Excellent Nachos and Fajitas for lunch. Quick service with a smile. Cold beer and margaritas to wash it down with.

We ate at two mexican restaurants near the Silver Springs attraction and we liked this one best. The size of the margaritas was double that of other resturants we ate at and priced well.

Food is awesome. Great value. Friendly staff. Lunch specials are the best in town...always do "Quesadilla Wednesday."

Even bad mexican food at least has flavor. I orderred the steak fajitas. They were hot and sizzling and the little tortillas were warm, but the cut steak and peppers and onions were completely bland. And the meat was very chewy. The only thing that was decent was the salsa and the warm chips. So i ended up spooning the salsa on the fajitas just to give them some flavor. The only reason we popped in here is the nearby chillies was packed and had a 1 hour wait for a table and we had just checked into our hotel after driving all day. We should have just put our name on the list at chilies and waited.

We were in Ocala for a youth regional football tournament and were staying near El Toreo on SW 36th Ave. Apparantly, there are a couple locations in Ocala. The restaurant had the typical Tex Mex look and was clean. The server was attentive and very nice; he refilled our glasses before they were anywhere near empty. Chips and salsa were good, as was the cheese dip we ordered. We split beef fajitas which would have been great except for the lack of beef on the skillet. The grilled onions and peppers were delicious and I enjoyed my fajitas. It would have been nice if there was enjoy beef included to round out the taste. Prices were reasonable. I would have rated El Toreo good to very good if they hadn't scrimped on the meat.
