It's a two story resturant

Main thing I love about this place is their chicken and beef nachos with sour cream with a side of horchata. This resturant having an upstairs gives it a cool/different feeling then the rest.

Food was good and portions plentiful. We ordered medium margaritas that were huge and delicious. Carne asada was on the dry side. Homemade salsa and chips were very good as was the chicken with chorizo - staff very friendly, no waiting for seating in this two story restaurant

I have been here several times. The food is great, the price is perfect, and the staff is friendly. I like the atmosphere as well. This is a large restaurant with two floors, and a deck. 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.

Whenever we're in town, we go to this place. As big fans of Mexican cuisine (as you can tell from my other reviews), we do a LOT of Mexican food. This place has good food at a good value. My only complaint is that you can't get tacos al pastor here but everything else is great! This spot is also... More

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.
