Torero's is your basic good Mexican restaurant. The food is consistently good and the service is very friendly. They usually have a special on drinks, and all the items on the menu are worth trying.

When you walk in the restaurant is colorfully decorated. Several bullfighter photos on the walls. Mexican music plays and the service is very friendly. The menu is diverse with excellent prices. Food was great. I would definitely return.
