El Toreador Review

Went there for lunch with my co-workers. We had a group of 10 people and we were seated in a large table close to the window. I had the red enchiladas with carnitas that came with beans, rice, guacamole and pico de gallo salsa. The portions were more than enough and I shouldn't of have eaten so... read more

We had no idea what to expect at El Toreador, but were more than pleasantly surprised. They make their own mole sauce, the food was really delicious and this family friendly restaurant is one we would frequent if we lived nearby.

I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years, the reason, it is consistent and has been for all these years, The prices are reasonable, the food portions, flavor are spot on. I have tried many Mexican restaurants over the years, this is the only place to go if you want good food and Drinks. Highly Recommend it!!

Close to home favorite for Mexican food in Redmond. The staff is very friendly and the service is superb. I tried something new - the Baja fish tacos and they were delicious - the creamy chipotle sauce complemented the halibut and cabbage. And they always have a great selection of comfort foods like cheese tamales and chicken enchiladas served on... More

we were able to walk here from our Residence hotel. We really enjoyed the authentic menu items and the prices were very good. The area around this restaurant and other local eateries is all chewed up with road work so parking can be a challenge but did not detract from our meal or enjoyment.

Small place, but fantastic service and great food. I had the enchilada's verdes, best I've had. Great margarita's too. Per my observations, many locals frequent this restaurant.

Not fancy, but very authentic, reasonably priced and clean. Parking can be a challenge, so be prepared to drive around a bit, but worth the inconvenience. Small parking lot in the back. They need to improve the back door entrance, but once inside, you'll be greeted promptly and courteously. My choice is always the #10 - two tacos, pinto beans... More

I had a shredded beef taco; DELICIOUS!!! Their guacamole is fresh and sooo tasty! Their chips are more like pita chips but really good. The taco shell is thick like that too which is the only thing I didn't like.

Dinner last night after a long cruise, great to come back and have a professional, friendly wait staff. Food was excellent service was great. The only thing that I saw was under one of the table it looked like it could have been cleaned a little better. My wife and I both thought the food was great and a reasonable... More

Eating here for over 15 years. It is my family's "go to" Mexican restaurant. Every dish is delicious and served piping hot. Service is quick and staff is very friendly. The most authentic Mexican food in Redmond!
