On a friends recommendation I visited there for Tuesday Dollar Taco night. Bad choice. The restaurant is nicely decorated and fairly crowded and has a Mexican feel to it, until the food arrives. I had two Tacos which were very small and had next to nothing in them, a bit of lettuce and tomato with the beef and pork meat... More

This is favorite of my family, there are a few dishes here that are prepaired better then other Mexican resturants in the area, The chicken and rice is one of those dishes. Always busy so if you go for lunch give yourself a little time.

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

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
