Sat in the bar area. We had the lunch buffet. Food was hot and taste great. Wasn't too loud considering it was lunch time. Service was fast and very friendly.

Wasn't disappointed in the food, drinks or service. We had the macho platter and the sizzling platter which were both great, especially the steak taco and the beef barbacoa taco.....also tried a pomegranate margarita that was wonderful.

We came here late after a long day at California Adventure. Not big on chains but like their menu items. They were having a promo on margaritas so this was a big bonus! The waiter was very attentive and friendly. Cleanliness was good.

The food was okay. Service was decent. Drinks were the better of it all. Probably won't go back next time in town, but I wouldn't say it was a bad experience. It was alrighty!

Some El Toritos are great, not this one. Always mediocre food. Service is okay. Have been there several times, hoping the situation would improve, but regretfully, it hasn't.

Well, just happy hour, so the drinks were ok, food was pretty average to bad. Taco bar is poor. Very short happy hour menu, so not much there on that. The place needs a good cleaning, I would not go back due to the conditions...More
