I always get the chicken quesadillas and a strawberry margarita. I love everything about El Toro. The food is hot and the drinks are cold. Keep up the good work! :)

Love the food there. Prices a little high. Don't like the crowds and noise. Take out good but they charge extra take-out fee.

Food is consistent and always flavorful. Plenty of chips and salsa served when you sit down and more will arrive soon. Wait staff friendly and helpful.

The service was fast and the food was wonderful - we had chicken fajitas, tortilla soup and chicken enchiladas. More food than you can eat. The free ice cream cone was a favorite with the kids.

I went here for lunch with 2 co-workers while visiting the area. We all thought the chips and salsa were horrible. The food was okay at best (I had tacos, one co-worker had fajitas and another had a burrito) and we call came to the same conclusion - they were so so. The only good part was that you can... More

While El Toro had a lot of business on the Saturday night we were there, I found the food only average. Now, I don't consider this a bad review, but I didn't see any outstanding entrees in those that were ordered by my group. The service from our waiter was quite good.

The mexican food here was very good. i was surprised because you can usually tell how good the food's going to be based on their salsa-- and the salsa was more like Pace Picante than the good salsa i'm used to-- but the fajitas were great! i also recommend having the margarita in the boot shaped cup-- you get to...
