Really Good Mexican Food

These folks seem to take pride in what they prepare for their customers. I've never been served anything here except top quality and delicious food. The atmosphere is great too!!!!

We had delicious food and drinks. Took a bit to get service and drinks, however, once it was noticed we had better service the rest of the adventure!

We go to Toro Loco about 2 times a month. The service is fast and prices are good. They also have a full service bar. We've never had a bad meal or service.

We have been to Toro Loco many times since it open several years ago. The quality of the food and service is always excellent. Plan on going on the 3rd Thursday of the month for the band with live music.

My wife and I ate here twice over a weekend visit. The food was a little pricier than similar restaurants we've been in, but the food and service were excellent.

We are regulars at Toro Loco and have NEVER been disappointed. The prices are quite reasonable, and the food quality consistently good and in ample portions. The service is simply second to none in Portsmouth. The friendly staff never lets you reach the bottom of your beverage cup or lets you run out of chips or salsa. Service at lunch... More

I go to Toro Loco in Portsmouth a couple of times a month for the past few years and have never been let down. The service is always prompt and the food is always very good! The atmosphere is always festiv and the restaurant is always crowded. Can't go wrong if you want good Mexican food.
