We first ate at El Torero the first weekend we moved to this area. Having lived in Texas for many years, we weren't sure what this area would consider to be Mexican food! We are spoiled! But, we were all pleasantly surprised bu El Torero.

The food was outstanding - I don't think there was hardly a crumb left among the five of us. My hubby had a combination platter and loved it all. The kids had a variety of things from quesadillas to combo plates. I had a steak plate and it was great too - perfectly cooked and deliciously seasoned!

The staff was friendly and service was fast. Everything was colorful and clean, and we can definitely recommend eating dinner here. We loved every bite and plan to eat here as often as we can swing it! Thank you, staff at El Torero - it was a GREAT evening!

Although the name is Mexican and employees are mexican...the food is not authentic Mexican. The sauces are more like over-salted spaghetti sauce...definitely not enchilada sauce or salsa's :( Very disappointed. I even gave them a second chance several months after the first with the result being the same. The terrible food doesn't make up for the great service. And the music could be good if you didn't have 2 different sounds of music.....both times we were seated only about 1/2 way through the restaurant and both times the sound of the music for customers got blended with the music coming from the kitchen. While both music playing was Mexican...it was different styles of Mexican music. While one or the other would have been great for a music lover like myself, both at the same time was not good.
