A pleasant surprise!

During an overnight trip to Erie, I was going to pick up dinner at Qdoba until I saw this restaurant right next door. Turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Not great Mexican food, but very good. My waitress brought chips and salsa as soon as I sat down. A combination plate with a chicken... read more

I cannot visit Erie without hitting Torero's Authentic Mexican - my car just won't drive by without stopping. Authentic mexican and high quality at very reasonable prices - what could be better than that ?? I always have the macho burrito - and can barely finish it all. Our friend had the fajita burrito - wow - two meals in... More

This has become our "go to restaurant" because everything we've had, from tacos to more traditional fare has been very good. There are daily drink and food specials, and the prices aren't through the roof. Our drinks, whether we're having water or coke, to adult beverages are never allowed to go empty. The staff here take a tremendous pride in... More

One of the best Mexican restaurants in Erie, Torero's offers the usual fare. I particularly like the Chimi (which was on special yesterday) but their fajitas are good also. Try the Queso (cheese dip); it's excellent. We asked for a spoon and scooped some of the dip over our chimis for extra flavor. Margaritas are good; there's usually a beverage... More

My kids and ourselves pick Torero's almost always when on Peach Street. Their food is always fresh, hot and so delicious. Huge portions, plan on taking some home. Margaritas are awesome. My favorite entree is the steak fajita quesadilla, it is so good it's hard for me to order anything else, but when I do I'm never disappointed. The servers... More

I've had much better Mexican elsewhere, but not in Erie. I've been here 3 times so far and most of the food has been tasty. Very large portions, you definitely get a big meal for the money. Always had friendly servers. I definitely want to go back when ever I want to eat Mexican.

There are several great choices for Mexican food in Erie. Most are good. Some claim to be authentic. But if you want the best go to Torero's on upper Peach by Kohls. Every meal I have had is great. Large portions, most include rice and retried beans. Daily specials and cheap margaritas. Mexican beers on draft. Great servers too. You... More

I was not greatly impressed but I will start with the positives. A clean lively restaurant with plenty of business. I was a bit confused to why they were using cheddar cheese on many of the dishes so I asked. The bar tender said they use to have an authentic white Mexican cheese but the locals prefer cheddar cheese. Odd....... More

We stopped here on our way back to the Finger Lakes and so glad we did. The restaurant was bright, clean and inviting with very nice background music that wasn't too loud. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. The portions were just right. We will definitely return the next time we're in the neighborhood!
