New to the area from Tampa, FL and was looking for a good Mexican restaurant. . Did not find it here. The food and service was awful. Ordered the enchilada special and chicken fajitas and was very disappointed in both. It didn't help that service was very disappointing, waiter was on cell phone during visits to the table. Will not... More

Torrero's has been a family favorite for over 15 years, so it's no wonder when we are visiting the Raleigh/Cary area we try to sneak in a visit! The salsa has a great flavor enhanced by cilantro and Fajita Quesadillas are large enough to share.

It's always fun going to a locally owned restaurant. Please know the decor is nothing to scream about, but the staff is friendly and the service is quick. Go on a Friday night and hear a little guitar...but the best part is ordering the house fish tacos, they are delicious . Let's face it American Mexican prepared food is made... More

My family of four have been going to this restaurant for the past 7 years and we have never had a bad experience. It's a down to earth restaurant and very cosy, reasonable priced with large portions of food. The people working here are always friendly and helpful. If you are looking for nice Mexican for, this is the place... More

After our adult Spanish class, some of the other students and I go to El Torero's for lunch. The staff is always friendly and efficient, the food is plentiful and delicious, the prices are very reasonable, and the atmosphere is very warm and hospitable.

After reading other reviews of Torreros, I really had high expectations (maybe too high?). However, unfortunately, they fell short. First, the good. The chips and salsa were really good (some of the better salsa I've had at Mexican places around raleigh) and the service was excellent. Always had drinks refilled, and the food was brought out fast (which was surprising... More

This is my FAV Mexican place to eat! Their salsa is made fresh, chunky, with lots of cilantro, it is addicting! Their margaritas are good, not watered down like most places. If you want Mexican, GO HERE!

If you go to Torero's do yourself a favor and get something beyond tacos, burritos, chalupas, etc. Try some of their specialties and you won't be disappointed. If you order the same old stuff you probably won't see much of a difference between them and Tres Maguyues, El Dorado, etc. Try something like the Carne Asada, Mar y Tierra, Tortilla... More
