    Slightly disappointed due to the turkey served, my husband only likes white meat and he was told the only turkey available was dark meat since they may have run out of breast meat. Hopefully this won’t hinder our future Thanksgiving visits and you’ll rectify this situation next year. Otherwise we enjoyed our meal, glad not to have to cook since we’re a small family.

    Enchiladas were cold tortillas kind of hard and dry. Flan was warm exposed. The carne asada meat pieces were kind of big like pot roast. Red beef Chile Colorado? Was too water not much of a taste. The rice ,beans and salad was tasty. The server was very nice and attentive. I drove all the way out there from OC to see the Artist paint the Bill . That was not on time and he wasn’t very friendly.

    The server was terrible, long curly hair, didn’t even catch her name. She would roll her eyes at us and didn’t feel like she wanted to attend to us. They brought out my boyfriends food cold and uncooked, had to send it back. I wish I didn’t choose to celebrate my birthday here because she made us feel unwelcome. She didn’t attend to us, a party of 15, and thankfully a hostess helped us out and did more than the server did. A hostess named Evelyn saved the day, other than that I will never attend a dinner lunch or breakfast at this establishment, horrible location.

    I made a reservation 2 days before but yet it took 40 minutes to be seated, then to be ignored for another 15 minutes by the server. The buffet lines were long, and the wait was longer.

    Party went up to 20 people , very very easy to add tables . One waitress (forget her name. ) she was amazing! She took us on separate checks and she was on point! The only inconvenience was the heat!!! In outside bar area ! Ugh they had a fan but it’s not enough

    Prior to the pandemic, I was a regular at El Torito. I was coming 2 to 3 times a month. This is my first time back and I was extremely disappointed at the Quality and taste of the food that I once craved for.

    They were supposed to stop serving buffet at 2 and we were going to drink and have appetizers until 2 and then order off the menu but the staff insisted the buffet didn’t close until 3 and it was the only available menu option. That was disappointing but since our party was so large we really didn’t have a choice.

    In one hour we were only provided with water in which one cup had dried food in it. The waitress asked us to confirm our order 3 times in the one hour and we ended up having to leave and go across the street to Black angus. We understood it was Cinco De Mayo but other tables that were seated around us received food. Our waitress mentioned that she was new but if she couldn't perform she shouldn't have been thrown in on such a hectic day. Another tables guacamole was prepared with her bare hands while I seen others have gloves on. We will not be returning ever again.
