Unusual setting with the dining room behind the bar area, but it was clean and looked like and old mexican restaurant inside. The service was friendly and prompt and the chips were homemade and tasty. The meal, however, was disappointing. The ground beef in the burito tasted like it was out of a can. Will not return.

El Toro offers Mexican fare that is unique and fare better prepared than most places. The folks there are friendly, helpful and glad you're there.Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

Good Mexican. Lots of variety to choose from. Better than most in the area. Prices are reasonable also.

My family stopped by after visiting the Veterans Cemetery. We were impressed there were a lot of vegetarian choices on the menu. However, once we started with the too-thick chips and watery salsa, we should have cut our losses and left. We ended up ordering and we regret that decision. One order included steak that was tough as a boot.... More

My family and I stopped here on the way home from exploring. The service was good. The food was just ok. The price was ok. I'd go back, but it's nothing memorable.

When you are getting gas at the Higginsville exit on I-70 and you want something besides fast food, drive about 3 or 4 miles north to the edge of Higginsville. This Mexican restaurant won't disappoint!! The service is friendly and prompt. They have lunch and dinner specials every day. They have a full bar so you can get that marguarita!... More

This is a small eating establishment but located nicely right off the highway. Food is excellent! They also have beer and mixed drinks if that is something you would like with your meal. Service is quick and most the time friendly. My husband and I go there as often as we can get in the area

Food was okay. Normal Mexican fare, nothing special. Went here on the way home from vacation because of the good reviews. Would not drive the extra 4.5 miles off I-70 again for the food. Waitress was pleasant & very helpful.

Just driving by after discovering our original choice was closed, and had the best lunch I have had in awhile. I ordered the chicken taco salad It was a nice blend of pinto beans, lettuce, cheese, and hot shredded chicken with mild seasoning. My mate ordered the chicken fajitas and said, "They're a good eat.". (which is his highest compliment)

My grandson and I were in Higginsville for a wrestling tournament this past weekend. We decided to stop at El Toro on our way home. Our server, Rosie, was amazing, as was the Pollo con crema! The salsa was by far my favorite of any place I have visited recently. My grandson said even his French fries were the best... More
