Mexican
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.

Music is way too loud especially if you're conducting a board meeting at the same time as dinner. Otherwise food and service is perfect!

I took my daughter for Easter and we were seated quickly. The food was amazing! Our server Eduardo was so nice and we never had to ask for a refill on our drinks, he picked up our plates as soon as we were done and asked if we needed fresh silverware! We loved it so much that we are coming back for Mother's Day and we requested to be seated in Eduardo's section!

Easter Brunch... the usual crowded brunch. When we checked in, they said they didn’t have our name down but when I told them I had done it online and could show them the confirmation, they said no problem they would seat us ... 15 minutes later we were seated Heard them tell several other people that too. Was not a problem for us and handled fairly smoothly. The food was good but much of it was not labeled so difficult for my husband with limited choices since he can’t eat seafood, beef or pork The Omelette station was great and moved quickly. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for my waistline) we missed the desserts since they were behind a drink station and not noticed until we were on the way out. Over all a good experience

Food can be on the spicy side. I had a bowl of chicken tortilla soup and it only had about 3 quarter size pieces of chicken in it.

We had a great time and food was good. Added a pasta bar but need a few more options to make it better. Definitely need to be a little bit quicker at getting food out...but overall good, tasty, delicious food. Server was so nice and helpful.

Good food selection. Should have 2 different prices for alcohol included vs. not.
It’s pricey for just food.

They did not have our reservation. Lucky it was earlier enough to get a table for seven.

We went there for Thanksgiving brunch. Food was great, they had a turkey and ham carving station. All you can eat and no clean up after!
