We have eaten here previously and had great meals but the burritos last night were pretty average. They had not been baked sufficiently, the beef was decidedly mediocre, and proportions of salad to beef were all wrong. Burritos are only $10 on Tuesday nights so...More

Extremely disappointing. Went there with high hopes because of the reviews from various websites and pictures on their website. We ordered a vegetarian chimichanga which only had black beans on the inside and that's it. It wasn't even deep-fried (which is what a chimichanga is)...More

Great Mexican food, and all for a great price including the Margariatas. We had dinner on a Thursday night, which was quiet, but the service was great and the food even better.

Great food, excellent value for money. Everyone enjoyed their meals. They cater for kids and the meals were a good size and included a drink (love they offer milk). Adult meals are very filling and plates were licked clean. The staff are so friendly and...More

This is a great spot - a short stroll away from the river but still easy to get too from Southbank. The food and service was spot on.

We ordered from here through, 'gourmet deliveries' and reading the mixed reviews decided to give it a go. Disappointed to say the least. The rice was over cooked, the enchiladas tasteless and the beans sloppy and equally lacking in any flavour. For the extra $6...More

Been here a couple times now. Friendly staff, great food and reasonable prices. Authentic dishes plus the stuff you find everywhere. Decor is very simple but you don't get million dollar fitouts at these prices. Mojitos and Margaritas both good and at a fraction of...More

I am currently an exchange student from Miami (of Nicaraguan Descent) so I was looking everywhere for authentic latin food! Stumbled across El Torito and so glad I did! Food was very good, especially the El Torito cocktail! The staff was very friendly too and...More
