Food is always superb and reasonable in price. Service sometimes lags especially over last few months.

“Good, fresh, quick Mexican”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Friendly staff, quick service, good food. I'm not usually a fan of mexican chain restaurants, but this El Toro (the only one I've been to) provides a great dining experience. I tend to stay away from dishes that are smothered with cheese and refried beans. They have several entrees that fit in the healthier, more authentic category and have even more flavor than the tex-mex versions. Even when they are crowded, the wait is still short for your food. The chips and salsa come quickly when you arrive!

“Great Mexican”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

We have "dined" at Mexican in Mexico, Texas, California, and the South West.
Everyone knows that "Mexican" might mean anything.

El Toro is the "real deal."

Owned and staffed by Mexican legals.

The variety of the menu is great as is the food and service. El Toro has doubled in size during the past year, and still draws a large crowd of Bellbrook and Sugarcreek police and fire employees.

Just do not know why folks will drive 1/2 mile to a local U.S. Taco Place when the real deal costs no more.

“Good food, great price, no hassles”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

I ate here with a group of people from church. The waitresses English was a bit broken but that makes it a bit more authentic. They start you out with some chips and salsa right when you sit down. All our orders and drinks were taken quickly and the food came out faster than most restaurants. I'm no expert on Mexican food but it seems pretty authentic to me. One of the best parts is the price. You can get a quality dinner during dinner hours for $6-10 dollars. I'm sure I'll be back.

“OK Mexican”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

We have a lot of respect for the native Mexican owners and servers.
Draws a huge lunch crowd because of low prices.
This restaurant has expanded in recent years.

We have to be very careful in any Mexican restaurant because of calories and fat content.

My wife and I will order the shrimp plates at $10.00 and a Mexican beer.
