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.

El Toreo is off a busy hwy 75 and 200. You have to access it by going east on the hwy.It is the best Mexican restaurant in Ocala and has been in business for a long time. They have a bar in the middle for single diners and seating for parties on the side. I think it is consistently very... More

Just after the prime lunch crowd, ordered from the lunch menu. Hubby got a Chix Burrito/beans/rice and I thought a Taco Salad sounded good.

I brought my group of 50 clients for dinner and we all have the time of our lives. The food, the service, the ambiance, the drinks... Everything was perfect. We'll be back!

Stopped for lunch. They make chili reillenos different from any other I have had which was not a plus. Taco on cold not very crispy shell. Beans and rice were very good. Decent service and attention to patrons. While the food wasn't top notch, I would give it a second try and order different items.

Got there late evening. Dining room was so loud that OSHA would have shut it down if it was a factory. Went to outside open air area - no piped in music, but apparently this is the place the young kids with fast cars come to squeal their tires on the speed bumps. Area was full of un-bussed tables. Waitress... More

This establishment serves average Americanized wanna be Mexican food. It is acceptable if that is what you want to eat, but do not expect anything "Really Mexican" .
