After my review a little more than a year ago, I made the mistake of going back to El Toro again for more pain.
I was seated promptly and the requisite chips and salsa arrived after a delay. The salsa was a little spicy for my taste and the chips were warm, not hot.
Based on a reaction from my last visit that was highlighted by some seafood dish in a white cheesy sauce, this time I ordered the vegetarian combo with a quesadilla made of grilled vegetables, a side of Mexcian/Spanish rice, sour cream and guacamole and shredded lettuce all served on the same plate.
One thing I must say is that the quantity of food served as well as the value for money in terms of sheer quantity is excellent in this restaurant. I made it through half the quesadilla and gave up. The filling had some strange tasting sauce and the mushrooms had been grilled black and tasted of carbon.
I was greeted at the checkout with that old greeting from the last time a year and a half ago that irritated me then, and also from the same person, "Hey buddy, how was everything" like I was some long lost friend of the hotel staff.
The bottom line, is that if you are interested in food quantity, not particular about great Tex-Mex, or Southwestern or any specific style of food, the El-Toro will not disappoint. But if you are looking for a elegant and fine dining experience for Mexican, Southwestern, Tex-Mex or some particular style that you have enjoyed elsewhere and want to recreate, this is not the place.
