This is a small chain only 3 or 4 restaurants (I think) we have 2 locations in Ocala. Friendly staff, great selection and good food. My favorites are taco salad, fajitas, and Chile Relleno.

This place is great. You never leave hungry. Large portions and at a decent price. They have coupons for everyday of the week. I used the weekday after 4 PM coupon which was buy one combination platter get one free.

Order the chicken as your meat source and you'll be happier than eating the creamed hamburger which had very little flavor. Refried beans are ok but the rice is dry.

No matter how you say it, the food at El Toreo on SR200 is very good. As soon as you are seated, the wait person brings a large bowl of complimentary tortilla chips and salsa (mild, hot or both). Service is prompt and friendly and food is served piping hot. We really enjoyed today's quesadilla lunch special washed down with... More

Portions of food were good especially the well-named grande burrito. However the margarita special was very weak drinks which could have been much better. Good was good though.
