Glad we went

Like most reviewers have said this is a really good place. The menu has a huge selection, and it wasn't just the standard Mexican fare.

Seen better days and places! As we pulled into the parking lot, something was quite amiss, no cars! Being 5:30 P.M., you'd expect some one here, but we were all alone. The building looks as though once was a Pizza Inn, now painted a std., shade of Mexican gold. Once inside, the space is separated by an oversized yet stately... More

The food was actually very good, but the server wasn't good, I felt like I was bothering him with my request. The management should look into this.

On the good side, the food was very good. The staff and servers, though, left a lot to be desired. They didn't have a clue about proper attention to the needs or desires of the customer, from the minute you walk in, to the minute you walk out. If you can handle this, though, the food is good, so give... More

The Torreros Mexican Restaurant in Erie, Pennsylvania is the best restaurant in the region. There are so many choices and all of them are delicious! The price is cheap. Anyone can afford it. The restaurant itself is a typical sit down restaurant where servers serve you with a smile. One of these servers is quite funny. He makes everyone laugh.... More

When in Erie, my wife and I will pick Torero's most of the time and sometimes we will just go to Erie to eat at Torero's. The Mexican pizza appetizer is super.

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

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 chimichanga and an enchilada,... 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
