“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

On our way home from the Keys we stopped at El Toro Taco for dinner. We were waited on by the father and son...salsa was very fresh...chips were good. Food came very quickly. The four of us ordered something different and no one was disappointed. The chicken in my enchiladas was fresh and delicious. There was no room for dessert. We were hesitant, but all agreed we would stop there again.....and the price was right.

“Good variety, great service.”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Nice family-owned restaurant with available vegetarian options. Not the best Mexican food we've ever had, but authentic and plentiful. Owners present and friendly, even bringing food to the table himself. Would definitely come again!

“Worst Mexican Ever”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Ok one thing folks need to know about this area is we dont have Mexicans we have Cubans and there culinary tastes are extremly different. El Torro stinks like musty mold. The food is disgusting and the service is rude, they suck!!

“OK, but can do better”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Written up in guidebooks, etc., as a good place for true Mexican food. Not bad at all, but we had better and less expensive food in two other local taquerias on the outskirts of town (see my other reviews). The downtown of Homestead is quite dead, so you're not really gaining anything versus staying on the outskirts anyway.

“excellent service and food”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Whenever we come back to Homestead, FL, we make a point of eating at El Toro Taco. The food is very good and the service is quick, pleasant and friendly.
We expect to come back next year again.
