My wife and I travel for our job and we eat in a lot of restaurants all the time. We seldom eat at the same place twice due to our shcedule and job demands. We were really impressed with El Toro Loco because it has everything you could possibly want in a Mexican restaurant. Pros: Great food! Low prices! (example:... More

I would rate this 3.5 stars. The shabby but brightly decorated interior provides character. Booths are well-worn and the decor celebrates the eponymous bull. Could be a bit cleaner. The prices are amazingly modest for the amount of food served. Food is good, chips fresh and salsa tasty, but I was disappointed not to be able to order any of... More

We visit El Toro Loco multiple times a week, the whole wait staff knows us and knows what we want. The food is incredible. I recommend this Mexican restaurant to everyone I know. Prices are great too.

Salsa is, to me, a good indicator of how good a Mexican restaurant will be. Is it fresh? Is the salsa too salty? Let's just say the salsa at El Toro Loco is excellent. Our toddler would drink it if we let her! We go every few weeks. The food is good. I highly recommend the Choripollo. I haven't seen... More

The food is consistently good and is a great value. My wife and I ate dinner for $20 and it included drinks. The service was excellent and we will return soon.

There are so many Mexican restaurants in the area, was glad to have found this one! My wife and I had a very tasty and plentiful meal for under 20 dollars, including drinks,( sodas). Will be going back again soon.

I don't know about the expectations or experience of others... Mine was, by far the best--keying in on why I came in the first place--to try it out and see if I could find a place that reminds me of southwest Texas. Well, success, and more! I ordered the lunch fajita plate. It was similar to others in the look.... More

Having grown up in Southern California and taken a few trips across the border (and not just into Tijuana), I consider myself a reasonable critic of Mexican food. Having moved to the East Coast almost 10 years ago, I have found two problems: a lack of GOOD/authentic Mexican food and PRICE (Mexican food is typically street food and should cost... More

This is by far the worst place I have ever been to. Not just for a Mexican restaurant, but overall. The fajitas were not made with any form of steak what so ever, the meat tasted like bottom round roast. The Chimichanga’s had very little shredded meat inside and the used potato and carrot as filler. The rice was dry... More
