El Torito - Hawthorne
My dining experience started out good then went down hill the food was slow coming out but that wasn’t a problem after the meal it took almost 30 minutes to get our to go orders even after having ordered them half was through our meal and even more time to flag down a server for the check the worst part was that over charged my bill when I called took me 30min on the phone only to charge my card a 2nd time for an even higher amount do not recommend this El ToritoI have great experience’s other branches
Armando was an excellent server ! I hope we get him every time we go
Food was pretty cold and the sausages were burnt. Service was slow even though there wasn’t that many people. Maybe the waitress were new. Not sure.

The waiter Jose was funny and very hospitable. He knew the menu well therefore, he was able to make suggestions. Great food, good service and very clean environment. A true win, win in Mexican cuisine ! Delicious!!!
Food was very good I like the place thank you very much
Everyone was very courteous and helpful. Food was delicious and tasty. There were a lot of people in there dining so it was a little noisy. We still enjoyed Ourselves and were able to have and hear our conversations.
staff was friendly and efficient, we were seated promptly and got quick service
Only recommend for local dining otherwise, I would make the drive to another El Torito.
Take Out only at hawthorne location.
I enjoy the atmosphere, I went there with my mom and sisters and we all had a good time

We cannot thank you enough for the kind words about our restaurant. Your review means a lot to us and lets us know we are on the right track! – Xperience Restaurant Group
My table wasn’t ready when I got there and they were short on menus.
Restaurant toook forever to bring our food
The employees looked like they didn’t wanna work there
It was Mother’s Day and they didn’t show any enthusiasm towards any table they look lazy and bothered I regret comming to this location Redondo beach has the best customer service ever I thought it would be the same here because it the same company this place was a embarrassment to bring my mom for Mother’s Day horrible customer service
Old restaurant, but the staff was great and food was surprisingly good.
Food was very unseasoned and lacked flavor. Ambiance could have been better.
Thank you for celebrating with us! -Xperience Restaurant Group
My first time there and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

We went for Taco Tuesday and the meat for tacos was cold and did not taste fresh. Waiter was not attentive to our needs.
Food was cold sat outside was very dirty poor serv
they need to either beter train their waitress' or find new help because the level of attitude and disregard our waitress had for our party was horrible. she was not attentive nor did she speak professionally to any of us regarding our service.
All the tables are socially distanced and the wait staff were masked the entire time. Our meals and bar drinks were delicious!
Although the look of the dining room is changed due to covid, its still festive.
It was great
Birthday celebration!! Always a good time on Tuesdays
Great service, table was ready when we arrived. Food was awesome highly recommend
we go for the entretainment like dancing at the patio
It was a pleasure. The waiter, Javier was great. He met all our needs with a smile. Lupe was nice as well. She was pleasant over the phone and in person. We dined outdoors.
Always a pleasure
Great experience at El Torito. My server was extremely attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend and would come back.
It’s always a good time on Tuesday nights with the best DJ
Very nice atmosphere. Had to sit outside d/t Covid. Bundle up. They do provide great heating. Food was great. I will definitely return soon.
The food and service were okay however dining outside with no heaters was a big mistake. You are also dining off the strip mall parking lot so a lot of foot and car traffic. Will order to go next time
All you can eat Mexican Cuisine with all you can drink Mimosas or Champagne Sunday Brunch. How can to top that. Huge selection of entrees. Custom order omelets were. Ambience could be better--inside and out. They were a little short staffed. Excellent value for the price, though.
It would be nice if people weren’t allowed to be screaming and acting crazy
POOR SERVICE HAVE TO ASKED SEVERAL TIME TO GET SOMETHING LIKE COFFEE AND REFILLS, WAITER KEPT ON FORGETING TO BRING OUT DRINKS HE FINALLY BROUGH THE COFFEE AND NO SPOONS FOR IT WE HAVE TO STIR THE COFFEE WITH OUT BUTTER KNIFE, HORRIBLE SERVICE POOR CHOICES OF FOOD TOO NOT WORTH IT AT ALL
Need better service & cleanse eating area. Food wasn’t good
I went for a lunch with my partner. The service was ok, the food was overcooked and not very edible. I got the fiesta platter and my wings were over cooked and i also got the steak fajita and the steak wasn’t edible at all very chewy. I almost choked
The outlining experience is very dirty. They actually don't take reservations.
Birthday party during quarantine... small area outside but service was amazing
