Been to El Torito plenty of times before, but I do not really like having to only order the Brunch. I feel as a customer, we should have the option of eating what we like and not having to pay $17.99 to eat a minimum. I understand that it also comes with bottomless mimosas, but when driving a family to... More

I highly recommend El Torito for it's authentic food, huge portions, and excellent waitstaff. The best dining experience I've had in awhile.

A group of us had lunch at El Torito yesterday and used their two-for-one buffet coupons. The server, Cody, was attentive and helpful and the manager stopped at every table to ensure all was in order which was unexpected and a first for me in a chain restaurant! The soup, salad, and hot offerings were good and well worth the... More

Your local Taco Shop has better/fresher food. This was the second time in a row the food was bad. The time before we were served refried beans that had a crust on top. Will never go back.

Have always enjoyed going here for the guacamole prepared at tableside and the fajitas. Throw in a margarita or two and you have the makings for a good tasting South of the border meal.

We had our Christmas Day lunch at El Torito, and while our meal was tasty, it did not overwhelm us. Since we arrived at their opening time, it was quiet and appeared very clean. We ordered a side of guacamole, which was prepared tableside. It includes chopped jalapenos, which can vary from mild to hot. We ordered it medium heat... More

Ate lunch with the family here. Over all restaurant was not very clean. The restrooms were filthy, floors looked like they had not been mopped in a long time. Trash was full. Just not a clean environment. Service was slow and inattentive. Food was ok, nothing to get excited about. Some of the glasses our drinks were served in were... More
