El Toritos has wonderful ribs. Every Monday-Friday from 2;00-4;00 PM they have 2 for 1 ribs. For only 190 pesos you get two large plates of delicious ribs, french fries and cole slaw with a basket of bread! It has a sports bar atmosphere with games on tvs around the walls. The service was great, especially our favorite waiter Aaron.... More

Went here to watch the Seahawks play the Falcons and had their ribs which were perfectly cooled and had an excellent BBQ sauce. The coconut shrimp were also very good.
