“Convenient Location, Freshly Prepared Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Terrific Salads, Great Salsa and Chips, Margaritas are a nice treat! Staff is friendly! Quick service. The grilled chicken for the salad was nicely seasoned, some of the best that I've had in some time. Nicely decor.

“good eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We enjoyed a combo plate with chicken enchiladas, rice and beans. The background music was traditional Mexican favorites.

“Popular Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Seems to be chock full of "regulars" who knew each other and it was an enjoyable experience with the exception of my meal being average. Mainly because of the meat, I guess, but I have no complaints about the service or anything else and it wasn't as bad as some or as excellent as others. Nice ambiance too.

“Solid, tasty, affordable, plentiful Mexican off the highway (52)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

Much like your favorite non-chain mexican restaurant in your typical midsize city, El Torero Mexicano serves the prerequisite basket of warm tortilla chips and satisfyingly spicy salsa and sizable portions. The food is reliably tasty to the non-expert palate. We were looking for "real" affordable food just north of Winston-Salem just off the highway (52) at 9 pm and were not disappointed. Service was very good and our food came quickly. With the typical allotment of fast food and chain restaurants at that exit (University Park), this satisfied our need for a decent meal after the barren drive from Charleston WV to Winston-Salem.
