I agree that the chips were tough & the queso to be skipped. BUT, everything else is way above average. Tried 3 different enchiladas each with a different sauce, ranchera, verde & mole with rice & beans, all excellent. Another trip recently, I tried the Plato Vallarte, shrimp & tilapia with grilled veggies, onions, peppers. Again, very good. Want to... More

My family eats here often! We love it! Food is always great and service is always fast and friendly. We always feel welcome! You also can't beat free margaritas.

Chips were thick and hard tasted like Fritos. Queso looked & tasted like cheese wiz. Fajitas were just okay, but the tortillas look like they were store-bought. I do have to say that the tea was excellent. I will not return to this restaurant anytime soon.

Had not been here in a couple of years. Tried it for lunch and it was the same predictable food- not great, not bad. Very reasonable prices.

Finally, a quiet Mexican food Restaurant! We were looking for a different place to eat, spun the preverbal wheel and decided on El Torrito since it was reviewed as good AND quiet. I love small town places and do not judge a "book by its cover". The atmosphere was great, service excellent, and food was just okay. Being able to... More

We live in Cleburne and frequent El Torrito often. They have excellent chips & site-made salsa. The food is always fresh and well prepared, and the staff is some of the most friendly we've ever encountered. If you come to Cleburne, it's a must try!

The food has been good every time we've been (about once every two weeks). You can't beat the free beer/margarita either:). It's the best in Cleburne for sure.
