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.

Went here on Cinqo De Mayo. Very busy. Got a nice table. The drinks and food were cheap but SUPER good. Well worth the money. Would go back when in town.

Had supper there last night. It was typical "Mexican" food offerings and the menu is vast. You should be able to find something good to eat on the menu. Chicken fingers, steak, nachos, tacos, etc. The service was fast and friendly. I had nachos supreme and it was delicious. My daughter had the chicken quesadilla which was accompanied by a... More

Very good food for the money. Service is second to none. But from my experience the Wheelersburg location is the best by far.

The visit was fine until about halfway through my meal. When my waiter refilled my drink it tasted absolutely terrible. Upon further inspection I found food in it. I will never eat here again.
