El Torito - Milpitas
Using the freshest ingredients and boldest flavors, our menu offers a range of quintessential Mexican food, along with culinary innovations we know guests will love. We are known best for our tableside preparations, including our made-to-order guacamole and flame-grilled fajitas, which arrive sizzling to the table.
Our standard is great, and we don’t do anything without passion. Over 60 years, we’ve learned a lot about Mexican food, like how not to mess it up.

It was my sons birthday and my son inlaws fathers day.
It was a perfect restaurant for these occasions .
The food was great.
Service and atmosphere were great. Fajita need more flavor
Would be helpful to know Happy Hour & Restaurant seating are separate. Great service & menu of variety. If you miss Chevy’s from your childhood, El Torito brings back the memories & the taste.
I made it out on a much needed date night with my wife of 21 years!!!! Having the table ready and not having to wait to be seated was the perfect beginning to what was a beautiful night out with my love!!!! TY
Super fun restaurant with great started chips and salsa. Marco was a great waiter. Will definitely return, theyre drinks menu looked good if thats your thing
Service is slower here. If you have nothing else to do then it's not so bad. Food is good. We came for my moms birthday and requested twice they surprise her and sing to her. Nothing. They sang to other tables though. So it's up in the air if you come for birthdays. Atmosphere is nice.
And great environment
Definitely looking forward for a new visit
Slow service, small portions, poor quality & quantity. Chips were bits of pieces, order was not correct. Explanation of surcharge was inadequate. Will not be returning. Very disappointed. Used to frequently this restaurant years ago.
We sat at the side Patio and loved out waitress ...she was so kind and checked on us often , chips and salsa came as needed (same my bottomless Mimosas lol)
Kids and husband were so impressed with the food flavors , we will be back soon . Family friendly and the music was so cool too
Took us in a little early then our reservation was great
This restaurant is one of the best ones in the Bay Area! Food is excellent. Correctly priced. Such value for money. Service is excellent! The interiors are very nice with arches and pockets of tables. Soo there’s privacy yet it’s open. Been there twice and plan to go more times!
OUR WAITER WAS GREAT AND ACCOMMODATING. FOOD WAS DELICIOUS AND HOT!
Covid precautions are seen all over the restaurant. Service was exceptional and food was pretty good. Price was a bit steep if you don't eat "enough" at buffets.
The experience at the restaurant was terrific. *Delicious* food and fantastic service. I highly recommend the tacos, menudo, enchiladas, fresh salad and fajitas. Just thinking about them, I am hungry again!
The only little hiccup was the reservation system. Reservations for Sunday brunch were offered at 8:30 am, so that's what my family selected. We planned our 45 minute drive carefully to be on time, however, when we arrived at the restaurant they announced they opened at 9:00 am. We waited until 9:00 and everything was else was superb.
The food was really good and the service was great !
El Torito was excellent! The best Mexican - American food I've had in the Bay!
It was my son’s pre birthday celebration.
We enjoy eating at el Torito because of their delicious food, ambiance and customer service.
They keep everything clean and sanitize so it makes my family and I feel safe that measures are serious in this establishment.
We will return.
Service and food great. My third experience.
Unfortunately, despite arriving on time, noting we had a reservation to the host, and pointing out our reservation, El Torito told Open Table we were a no show. No good deed every goes unpunished.
Great Mothers Day celebration! Service was good, had to ask multiple times for things but was still satisfied. She was very nice, but I understand it was really busy.
Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon! – Xperience Restaurant Group
El Torito gave us a great Mother's Day brunch that didn't break the bank. Great food and service!
We are happy to hear about your experience! We appreciate you taking the time to share. - Xperience Restaurant Group
Sunday Brunchs food was good, but service was good but sparce. I would definitely try again.
Great food, great service , great friends! What more could you ask for? Great happy hour!
It was a very good experience.The service was excellent
Very COVID-19 guidelines observant. Love the little corn cakes. Kathy, our serve, was terrific. Attentive without being intrusive.
Service was not good at all, our servicer was rude and eager to taking orders and not patient. He also kept whispering remarks under his breath. Not at all happy with this location, but since it’s close by we don’t really have a choice of another location.
Good value. Not crowded. Hard to judge with COVID hanging over you. Thanks Trump
Always a go to place where all family members enjoy what we eat. Great corn cakes !!
The buffet was a little disorganized.
Hard to keep 6 feet apart with so many people getting their food. The food tasted ok.
Just as I remember it..... Friendly and delicious!
Nice place good food but not very organized put more arrows on the ground
Great range of choices on the buffet. Good value! The service we revcived from Maria Elena was great and she had a great personality & was very attentive. We are looking forward to going back soon!
Brunch was delicious. Service was stellar. Our server was very attentive, keeping our mimosas full and was very friendly and helpful. Our empty plates were promptly picked up. The brunch station servers were great and funny too.
All in all i enjoyed our lovely delicious easter brunch.
The outdoor dining area is nice, some is tented some is not, there are patio heaters for warmth if necessary. We sat inside at a table near the bar area that was nice and comfortable.
Friendly and prompt service. Lots of food choices and very tasty. Great for quiet friends gathering or families. Definitely recommend!
First meal out since the plague hit. Feel way safer after vaccinations. I had a chili rellano and a Mex caesar, both great. Husband had street tacos and they were salty. I had a Margarita and it was outstanding.
Waiter was kind of a dope, but very nice. Seating arrangement felt safe for the times.
I'm neutral on this place, guac is around 16-17$ which is the same price as Zazil at Santana row, and not that yummy, a good place to go for a casual quick lunch/ dinner or meetup with friends. it has a dive bar kinda feeling, not great, not bad eitther.
Great Value for the food options. They are doing a great job keeping everyone safe and following guidelines
Love the buffett
Sunday Buffet Brunch was expertly prepared and served. Service was excellent, food was delicious!
I got the feeling that the wait staff was not ready for in door dining again. We were sat down at our table (party of 7) and were given 4 menus to share. There was no silverware of napkins on the table. We were served chips and salsa and drinks were brought out at a slow pace. The food was served and I had to ask for the silverware and napkins. The noise level was extremely loud around us. Not the fault of the restaurant but other patrons were just overly vocal. The food was great and overall we like El Torito.
Loving this place everytime I visit is even better. I'm so glad they open....
