good value, fun atmosphere

Lots of food for low prices. Cheese dip (they didn't call it queso?) was very good. Liked the colorful vibe & service was attentive & thorough.

Don't let the outside appearance fool you. This family owned Mexican restaurant is a great place to go to satisfy any craving you may be having. The burritos are full and flavorful, the fajitas are served sizzling hot, and the enchilada supreme is my personal favorite. The drinks are all reasonably priced, with pitchers of your favorite draft beer the... More

We really like this place. Good chips and salsa tonight. Good service. Tried their chiropollo and it was ok. I usually get their chicken grande quesadilla. We will be back.

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.
