Greeted by a friendly Matre D. Seated promptly in a clean and comfortable dining area. Ordered the Macho Combo, it was delicious but beware, if you don't have a big appetite this probably isn't the dish for you. So much choice and all arrived quickly and the staff are super friendly.

I sat their cozy bar, watched the game, sipped a couple of margaritas and i tried my first spinach enchiladas there (trying to drop meat) and they were very good! good service too. to me - 5 stars. would go there...

Met a friend in town here for a quick dinner/drinks. Wonderful place! I had the sour cream chicken enchiladas that were amazing. My husband had the all-you-can eat tacos and succeeded at eating 9 of them :). Good service, food and price! Great little place!

Pleasant family dining on Sunday morning. Broad array of selections on the buffet line. The seafood was outstanding. Champagne is included with the meal. I will be back. Great service too!

It's been a while since we've eaten there after church. Per the manager, the brunch set-up was changed about 6 months ago. Last I recall, the price was about $14/person. News flash: The price is now $23.99 per person! (OUCH!) In my opinion, that's a bit over the top for breakfast. They do have a wider selection than before and... More

It seems as if El Torito has lost its way a little. I used to go to them regularly in college but having left the state of California long ago, I have not been to one recently. The food was OK but it seems it used to be better. I would go there for the margaritas and still would. The... More

El Torito is one of our favorite places for weekend brunch! They have a bottomless brunch and the food quality is amazing. We try to eat here every time we visit California.

We were in the neighborhood and had a gift card from Christmas, so we popped in for a late lunch/early dinner. My husband and I were seated fairly quickly. It took a bit of time for someone to stop by the table, but once our server arrived, we had great service. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. We were surprised... More

I ate here one night while visiting the beach cities area when I had a craving for Mexican food. I picked the right spot. The service was good, the food was what I was hoping for, namely traditional Mexican fare, and the portions were generous. My plate was enormous! Couldn't finish it all. I had the chicken enchilada plate and... More
