Very good Mexican food without the high price tag. Service is fast, but not so friendly. The servers don't smile. They are helpful if you ask a question, but they seem to be more engrossed in their duties that being cordial. This place does get crowded, especially on Saturdays. But if you want a quick Mexican meal, this is the... More

Food was in fact good. The service on the other hand was beyond sub par. After ordering we never saw the waitress again. Not to check on the food, not to refill the water (something expected when eating spicy, salty food), no bill... Don't bother asking for a manager unless you feel the need for attitude usually reserved for a... More

Almost before you sit down there is Salsa and Chips on the table along with water. Good service. The homemade salsa and guacamole dip are so good that since I live 3/4 of a mile from there I stop frequently for a take-home container. Of course, I take their chips along too.

Known as El "T" by the locals, this restaurant is a neighborhood gathering place. You can't go in without seeing someone you know. When the kids are home from college El T is usually one stop they always make.

We usually try all Mexican places when we are visiting a town, this was our second one in this area and it was certainly better than the first one we tried.

We went for our first dinner at El Torero on a Friday night because several friends love this restaurant. There was some confusion when we went in because it appears that you seat yourself here but there is no sign to indicate that. One of the staff eventually told us that we could sit anywhere. So we chose a table.... More

This little place is a great little nugget of a restaurant hidden in stone mountain. It's quite and quaint with great food. The people are friendly and most accommodating. The price is very reasonable with fast service.

The service is fast and friendly. Their food is priced right for all budgets. The shrimp enchilada is one of my favorites. Love their salsa on everything. NOTE: They close down at 2pm so don't try to get a late lunch.

It was just okay. It kind of takes a lot to impress me when it comes to Mexican food because 99% of the time it all tastes the same, and I'm always aware of the fact that I could cook as good or better at home for a fraction of the cost. There were five of us, and our bill... More
