Solid Good

One of our favorite Mexican places - sizzling hot fajita dishes and really good guacamole. Great service but can get a little busy at peak times.

Great service and always authentic Mexican with big portions. Love their drink specials. Ask for Victor who will make your visit memorable.

We were seated next to a stinky bathroom. Every time someone opened the door out wafted the smell of sewer gas. The manager refused to move us even though tables were available. We were celebrating my son's birthday. I will never eat there again. I hardly ever roast a restaurant but I've rarely been treated so badly.

Have eaten there 3 times. The first time we went as a group and the service was fairly quick and the food was good. 2nd time took Grand daughter...service was a little slower and the overhead light wasn't working so it was very dark in the booth they sat us. The 3rd trip was not the most satisfying. The food... More

This is one of our go to Mexican restaurants. There are a lot of food options as usual for Mexican restaurants. Service is good and quick. Flavors are good, not too spicy, but not bland.

This is a very good Mexican restaurant with a widely varied menu. The margaritas are tasty and the prices are low. It has a happy atmosphere and friendly staff. It is filled with families and couples and friends.

Torero's is typical of most Mexican restaurants found around the southeast with menu items being pretty consistent. Nothing really authentic compared to Mexican food found in south Texas say near Brownsville. Service was fast and friendly with no time wasted in getting the food out. The fajitas, soft tacos and salsa were really good. They do cater.

We go here often. Good, consistent, well priced, friendly. Service is always good with plenty of chips and salsa refills. Always crowded.
