We went to this place between 2 pm and 4 pm and they were featuring two orders of ribs for the price of one. One was more than enough for one person, so we ate for a couple of days. The ribs weren't the absolute best I've had, but they were very good.

Had the ribs a couple times during our two week vacation. They were awesome. Also had a burger, which was incredible. Service was good. Beer was ice cold. Coudos to Cesar behind the bar. Very accommodating to the customer. They come and ask if there is any particular sporting event we wanted to watch. Will no doubt be back to... More

They were great--they were tasty and fall off the bone-- cole slaw was good- service wasn't so good- price wasn't too bad- $189 pesos for half rack- came in at 4:30 so just missed the 2 for 1. I would go back there again for the ribs and another reviewer said fish and chips? Yum.

It was very busy but our service was fast and friendly. The 2 for 1 promo is an excellent deal. My other favorite dish is the fish and chips which is served with excellent tartar sauce.

We live full time in Vallarta and have been going to El Torito for almost 16 years, but it has changed hands and it is now horrible. Our waiter, an arrogant young guy by name of Emanuel, was rude beyond words. When I when to the john he actually asked me if I was lost. The ribs are under-cooked. And... More

Most hotel televisions in Mexico have 2 or 3 English channels and of those not many have a sports channel . As every red blooded Canadian knows, leaving the great white north for a precious week or two of Mexican heat , beer and nachos , while losing touch with Hockey night in Canada, can be a little traumatic ....

This is a great place! Let's face it, it's a sports bar. But it serves excellent food at a reasonable cost with great service. My wife and I were there on Friday evening for the second time this month in old PV. I'm a 70 yr old retired air force vet (Canadian) still have a good appetite, my wife, not... More
