Stopped here for some food from a long day of driving. Food was delicious and service was great. Wish we had one of these in Rockford and we definitely will be stopping on the way back from Gulf Shores!

We were staying at the nearby Baymont Inn (I do NOT recommend that hotel), and walked here. It was a very pleasant surprise. The staff were very friendly, and we had great food in a warm environment. Highly recommend this place!

I was very impressed with El Torito. I had the chicken fajitas and they were very good. The salsa was good and tasted fresh. It was reasonably priced and we had excellent service.
