Used to love coming here. Food is still good. But portions have gotten a lot smaller and food is overpriced. Also service is extremely SLOW! ! Plan on being here for awhile.

The food here was great and so was the service. We had tamales, carnitas michoacan, chicken chimichangas, and children's cheeseburger and hot dog. The carnitas michoacan is VERY spicy/hot, but delicious. The kids' food left something to be desired. The cheeseburger didn't taste good and the hot dog bun was pretty stale. The adult food was terrific! Good salsa and... More

Everything was perfect! Warm, delicious chips, tasty salsa, queso and guacamole. My husband ordered the guadalajara burrito and it was amazing! My cocktail design camerones was great, very fresh! We will definitely come back when we are in the area! Ask for Juan, he was our server and he was perfect too.

We LOVE El Toro, in Walton! It is very conveniently located to us, so we stop in often. While the food and drinks are always good, the people there are even better. It is a family owned restaurant and they honestly have to be the nicest, most genuine people ever! They are friendly and go out of their way to... More

I'm guessing that most people looking at this review will be like I was, traveling on I75 around lunch or dinner time. I was happy we chose it, it was some of the best Mexican I've ever had. Which maybe isn't surprising given that Walton, KY is widely considered the heart of Mex cuisine in the country. Seriously, some of... More

The menu is extensive and varied, the service quick and friendly, the portions substantial and the taste of the dishes was a delight. We have not... More
