Chicken was tough and chewy. And chips tasted stale. But rest was good. Service was great. Rest of food was good. In my opinion for quality of food. It is over priced. But was by hotel so convenient.

I hadn't eaten at El Torito for 20 years since I moved to Arizona. This place didn't disappoint. If your in the area it's an awesome place for Mexican food.

caught them on a buy one get one day for the lunch brunch.. The wait was about 15 minutes but is was right at lunch time for the local workforce. The brunch is a great deal as is but 1/2 price it was fantastic.

When I have a craving for some good Mexican food this is the place I go. They have great chips and salsa. The table side guacamole is the best. I always enjoy their cheese enchilada. Wednesday's are all you can eat
