Run by Mexicans and is delicious. You will need a doggy bag because the amount of food is ample. Lines go fast. Great place.

Toro Loco is the best Mexican food in the area. As a local chain, the Portsmouth location is the best by far. It has bigger portions, better food, and a large staff. Better yet, it has Modelo on tap!

We had delicious food and drinks. Took a bit to get service and drinks, however, once it was noticed we had better service the rest of the adventure!

We go to Toro Loco about 2 times a month. The service is fast and prices are good. They also have a full service bar. We've never had a bad meal or service.

We have been to Toro Loco many times since it open several years ago. The quality of the food and service is always excellent. Plan on going on the 3rd Thursday of the month for the band with live music.

My wife and I ate here twice over a weekend visit. The food was a little pricier than similar restaurants we've been in, but the food and service were excellent. We wouldn't hesitate to come back when we're in town. You can tell the food and service must be consistently good because it was very crowded both times we ate... More
