We were impressed with the service and the food

Several of my family members and myself chose this restaurant for lunch on a day we were in Grand Island to visit my Mother in the hospital. The place is nice, the service good and the food was enjoyed by all!

I really appreciate the great and friendly service, truly a necessity. The food is wonderful, but honestly I have a hard time trying various dishes, I loved the first dish I ordered and keep ordering it. Not being a big drinker, I only order a margarita once in a while, Yum. If I had a criticism, it would only be... More

Don't get me wrong, the food is good, if a bit bland, but the service is so poorly organized that you may find it takes much longer than you anticipated to order, to get your food after it has been ordered (ours arrived cold and incomplete), and you may have to ask for beverage and chip refills. The folks appear... More

Pros: Delicious, authentic Mexican food. Nice variety on menu. Complementary chips and salsa (chips are perfect), friendly quick service. Reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere. Cons: I've been here a handful of times, and my (or my friend's) orders have been a little messed up a couple of times. (Chicken quesadilla when I ordered a cheese quesadilla, forgot the a la carte'... More

We've been back a few times since my review back in 2011, but I thought I'd give an update. It snowed again, so husband and I did our tradition of enjoying a good meal here after snowblowing. I was surprised to read the other reviews of disappointment since once again, we were very happy with our food and service. We... More

I was a little afraid of going here because of some of the reviews but it was late and one of the few sit down restaurants that were still open. So I gave it a go and I do have to say that it was a pleasant surprise! The food was decent and the service we received was good. I... More

My family has raved about this restaurant for several years. This was my first time eating here. Staff was very quick to seat us even though we were a large group. Our server was very conscientious of us and spent a great deal of time making sure we were well taken care of. Food quantity was quite large. Free dessert... More

I am not really a fan of Mexican food, but the meal I had at El Toro was excellent. When I asked for the meals that were not spicy hot, the waiter directed me to some great choices. The service was top-notch, fast and friendly. I recommend El Toro, even for those who don't particularly like Mexican food.

It was right around 5pm/ customers in the dining area but appeared to have enough servers. Didn't seem to be supervised cuz they all hung around the table by the front door. we went with another couple and all 4 meals were luke warm at best and the cheese sauce on 3 of the meals was not good at all....
