We ordered Pollo Supremo, Pollo Monterey, and Pollo Asado. Each dish was great. The chips and salsa were good too, a little spicy. Our waiter was very attentive and we were in and out very quickly.

We found this place by accident, I was skeptical about a Mexican restaurant in a mini mall. Boy was I wrong, we were served warm chips and salsa that was great and the main course was even better and large portions. Best Mexican food I have ever found. Staff seemed kinda shy but they were very eager to please.

Would have rated this place "poor" but the food and price were not too bad. The service however was horrible. Went there for lunch and the place was at best 3/4 full yet it took forever to get a waiter to take our drink and food orders. Seemed like forever to get our food and I guess you only get one basket of chips; asked for a 2nd but it never showed up.

This is probably the worst Mexican restaurant I've been to. The salsa was uninspiring, the rice was tasteless, the ground beef horribly bland, the queso too salty. They even managed to get the refried beans wrong. The Chili Relleno was missing the chili. Unbelievable. There is nothing positive to write about here, so I will stop while I'm still ahead.

Stopped in on Memorial Day. They didn't appear too busy at lunch but must have been short handed. We waited 30 minutes for our food and they brought my wife beef when she ordered cheese only Enchilada. We had waited long enough so she just ate it. The food we did get was not good. Then they never checked back for Drink refills. Bad first impression for El Toro.
