“El Torito has changed it's name to "El Charolais"”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

The name of this Mexican Restaurant has been changed, but it has the same owners, workers and food. We visited this restaurant based on the reviews on tripadvisor. It is located next to Kroger, and close to the University. We all enjoyed our food. I took the advise from other reviewers and ordered off of the authentic menu. The Pollo tacos were wonderful!

“This Place Hasn't Slipped”
Reviewed May 25, 2010

Saw that the last review was almost a year old. The value for the money here is incredible. As others have said, order off the one page menu that our waiter pointed out and described as "authentic Mexican". Everything we had was good, but the chorizo taco stood out. The atmosphere is fine for a restaurant in a strip mall, but probably not the place for a romantic dinner.

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 8, 2009

Seeing the great reviews made us try out this place. It was located in a strip mall so we were a little hesitant. Turns out the place has excellent food, large portions and is pretty inexpensive.

“Lots of food. Great price.”
Reviewed May 22, 2009

Went to El Torito for the first time tonight. It was great! I think it may be the first time I've taken a box home from a Mexican restaurant. We got drinks, food and flan for $23.00 and I have lunch for tomorrow.

We're leaving in four days, but I'd say its a safe bet we'll go back before then!

“The Best Around”
Reviewed July 9, 2008

The salsa and guacamole here are the best you'll find this side of the border. As others have side, order from the back of the menu. The authentic mexican tacos, (pollo), are the best that I've EVER had and they are super cheap too!
