“Our favorite”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

This is my family's favorite Mexican restaurant on the Eastside. The Verde Enchilads are the best around. They bring 2 kinds of salsas with the homemade chips when you sit down. Alsways efficient and pleasant service. Couldn't be happier with the place.

“Loved This Place For 30 Years”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is the first place we return to after traveling, every family birthday, any time for any reason. The food is always delightful. The crab enchiladas are great, they have a nice variety of vegetarian dishes and they can make it vegan too.

All the meat dishes are goodf, kids love the cheese enchiladas, the taco salad is delicious. It's just all good. Great margaritas too.

“Don't miss the Potato Tacos”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

Tasty Mexican cuisine in the heart of downtown Redmond. El Toreador is a local joint with good food, fast/friendly service, neighborhood atmosphere, clean restrooms and parking behind the restaurant. Try the chicken fajitas and Shrimp Mexicano. The main reason we make the semi-quick run over from Seattle is for their potato tacos: traditional taco preparation except the protein's replaced with a mashed potato filling. The chef adds a little corn and seasonings that make for a delicious taco you won't find in many other spots.
