It is an average Mexican restaurant, nothing special, nothing bad. Prices were reasonable. They were crowded and noisy so service was slow. The food was average. Of course I live in Texas so Mexican Food has a standard to meet that I am used to.

El Toro had hair what my group was looking for when we visited. A diverse food and drink menu. I particularly appreciated the food items available that are not found at the average Mexican restaurant. For example, I had the fajita chimichanga. It was absolutely fantastic.

We have probably eaten at El Toro over 50 times since they have opened. On every occasion the food (try the sirloin Ranchero) and the service have been outstanding. Reasonably priced with a nice quite atmosphere. We always have my family (8 of us) and the tables are big enough that you all have plenty of room. We have one... More

El Toro has wonderful Mexican Food that is made with fresh ingredients and comes in generous proportions. You get to snack on fresh chips and homemade salsa while you wait for your food. In my opinion, the salsa is some of the best around!

We had a hard time finding Mexican food restaurants in the Dakotas so when the hostess at our motel recommended this we gave it a try. We split a single order fajita dinner and it was great as well as being huge. We loved it.
