Fast service and good Mexican food! Always a hot spot in Chillicothe. Large place can accommodate groups. Has a north room that can seat around 25, or call ahead of you have a group larger. Great for birthdays!

This place has good food and great prices. The staff are very friendly. It has been open the longest compared to any other mexican restaurant in the area. It was open when I ate there for prom 16 years ago! Great place

The food is good. Service is ok. Hard to understand some of the waiters.Their ventilation system isn't very good. Your clothes stink so bad when you leave the place. I wouldn't recommend eating lunch there if you have to go back to work.

Great chips and salsa I have never had anything bad here. It's always been very good and not too expensive.

Was glad to see the accommodations for my gluten free request. Chicken soft tacos on corn tortillas, with onion and cilantro were great and I didn't get any reaction. Chips didn't seem to have dedicated fryer so I avoided. But I didn't ask either.

This may be the only place in northern Missouri where you can get an actual green chili smothered burrito. Yes, 99% of the staff is illegal and sometimes difficult to understand, but the service and the food is great

It's Sat. night and we just finished an excellent meal at El Toro. We are traveling across Missouri and were looking for a good place to eat. I checked Trip Advisor--they've never steered us wrong yet--when I saw El Toro. We love Mexican food, so...More
