This is a great place for good Mexican food. We go in and get take out whenever we are craving mexican! Yummy chips and salsa, great menu and friendly staff. Been coming here for years and will continue to do so

We've been dining at this neighborhood eatery for the past 19 years--never been disappointed. The staff all seem to have some connection with the family--perhaps a bit less so today than once might have been the case--but certainly a strong family connection to the business....More

Shady and nasty service, watch out with a American Indian waitress with a pony tail - rude and unprofessional

El Toro in University Place is my favorite Mexican restaurant, and I've eaten at most in the area. They have fast and friendly service; you get to know the wait staff after a few visits. Their food, while not fancy, is down-home Mexican good, especially...More
