First time at Torreon was with friends who frequented there. Since then I typically have dinner once every two weeks when in town. Pleasant but not fancy interior, but a little noisy, but the meals I've had have been consistently delicious and the service is attentive and the menu prices are reasonable. I have not experienced much of the menu... More

Had pretty high expectations based on friends reviews of this place. Walking in, the setting is great, however after that the meal turned mediocre. Margaritas were strong but had a very different flavor from any other margarita I've had in Mexico, not sure whether I really liked it but certainly drinkable. I probably shouldn't have expected much since this "Mexican"... More

The food here is very good and the Margaritas are great! The only drawback is they're only open for lunch once a week.

I can't believe I've missed this place for so many years! I had the flat top enchiladas (beef) and they were really good! Next time I plan on trying a margarita as those seemed to be on almost every table!

Every trip that my husband and I make to KC we are sure to stop and have dinner at this cozy unassuming spot. The food and service are excellent. We love the tamale dinner (enough for two to split) and the homemade guacamole is awesome. Take the time to find this gem.

Although a bit pricy, the food and atmosphere are great. Close table settings and soft lighting combine for a great dining experience. Best guacamole in town!

Ever since I met Denise and David, I've become a huge fan of the Torreon. The Ibarra family has operated this amazing, authentic restaurant for many decades and Denise is continuing the tradition of quality and service today. Birthday gatherings, business meetings and social settings.... it really doesn't matter.... the Torreon has the perfect setting for a great experience. Any... More

We dined at Torreon on Cinco Du Mayo - thought it would be a good place to send the evening with friends - arrived about 4:00 because we were told that's the only way to get a table and most people stayed all night - Food was bad and drinks were watered down - when we were finished eating the...

I've been to numerous mexican restaurants in the area - heck - around the country - and a little mexican restaurant hidden away in Shawnee Mission KS is by far the best! If you don't mind a little noise and a very close atmosphere is total outstanding! The restaurant on seats about 50 people - the service is OUTSTANDING -... More

This place is overpriced lettuce in a tortilla. Wow, this is the worst place to eat mexican food at. The margaritas are nasty... there were four of us, someone had chalupas, I had gorditas, someone had tostadas....they were all the same: expensive, tiny, a tiny bit of unseasoned ground beef and a ton of shredded lettuce. Absolutely horrible.
