If you are in Goldsboro and like Mexican food, Torero's is the place to go. Great bar atmosphere, good food, generous portions and friendly wait staff. The salsa is fresh and to die for!! The margarita's were excellent and we didn't even splurge on top shelf. This place would be great for a large group or just a dinner for... More

Large portions can be split between couples. Good happy hour specials at the bar. Plenty of TVs for sporting events.

We had 14 people and a limited time frame to eat (45 minutes). We called ahead- got a room and were greeted. We were able to order, eat, talk and pay all in about 45-50 minutes. Food was great. Portions were huge!!!!! Will always be a favorite if travelling in Goldsboro!!

I love the food here. The wait staff is usually very attentive. My favorite dish is the pollo a la crema. But of course I love the enchiladas too. The only thing I dont like is the salsa. It has too many onions and cilantro. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Our food was so good. Huge portions and great taste. The restaurant has a good atmosphere. My only complaint was the service. One came to our table with lipstick kisses on his face and another could not get off his cell phone long enough to refill our drinks and check on us.

If you want truly good Mexican cuisine, go downtown and visit this place. The food will not disappoint. And if you are vegetarian, they will accommodate you diet with things that are appetizing and delicious. Check them out for a good Mexican meal.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. When you compare the cost of your meal with the portion size of the meal; you will see that you are definitely getting your money's worth. I highly recommend this restaurant and am looking forward to our next visit there!

Food was good. I got the Mucho Burrito and it was huge, it tasted amazing and the salsa is fresh made as well as the chips.

Good food, good atmosphere, all around good place. I would however recommend that families or those with kids steer clear around Cinco de Mayo and Dia de Los Muertos as it can get a little crowded and hectic. My favorite menu item personally is their Burrito en el Huerto, or vegetarian cactus burrito for non spanish speaking.
