First time eating at this El Torito in Ontario. The fish tacos were supposedly Mahi Mahi, but were just the size of a large French fry -- and I couldn't tell if it was fish as it was deep fried beyond recognition. The fajitas contained old, burned vegetables, which spoiled the taste of the meat. The rice was too salty;... More

Excellent food and service. We started with the guacamole made at our tableside. It was fabulous! My husband had steak fajitas and I had the chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce and both were delicious. Our server was very efficient and knowledgeable on the menu items. Will definitely come back again.

We come to this Mexican restaurant quite frequently, as it offers BOGO lunches real often. We always opt for the buffet lunch, which has gone up in price to $11.99, but when you are getting one for free, who can complain? The buffet has been reorganized to more attractively display the items. There is someone making tacos and, I believe,... More

Grabbed dinner here with a couple of colleagues after a long day. We were only in town for one night, heading to the airport early the next day. Service was great, even though we were taking our time, drinking beer and talking. They weren't to busy, so I guess we weren't holding up the table. I had Carnitas Michoacan, that... More

I have been coming here for several years, since I work in the area. I had always enjoyed the lunch buffet - nice variety, tasty food. Recently, I was very surprised to see that the buffet has undergone a major transformation! The presentation looks amazing! They used to have steam trays for the hot food. Now, they have beautiful bowls... More

Seemed I was 30 years too old to fit in. Upbeat music, young folks of all races, get ups, attitude seemed to meet at the bar. Loud, group oriented, very active barkeeps. Go early and its the calm before the storm. Lots of great food in main restaurant with specials every night. Very busy, active, hoppin place.

They put way too many ingredients in the guac.... Mexico is a big country. Perhaps their cooking here is from a region i m not familiar with. The drinks were good. I didn't bother to order anything else as I feel if you start with guacamole and its not right, don't bother with the rest of the menu. Nice waiter.... More

The Ontario / Rancho Cucamonga area has two El Torito restaurants but this location has a dance floor and a DJ during happy hour. This restaurant attracts a diversity of people and is located near the Ontario business district. So far, I have had a great experience dining here with friendly service and good food. No matter which El Torito... More
