El Torito - West Covina
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.
Very good brunch, worth the price and the time. This was my second time going and will continue to go.
Need some heaters
Decent food for the price. Wife & I shared the fajitas supreme. Plenty of food for both of us.
Everything was good. Service, food, and atmosphere.
Food was amazing! Service was awesome; our server was really friendly. We had a reservation one hour before closing. They didn't make us feel rushed, and our food was fresh. We are going back!
Good Mexican foods
Can’t think of any thing they did a great job. We had a good time.
The food was ok. This is due to the sheer amount of people that were eating outside. I still ate the food as it was good, just not like usual. That is understandable due to the pandemic.
The drinks on the otherhand, that came out really quick and they were good. Very nicely priced and the happy hour menu is awesome! It's really extensive. It's also every day!
I ordered the all you can eat soup & salad for $8.95. It was delicious and the server just kept 'em comin'!
Was not busy food took for 1 hour to Come out a party that arrive 20 min after us got there food before us and waste of my money very disappointed first time there and last time
Well I don't consider eating outside during summer to be a positive thing but we have no choice right now. I arrived early and my guest was late but I was well looked after by the staff and they were very attentive to all of the customers. This is a trying time for everyone but they did their best to make it a positive experience.
A good value for the money. These are challenging times for restaurants, and El Torito is doing a fine job. I had soup and bacon wrapped shrimp. My friend had one of the combo plates. Delicious!
Very good for being outside in a tent. Set up was good. Nice cooling set up. Service was excellent.
I had a great time with my wife. Service was great and food outstanding
It was a good experience
Staff overworked, pleasant. Too hot to sit in the parking lot. The wind blew up the umbrella my child and sat under and crashed on the table spilling our drinks. Very uncomfortable climate windy and freeway noise was not pleasant. I asked for my food to go after the incident. This was not the staffs issue in anyway. Eltorito should invest in better shade for guests. Please go to Costco and get actual canopies and secure placement. I will not be returning..
Excellent customer service
The food and service was great. The only issue I had was I never got my receipt emailed to me.
Service was bad to start off, went for brunch had to ask for refills of our drinks, food was ok definitely not what I was used to at other El Torito restaurants. Disappointed to say the least!
The restaurant adhered to social distancing measures exceptionally. All employees wore face masks. There were designed arrows on the floor that were easy to follow in order to navigate the restaurant. Patrons were seated 6 feet from one another with 1-2 booths empty booths/tables in between. The service and food was wonderful as usual.
Great to get out for our 1st dinner since Stay at Home!
Foods and service was excellent
Nice to be able to dine in. Too bad we have to live with masks and face shield. Tough understanding people. And they are NOT necessary.
Great staff. The food is always great. I'm happy to be a customer
Our server was rude/short and the food was warm. I would recommend the Sunday Brunch. The food is hot and delicious!
The food and the service were great. We had set reservations prior and were seated on time. The restaurant was pleasant. I will definitely return.
Great really enjoyed it
They over cooked the corn twice. The waitress took very long in taking our order. And bring our drinks. Then the drinks were not very tasteful. The sprite/ 7 up taste like pipe water. The alcoholic drinks were way to watered down. Just not a good experience. Over all! Management needs to educate waiters on timing and presentation. Bar tenders on making drinks. I only say this because I’ve worked in the past at Alcapulos in Downey for 6 years and no matter how busy we were we have excellent service. Rather food, bar or anywhere in the restaurant... always on our toes. Management always spoke to us kindly about Customer service !!!
Restaurant seemed to be short of staff.
- to be seated with barely no one in the restaurant.
- for a server to come to our table.
- for our drinks that we ordered.
- for the jalapeño peppers we requested.
Food arrived 30 min after it was ordered; arrived warm (not hot).
Server did provide three chips and salsa for the table.
The experience at this restaurant needs much improvement

The food was very good for the price. We had a good time celebrating with friends.
The food was DELICIOUS! it took a while to get our food but overall everything went well. Thank you !!!
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.
