We met our daughter and grandson at the El Torito on Griffin Way for dinner. We were seated quickly enough, but from that point on, it was pure disappointment. 1 - Service was pitifully slow. After ordering our beverages and waiting a LONG time (15 minutes) the soft drinks and water were delivered. My margarita would not have happened if... More

Consistently good food and service, great taco bar with fresh made tortillas. Lots of other food and salad choices. Good selection of desserts for that sweet tooth. Go early gets crowded after 1130 am.

I just wanted one of their old El Torito Tostadas. Sorry, not on the menu. But our server Esperanza (that means HOPE... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. We got the spinach enchilada and veggie fajitas. They were very delicious! Quite pleased. . . . . . we'll be back again soon. Good service, place is clean and has nice ambiance.

Went to El Torito after driving from AZ. Had some yummy mini seafood tacos and white sangria. Our waiter Elliott was excellent.

Was on holiday visiting family and they took us here on our first night straight from the airport and a 9+ hour flight - it certainty brightened up my mood! We ended up coming back multiple times throughout our stay - nothing we tried disappointed. We even have nights at home called ''El Torito Nights''. The guacamole is the best... More

We hadn't been to an El Torito for ages but it sounded good. We stopped in at lunchtime on a Sunday. We walked inside and it was chaos! People standing everywhere waiting to be seated. We didn't have to wait too long but got seated in the bar. It was SO loud we couldn't have a conversation. We weren't given... More

Good Mexican food with very friendly staff. Prices reasonable. Full bar, drinks pricey but good. Not a noisy place, either
