My family and I were visiting the area and stopped by one Thursday night which happened to be trivia night. It was so much fun. I had the fish tacos and they were awesome. The staff was very friendly. Can't wait to go back again especially for trivia night.

Wish El Toreo was better as it is the closest Mexican place to our home. The food is just nothing special to write home about. Service is good and the staff is friendly. They try hard it's just not quite the type of Tex-Mex we really like. We go back every so often to see if they've got the spark,... More

Went for dinner Monday nite for their Fajita special. They were great and the portion was large even though it was a "special" - had to ask for the sour cream. The chips & salsa were just right. Service was fine as well. Recommend.

The chips & salsa were good, but all the other food was super bland. The ground beef had absolutely no seasoning. Both my burrito supreme & my husband's fajita taco salad were tasteless. The lettuce is not shredded & both the guacamole & cheese were left off my burrito even though it specified they came on it. Tried this restaurant... More
