 around lunch or dinner time. I was happy we chose it, it was some of the best Mexican I've ever had. Which maybe isn't surprising given that Walton, KY is widely considered the heart of Mex cuisine in the... read more

We have been to El Toro Bravo twice now, and both experiences have been excellent. One doe not anticipate a quality dining experience in a strip mall, but El Toro Bravo delights and surprises. The menu is extensive and varied, the service quick and friendly, the portions substantial and the taste of the dishes was a delight. We have not... More

Very large menu. Plenty to chose from and food was fantastic. Service was average and our server was great. I loved that tulum was all over the place.

El Toro has very good Mexican food and the owners and staff are absolutely top notch. Come to El Toro on any day or night of the week and you will receive friendly service and quality food. Thursday karaoke can be quite interesting as well.

Nice, well decorated with very friendly and accommodating staff. It's hard to find unique food in a mexican restaurant in the midwest these days. Can;t say it is truly authentic, but is presented nicely with a very accommodating staff. I wanted just a simple pollo fundido, not on the menu, but they made it anyway! Food was good, hot, selection... More

We have dined here several times and it is somewhat inconsistent. This last time was excellent. The food was great as well as the service. When it's good it's very good

As far as Mexican food goes it can be really hit and miss. This place hits every time. Great menu, great prices, and great staff. The place is also very clean. I am lucky to live near this restaurant but if you like Mexican food it is worth the drive if you live farther out.
