Founded in 1954, El Torito is the authority in great Mexican food. A festive & hospitable restaurant rich in heritage, we focus on offering a memorable experience to make each guest feel like family, as if we are welcoming them home.

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.

Best brunch buffet!! They have so many choices of food and it’s fresh and tasty. Our waitress Cindy was so nice and always attentive. She was always back at our table every 5 minutes filling up our mimosas and waters. Can’t wait to go back soon!

I have not been to El Torito in ages. It needs a little touch up here and there since I am comparing it to when it first opened. Other than that the service was great and the food was also pretty good.

Enjoyed the time there. There were large groups for graduation celebrations, which elevated the noise level, but that is what to be expected.

Service was pretty bad but what do I expect it’s practically Mexican fast food. Brunch buffet was empty more than half the time.

We had a lousy table table in an empty section surrounded by dirty tables. Server was lovely when present but not around much. Food was mediocre. I had low expectations going in and wasn’t disappointed!
