I've been coming to El toro since I was a kid and I've always enjoyed it. Now as an adult with so many restaurants having poor service, El toro has become my FAVORITE Mexican restaurant! They always have such amazing service and delicious food for great prices. I have NEVER had a dissatisfied visit to El toro. Highly recommend this... More

I have lived in Chesapeake for 20 years and have never eaten here. Was always told it wasn't very good. I recently had gotten a gift certificate, so I decided to try it out. The waiter didn't speak the greatest English but got all of our complicated orders correct. The food was just ok. Got the fajitas and they had... More

Very good Mexican food. Cheese dip provide with the salsa was a nice surprise. Had the enchiladas which were delicious. Taco was just OK. Will come back again!

My mom and I ate here with my two daughters. I consider myself a native Virginian and I always took white sauce for granted. I have traveled far and wide in the lower 48 and I have never seen white sauce outside of Virginia. That was the main thing I wanted to eat (I was only going to be in... More

We are a family of 4 and we went to this restaurant after a day on the beach. We could not believe the prizes on the menu. So so incredibly reasonable. We have been in a lot of Mexican restaurants in different places and countries and the quality of the food here was simpy outstanding, not to mention the size... More

We have been going to El Toro Loco for about 8 years now. Mexican is my once a week go to cuisine. We've been to quite a few Mexican restaurants, but what keeps us going back to El Toro Loco; is the People. They remember you and what you typically order. It is a family owned business. The owner; as... More

Our grandkids had a school outing at El Toro Loco and had a good time. Being young...4 and 6...they are hardly capable restaurant critics, so on a recent visit they asked us to take them to El Toro Loco for dinner one evening. Our daughter-in-law warned us against this idea as she visited once with poor results. But, being grandparents,... More

There are a slew of Mexican restaurants in Great Bridge. They all have things that each does better than the other. For me I love their Grande Quesadilla with chicken. It's simple and always great.

Love this place. The food is authentic Mexican and well portioned. The service is always excellent and the prices are good. The chips and salsa are the perfect start when you arrive. They have a special room to accommodate a large group. The wait staff is an excellent group of people, making sure you are happy with your visit. This... More

While visiting by brother and his wife they took us to the El Toro Logo Mexican Restaurant after church. It was very busy but we were able to get seated easily and waited on quickly. They had very good value plates that were under $8 and the food was very good. Recommend you give this one a try!
