El Torito - Sherman Oaks
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.
Wish I could give no stars. Our food still hadn’t arrived at least 45 minutes after ordering - the waiter and manager both did nothing about it, so we left! Will not be returning.
El Torito is a great place to bring the family! Very fun and the food is fantastic!
After the disappointing decline of La Fogata, it's nice to know there's still a good Mexican restaurant in Sherman Oaks, even if it's a quasi-chain. Overall, pretty tasty and decent value.
We come here regularly for dinner and a few times a year for 14-16 friends to celebrate birthdays. We highly recommend it to others too! A+
The server was nice and friendly. However, the food took a long time to arrive. We ordered the unlimited tacos (the Tuesday special) and they bring you two at a time, and they take a considerable amount of time between each plate. The tacos were decent, but nothing special, especially for the price. The most regrettable thing we did was order the guacamole that they make at your table. All they did was carve out one and a half avocados and mix them with premade ingredients. That's literally it. We asked for it to be spicy and I don't know if they screwed that up or their definition of spicy is made to accommodate children but there was no spice at all. It was the biggest rip off.
Had a party of 7 adults and 3 children under 5. The waiter was efficient and so we’re the busers. Good hot food, lots of chips and salsa on the table. We sat for quite a while snd really had a great time. Really love that place!
Never been there before, it was ok. Nachos were a bit dry. The hostess wasnt aware of the "go rams" promo and had a bit of an attitude about it.
Fun loud atmosphere with reliably good Mexican food.
This was our second visit to this location and we are still well-pleased. We always love to see managers come by to check on our experience and we were visited several times during our meal. The food is plentiful and great tasting and we enjoyed everything so much!
Parking is terrible. Perhaps, it's just the time of the year when the shoppers are out. But most of the spaces have been designated 15 minutes only.
I had a great time celebrating my birthday here. The waitress (Amanda) was very sweet and kind. I would definitely come back!
The hostess was great and attentive. But the waiter was awful. We have eaten at alot of El Toritos and this was the worst service we have ever had.
Perfect for a quick lunch! Service was excellent, food consistently good. Great value.
