We live close-by and have enjoyed this great Mexican restaurant for years now. Good food, good service, reasonable prices and fast, reliable meals. Never disappoints. :-)

You can choose to eat upstairs, or outside. Everything is very clean and well kept. The food has a lot of flavor, and comes... More

We we looking for some mexican food that was not Taco Bell. This looked like it would do the trick. I was pleasantly surprised that we have EXCELLENT service (fast & friendly) and the food was great too. Just what you might expect from a typical Mexican restaurant which serves authentic food.

El Torero is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Piedmont area of NC. The menu has a wide variety of items - takes a while to decide, but you won't go wrong with whatever you choose. Staff are great and very attentive. Food and service are excellent and consistent from visit to visit.

El Torero is my all-time favorite Mexican restaurant in Winston-Salem. I have never been disappointed with the food or waitstaff -- both are always great. The food is always fresh and hot and the waiters are efficient and attentive.

Terrific Salads, Great Salsa and Chips, Margaritas are a nice treat! Staff is friendly! Quick service. The grilled chicken for the salad was nicely seasoned, some of the best that I've had in some time. Nicely decor.

We enjoyed a combo plate with chicken enchiladas, rice and beans. The background music was traditional Mexican favorites.
