“Great Mexican in Durham”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We visit family every year in Durham and dinner our first night here is always at Torero's. It's very good quality Mexican food in a quaint and friendly spot. I usually have the enchiladas and they are very good, and the prices are right as well. I would recommend this for couples and families.

“A Durham tradition that has slipped a bit”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Some kind of family fallout has forced some of these restaurants to shuffle ownership but they still churn out decent Mexican food. I prefer the dinner dishes to tacos and burritos The guacamole is OK, nothing special. We use them for catering every year and Reuben and his crew deliver promptly and with great aplomb. We appreciate you guys.

“Just OK”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

If your palate can only stand what passes for Mexican food at most places, then you'll like Torero's. The price is right and the food is well prepared, just not very authentic or imaginative.

“The Only Good Mexican Food We've Had on the East Coast”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We were almost scared off when the chips and salsa came out. The chips tasted like old frying oil and the salsa just didn't taste like salsa. We were already disappointed but then our plates came out. They looked great...not sloppy or boring like most Mexican dishes. The chicken was very tasty in all our meals. Great rice and guacamole! Overall, the food was very good. Five stars if it weren't for the awful chips and salsa. The prices are a bit more than the typical Mexican place but still very reasonable especially considering children eat free with adults 3 nights out of the week.
