Not only good but great plate presentation. The food is very colorful and creatively displayed. It's a little fancier than the regular El Torito.

We like the Torrance location as it has the Southwestern Cuisine. The complimentary tortillas and 3 kinds of butters/toppings are awesome. The food at the Torrance location is always good. They have a sampler platter for like $12.50 that has plenty of good food for 2 people with normal appetites. My wife and I split the platter and are full when we are done. Great place for family dining, lots of great menu items. Good value as well.

Love this place, great food. They start you off with freshly made tortillias a nice salsa and honey butter. They are amazing! Food is a southwestern twist, lighter and more flavorful than traditional Mexican. Torlilia sou is great Reasonable serving size and cheese isn't covering everything. Great meal. Good bar scene, friend servers

I took my family to this restaurant for Sunday lunch. There was absolutely no crowd in the restaurant and old looking interiors had doubts in my mind.

The server who was serving us was extremely knowledgeable about Mexican food,his suggestions were absolutely great.

Try Cilantro soup if you have a taste for it.

Excellant service! If you like outdoor mesquite grilled taste,thats what your gonna have at el torito grill., great tex/mex food and delicous margaritas!!! nice for couples,family,friends or solo. they even accomadate a private room in back for private parties or buisness meetings. FYI all you EL Torito Grill haters....if your a true mexican, you would know this food is more tex/mex NOT mexican. In conclusion "MUY BUENO!" :)
