Mexican food is my favorite and I'm picky about it. Not only was this food deliciously authentic, it was served in big quantities and the prices were reasonable. The people were wonderful and service was great. We all loved this place from my teenager to my little kids. I highly recommend it!

Large portion of good food. Very friendly staff. Best white cheese dip I have ever had at any Mexican restaurant.

Large portions of well made, homestyle Mexican cooking. Attentive service. Great margaritas. Would totally recommend.

If you want authentic Mexican cuisine, try this restaurant. The helpings are excellent. We liked the food enough to go at least three times during our stay in the area.

The chairs are the same. The food tastes the same as almost every other Mexican restaurant I've been to with all the flavors blending together. With Authentic in the name I really hoped for and expected more. But my husband wanted Mexican. Next time it's my choice! The service, however, was outstanding!

Never disappointed when we come to Torero's, whether as a couple or large group of friends. Large variety of Margaritas, not just one flavor. Food consistently good with large portions. Music playing in the background makes me tap my feet and happier.

We stopped in after a long day and it wasn't a disappoinment. The staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. The food was delivered in a timely manner and you are only a short distance from several area hotels.

I ate here with a group of friends- we have come here several times. Food style is more of a Tex-Mex, with a good variety in their menu. Definitely let them know if you want any hot pepper or heat to it, as it isn't normally hot at all, at least the dishes I've tried. It's probably not too different... More

It's an average mexican establishment. I wouldn't say it's the best but it was ok. A friend ordered the pollo fundido and usually that is grilled chicken, with veggies and cheese. It was different but the strange thing was it was topped with a square of american yellow cheese. Different... The salsa was ok, lacked salt and heat. For my... More

I've eaten here a few times - last time several years ago. Ate here again today and it was so bleh. Bleh Bleh. Nothing special. Had a burrito w/ very little spice, or taste or meat. Chips were warm, but a little stale. Iced tea was obviously a mix, not brewed. Salsa was fine. Can't recommend - - better than... More
