All of the food I have eaten here has been excellent. The staff is friendly and you get a lot of food for your money. They have the best fajitas I have had actually. I would highly reccomend this place. You can eat outside if the weather is nice also.

Went here with friends and not only had a great time because the atmosphere was excellent, the food was amazing. The food arrived quickly & was piping hot. The staff was friendly and I would most definitely come back to this place again!!

Being from California, I am very picky on my Mexican food. This place gets it right. From the Del Mar Enchiladas to the Tamales. This is GREAT Mexican food just like they make in California. This is my new regular stop.

OK, I know real Mexican food. I have known about El Toro for many years, but not until recently did I "have" to go with a friends gathering. Of course, it is not purely authentic for those who have spent time in Mexico. However, the quality of the food was very good. You will get the same overly salted salsa... More

We checked Trip Advisor for dining suggestions and chose to stop at a Mexican Restaurant. Not all Mexican restaurants are created equal. El Toro Cantina exceeded our expectations. The food and service were both very good!! Try the Fajita Burrito!

My wife and I were in the area to attend a racing event and were looking for food other than burgers and fries. We found El Toro, hidden in a local shopping center and were glad we did. The menu is really extensive with so many options on it that I wanted to order. While we looked over the menu... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant the night before Thanksgiving and was pleasantly surprised. The meal was excellent. I got shrimp with rice and the shrimp were big and flavorful. The chips were only ok, which is why I gave it four instead of five stars. The Diet Coke was good too!

My colleagues and I go to El Toro regularly for lunch we like this place so much. They have a great selection on the lunch menu that it is always hard to decide what to get when you walk in. The best part about this place is the instant gratification of some excellent chips and salsa. It is definitely some... More

The menu had so many options on it that I wanted to order. There were the normal catagories, but that's where any similarities to other local Mexican restaurants ended. I had the Burrito del Mar. Grilled shrimp and crab (albeight imitation), with enough but not too much sauce on it. My guests had the fajitia salad and the pork enchiladas... More

Everything is great there! Whatever these ^people^ had to say about El torro being flavorless, are crazy. whenever it was not remodeled.i don't know what it was like. But i especially think one persons imparticular review is a pretty crappy one. You wouldnt know good Hispanic Mexican food even if they put it in the middle of your flavorless town... More
