The selection on the menu is good. The vegetables with the shrimp were perfect - still crunchy. And the shrimp was just right. The salsa actually tasted of fresh herbs. (That didn’t come out of a jar.) I really appreciated the iced mugs for the...More

El Toro was a great recommendation and evening out with friends. They have a wide variety of menu options and tasty margaritas! We tried the Black Margaritas made with black tequila. Highly recommend this adult beverage if you are in the mood for a margarita!

My family stopped by after visiting the Veterans Cemetery. We were impressed there were a lot of vegetarian choices on the menu. However, once we started with the too-thick chips and watery salsa, we should have cut our losses and left. We ended up ordering...More

My family and I stopped here on the way home from exploring. The service was good. The food was just ok. The price was ok. I'd go back, but it's nothing memorable.
