“Hola!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Have been eating at both downtown Renton and Highlands Toreros for years....and frequently. We eat there at least twice a month. The food is usually good and the portions generous. The homemade flour tortillas are great. Chips are sometimes wonderful and fresh, sometimes less so; but the baskets are refilled as often as you'd like. The salsa is consistently good. The tacos, burritos and enchiladas are all good, but not memorable. I really like the mole, though, and usually the chili Rellenos are great. Margaritas are tasty and inexpensive. The waitstaff doesn't change much at either location and is usually very friendly and efficient. However, occasionally they are understaffed and wait times increase substantially. We don't mind because it's a comfortable neighborhood restaurant where your business is valued and the food is consistently good and fairly priced.

Thank you for the great review! We are proud to have a good balance between our bar which includes the TVs and always the best sporting events on and our family dinning area which is fun for the whole family!

“Good Food and Service”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We went here for an early Friday night [before 5pm] dinner. Service was friendly from the moment we walked in the door. We were escorted to our table and our orders were taken - and then the chips and salsa were brought out. The were homemade and very good. The chips were crispy and not salty [which store-bought chips have an abundance of] and the salsa had some real kick to it. Too much kick for me and they got me some much milder salsa.

The food was all very good. I had the Tijuana taco salad. It had the right balance of temperature, spice/taste, and textures. All meals were good - even the hambuger [one of our group is not adventurous to say the least].

The location is easy to find - on the west side of Rainier, .5-1 mile south of Renton Municipal airport.

Reviewed January 15, 2013

Food was okay not the best but came in fairly quickly and hot. The ambience was as good as any good Mexican restaurant can be.

“Horrible Food”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

There is very little to describe here other than HORRIBLE. The food is flavorless, and usually floating in a large amount of grease!
