“Good Menu, Excellent tortillas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

They make the tortillas at the restaurant and bring them hot. Much healthier choice than the typical fried nacho chips and the salsas that went with them were quite good. Service was excellent. Food was very good. I'd recommend eating there just for the tortillas!

“Good food, good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a good place for Mexican food with a good variety of good tasting food available. The cost is reasonable and the atmosphere for dining is fine for dining as there is a large, separate bar area that also allows dining. Enjoy!

“Outstanding Mesican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Had dinner at El Torito Grill a couple of weeks ago and as always the food was outstanding. Unfortunately, they seem to be understaffed so service was not up to their usual standard. It is a shame that they have a name so similar to El Torito which is very mediocre. Most people think that it is the same chain restaurant, but of course the two could not be further apart in food quality.

“Fine Dining Ole!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

It was quiet on a Sunday afternoon about 4:00 pm. Service was very good and the dinners were delicious. I had the best margarita I've had in several years. Not cheap but worth every penny.

“LOVE THE SUNDAY BRUCH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Great selection of Sunday Brunch. We love the salsa, it is spectacular. The warm tortillas are a nice touch. The tableside guacamole is spectacular. We love the chicken and shrimp fajita salad, the dressing is sweet and savory. Service is always great with a warm welcome.
