This location was hosting a fundraiser for Tri-City Hospital last week, so we went to support the cause. Trying to be patient, we waited for half an hour before we went looking for someone to take our order. We had to go the hostess stand to get assistance - they sent over the manager who was very apologetic and took our order. AN HOUR LATER, WE STILL HAD NO FOOD! Unsure who our server was since we never saw anyone but the manager, we flagged down a girl and asked her to check on our order because if it wasn't coming up soon, we were just going to leave. She came back and said our order was up next, so we foolishly waited. When it did come out a couple minutes later, it looked old and sure enough, it was cold to the touch. We flagged down the manager and showed him, so he comped the meal, but what a horrible night. We tried to support a good cause and the restaurant was completely unprepared. Awful!!!! We will never go back.

Yes!!!!!!!!!! I had the best dinner out I have had in a long time at El Torito, My wife had a coupon to get 10.00 off if you purchase 25.00 so we drove around talking about where to go. We always get a good meal at Marie Callendars, and we talked about some of our other spots (we eat out alot, the kids are out of the house and we can so we do.) If its a restaurant in the area we have tried it,ok. So El Torito well I thought, we've been there but its been along time. We had the two best meals in a long time. My wife had the carnitas plate and they were great cooked perfect and flavorful and everything on the plate was flavorful. I had the seafood combo, a salmon taco,a pile of shrimp sauted in some very flavorful sauce. But what was really amazing was after we were about half done it hit me that everything was cooked to perfection and the salsa and chips were excellent, chips came out hot, salsa had flavor and a little bite. Guacamole was fresh mashed avocados. The waiters all had rough english, but very friendly and at the table at the right time. Also I guess the cadilac margarita we shared added to the experience. All in All I could not think of one glitch. I was going to call the restaurant and tell the manager, but I came to insiderpages in hopes other people will get my message. I'm not one to complain about bad experiences, because they all have their days, but rarely is everything great, there is usually something that is not good ,that's just the world we live in today.
