I was in town for work and I was able to visit my family for dinner being that I was born and raised in the area. The food was very good and the staff was available to make sure your needs are taken care off.

My family and I have gone here many times over the years. The food has always been top notch, and the service is even better. They won't let you leave hungry.

I have been there 4 or 5 times with other people because they wanted to good. I myself don't much care for the taste of their food. Other people like it but I am not a fan. I like Mexican food but not EL Toro

We had a party of 12 on a Friday night. There was no wait. They had a group of 4 true Mexican's that went from table to table singing and playing music (for tips). It was pretty neat.

Have ate here often. Food is always tasty and comes out pipping hot. I feel that the portions are above average and with reasonable prices, you get a lot of bang for your buck. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is courteous.

Wide variety of food including some American Food. The prices are reasonable and the portions large enough to take some home for a late night snack! The speed of service is excellent! They also have a bar if you want a refreshing adult beverage with your meal or just need to unwind after a long day.
