“Very Good Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

They have a wide variety of menu selections. The food is good, service is good and the drinks even better. Good place to take a group of people for an enjoyable time while you eat.

“Good food, worst service ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2010

We have eaten at various El Toritos in CA and always have the problem of poor service. This one is no exception. We have a large family and you'd think putting down a basket of chips and salsa wouldn't be too hard for a waiter--WRONG. We waited and waited and waited. Finally got some chips but then had to wait again to place the order since he disappeared even though we were ready to order. Had to ask for more chips, more water, more ice tea--all from various staff who were wandering aimlessly by, not seeming to do a thing since the place wasn't busy. The waiter finally came back but didn't bring a thing. It was awful!
