Authentic. Excellent Mexican food cooked fresh and served by real Mexican people in trendy West End.
Nothing fancy, but genuine.

There aren't a lot of good Mexican restaurants in Brisbane but El Torito is one of them.
A very busy little restaurant at West End, it pays to book here, or you may be one of the many people who are frequently turned away (especially on a Friday or Saturday night).
The food is authentic, and the portions are huge!
Try the burritos. Beautiful.
It's BYO and it's fun.

Most authentic Mexican style restaurant we've ever seen in Brisbane.
Service friendly and efficient.
Very busy, even on a Tuesday night.
Extensive menu. Great food.
Servings good size.
Unfortunately not licenced, but bottle shops available close by.

Found this place on trip advisor, was impressed, needed 2 book in advance as the place is quite small & busy, staff were great, large portions, flavoursome & reasonably priced. We were extremely satisfied!!
