“Great, Authentic Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Great service, friendly owners, delicious food. The enchiladas verdes with chicken was hot and fresh and tasty. The margarita was huge with just the right amount of lime but not too much. The owners came by to chat. The service was exceptional. But be warned about the portion sizes are they are huge...could be enough for two meals if you are a less than hearty eater. This place gets lively and busy. We were there on a Tuesday night around 7pm and it was hopping.

“Great place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Had lunch here - taco salad - and it and the service were really good. Serving size wasn't the biggest I've ever had, but there was plenty. Service was exceptional although the restaurant wasn't as busy as it has been on other occasions. Even on other visits, once with a very large party - probably 25 people - the service was quite good.

“Great service and great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We visited for an early dinner on a Saturday. There were 8 of us - a combo of family and friends. It was our first time to Torero's at The Landing in Renton. We were immediately impressed with the warm greeting we received. Our waiter was so personable and took great care of us. His English was a little to be desired, however, which led to confusion about the margarita I ordered. (It was supposed to be a virgin blackberry margarita but, instead, came as a regular flavor with alcohol.) As I hadn't had a drink in nearly 30 years (and it was very, very, strong), I could hardly breath after inhaling a huge gulp! All I could think was "what if I would have been a recovering alcoholic and had, possibly, just ruined my sobriety...yikes!?!? The food was delicious, though! The chips and salsa, the carne asada, the jumbo prawns, the beans, the rice, the burritos - even the coleslaw - were muy bueno!! I surely wish I could duplicate the seasonings on the prawns. I would be putting it on just about everything! We were thrilled to find that they have a tortilla maker (of the human sort - not a machine.) so the tortillas were, unsurprisingly, delicious! I will mention, also, that although we are Caucasian, we were dining with Hispanic friends who also loved the food! We will be back!

“Best Mexican Restaurant in the U.S.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We've eating at a lot of Mexican restaurants throughout the U.S. but none of them can compare to the local favorite here in Renton, WA.
The food and service are second to none. The Carne Asada is a family favorite but all of the menu items are terrific. The margaritas are great also.
If you come in during the weekday lunch time be prepared to wait, but it's well worth it. It's located near the Boeing Renton plant (they build 737's) and a lot of Boeing workers like the food too.
When you stop in, be sure to say hello to Veronica (she's the owner). Veronica is the daughter of the founder, Ted.
