El Torito - Stockton
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’s was a nice evening atmosphere was nice just wish there was music playing
We were celebrating my son’s birthday, our waitress was amazing and the food was delicious as always! The only down was that it was too early and too hot for a margarita ;). I’m glad you’re back in business!
We really enjoyed the brunch. Like that you now provide free apps. the chips & salsa and the chilaqias were a real treat. We liked ordering our omelet from our waiter. and that the food is still very good! Also loved how they now serve the food to you at all the stations. Same great service! can't wait to go back!!
Great tasting food with attentive service. Cadillac Margarita exceptionally well made.
The socially distant dining was fantastic. It was nice having servers at each food station. Our table server, however, was quite forgetful. We had to keep asking for items we had already ordered. Some of the food was overcooked. For example, the enchiladas were burnt on the bottoms.
We were only a table of 3 and there was only a total of 4 tables occupied in the entire restaurant at the time.
The food was great our waitress very rude and poor service including other servers was a special occasion and was not even acknowledged
Servers wore masks and gloves.... everything was clean but menus had excess liquid on them to clean. Food was great.
Overall the food was very good and the service was excellent. The difficulty was that the restroom was filthy and the smells coming from that area were disgusting. 30,000 appear to be any effort to try to take care of the problem that we could tell.
Horrible customer service food was abysmal
They first seated us in a corner booth. The tabletop almost fell off. The waiter saw that it was very loose and moved us. The food came fast and was very good.
We Love meeting our family at El Torito’s in Stockton. It’s the perfect place to have a family gathering and the brunch has a good variety of food which we enjoy.
I will certainly have dinner there again! We made a reservation for Christmas Day, and there were plenty of staff to take care of us. And everyone there was cheerful and helpful. Since we had a reservation, we were seated immediately. And the food was great! I'm sure I will be eating the El Torito restaurant again.
Food was good, drinks were good, service was good.
We celebrated a birthday for an adult with a table of 8 and the service was very good. The food was hot (temp wise) and all served together.
Service was horrible, drinks took 30 mins, no refills and not all meals came together and orders were wrong. Came for bday party let waitress know and never sang happy bday
The food was fresh and good. It was a halfway meeting point for family and it did not disappoint!
Great experience. Service was great as well as food.
Sonia was my server. I came on Monday 9/3/19 and when me and my friend were going to order she asked if we could hurry so she could get back to her table to get caught up. It was NOT busy. She was rushing the entire night we got up to get our own silverware off a different table and when my friend was ordering she was talking over my friend and with my friend trying to hurry. It was the worst experience and it was so slow she shouldn’t have been so rushed.
The food was just kind of weak, the salsa was ok, some of the chips tasted a little stale and the food is priced like it should be better, I had the Steak and shrimp Fajitas and my girl had the care asada and shrimp, the picture of the asada shows about twice as much as she got, my steak was over cooked but overall it was ok my little niece had the mini corn dogs and ended up eating from others food because she didn't like them, there were 8 of us total and we did like the guacamole it was pretty good, but there are better options in my area
We love their brunch, good as usual, great place to get together with friends.
Pleasant experience for my daughters birthday!!
Great traditional place, our server Kuka, was fabulous, she gave us excellent tips and was so kind to us. Quesadillas really good, and salsa and chips wee delish,, the caesar salad was sure,, ..Decor great. no noise at lunch. The only reason I gave it a 4star instead of a 5 is the restroom, ladies restroom handicapped stall, may have had a bar, but the toilet was the lowest I have ever seen except for a squat toilet in asia! This needs revamping,, get up with the times.
We plan to go back for a meal sometime, and will go for lunch when it is quiet like this.
Good service food and wait time
always a fun place to have a good dinner. spacious, semi quiet, server was excellent, drinks are always good. food was plentiful
Books for a group of 9 for a birthday lunch. Nothing lead me to know that they only do brunch on Sunday until 2.
Person at desk wasn’t sure how to handle reservation and they weren’t ready for us.
Took a while to get drinks. No explanation that it was buffet only. All drinks didn’t come out the first time and waitress had no idea who was getting what. Lazy.
Large group behind us must have been deaf. They were shouting loudly at those right next to them. I almost shut them up permanently, but didn’t want to ruin the day for my family. They finally left. Good riddance. Some people’s children. All adults by the way.
Food was ok to good. Shrimp were way over cooked and still had the vein in them. Yuck! Waffles were very good.
This was a buffet. Check came with suggested amounts for 18 and 20% tips. Huh? We got a round of drinks, a couple refills, a substitution for root beer without asking to Pepsi and our used plates cleared. I’m not sure how that deserves a 20% tip compared to what a wait staff person has to do for full service meals.
Been there. Done that. Not sure I would return again. Maybe, but not high on my list.
Food was great. Service: The waiter was very nice, sat us quickly.
They didn't have our reservations from OpenTable. It was very busy so we got a seat right away but it was weird. I told them the confirmation number but they said they didn't have it.
It had been years since we had been at a El Torito. Everything was the same as we rememebered, the food was good, the service was great.
Perfect. I was looking for a place that everyone liked, close by, good service for work lunches for 10-15 people. Everything went great. I will be using them again for sure.
Great Sunday buffet. So many food choices and it all tasted great.
We had to wait over an hour to get the dinner we ordered. Steak fajita was absolutely disastrous. Steak was over cooked and so was Salmon. Was celebrating my wife's birthday.
Went here for mother’s day buffet and it was awesome great food. My wife loved it then we went last week and got the flaming fajitas and seafood fajitas and mostly all the veggies were burnt not chard burnt un eatable doesn’t like for me to say anything but I got this email from open table and I need to say something I believe I just had one bad experience and I would go there again it just happens unfortunately it was with me good luck with everything
Enjoyed our dinner with friends, all four of us had different entree and were very pleased
Beer should be drinker in a chilled mug or a tall glass. Not on a big cocktail glass unless your having a seafood cocktail or a Michelada. our server was always hiding somewhere and hard to locate. Bar lady not very nice, her body language was, Do I look like your server?
The whole year this place has great menu and perfect service.
Great place to eat, super nice staff, and good food!
We received great service from "Maria." She made sure our group of 15 was taken care of and all our needs were met.
Great service from Cecilia and the food was delicious. Happy to see El Torito has become a part of open table. Easy to make reservations!
