I have never written a review before but felt I had to let people know about this restaurant.

We ate there for the first time because the place was recommended to us by a friend. The salsa was very bland. There were four of us in our

This restaurant is filled with racism. I went there because the outside was pretty, but don't let that fool you. The inside smells and has old rusty furniture.

With that being said, the worst part is the employees and management. When I was seated I did not get any menues, several other mexicans entered the restaurant and immediately gained menues. After I approached the manager, he said: "i did not see you, I am sorry but I am out of menues" (that was an indicator of a red flag) I waited a half an hr to get my drinks and chips, then an hour later being told that they ran out of rice. 1 hr later.... Com'on seriously! That means that they did not even start to make my food till an hr later. After I complained to the manager, his response was: "you have to wait just like everybody else" no sorry, no compensation, no nothing.

I gathered my things and walked out with my party and their expressions were a smirk... (in other words: I dont give a sh**)

The food was not rated in this review, because I never got to taste it, but if it better be top notch to compensate for the poor service. To me, it's just not worth it... Save your money for a real nice classy place where they welcome and appreciate your business.

This company is rated -0

I am writting this review not about the food at El Toro Taco, but because of the kindness of the people at this restaurant. I recently lost a ring that has sentimental value to me. I looked for it everywhere and could not find it. I had been to El Toro Taco the weekend before and decided to call even though I did not remember taking it off at any point. When I called I was told that they had the ring and they would hold it for me. I would just like to point out the kindness of whatever employee found the ring at the restaurant and decided to be honest and turn it in, instead of keeping it. Sometimes it isn't just the food that matters, but the quality of people that work in the restaurant. If you visit El Toro Taco rest assured that it is a great restaurant not just because of their food but also because of their employees.

Thank you El Toro Taco

I have been going to this restaurant since the mid eighties when my dad and unlce used to take me there as a kid. I used to love it, but for some reason each time i went, it seemed to get worse and worse. After todays experience, I will never go back. When I showed up, the place half full, yet the greeter made us wait outside knowing we had 4 small children in the party. Not enough room, i can understand but I will not go back there again because the quality of the food is not there anymore and the service is far from any merit. Honestly, go to Taco Bell and save yourself the drive and the hour and 15 minute wait. No, I am not kidding, we waited an hour and 15 minutes to receive our food. Not to mention, that they messed up my wifes order, A SALAD.....I do have to give them credit for fixing it FAST. Once the food arrived and we were almost done, the greeter came by and said they only had one cook. Apart, from that.....I had to listen to my freaking brother inlaw complaint because of the LONG wait and less than par cuisine. Yes I do have it give to el Toro Taco because of the cool BYOB rule. I loved it as a college student, now that novelty wore off a long time ago. Before today, the last time I was in Homestead(1 yr ago), el Toro Taco was too full, so my wife and decided to go the restaurant one block south..........you know what, The NEXT time I want good mexican food with efficient service, I will go that restaurant one block south of el Toro Taco. With that said......Good Bye Toro Taco...You just lost a long time customer forever

I used to love this restaurant! It WAS... and I emphasize, WAS the best Authentic Mexican Restaurant in South Florida. Do not waste your time. The service was bad and the food too. I do hope they turn back around. There are better choices out there.

Pros: Price

Cons: Food, service

I have been going to el Toro Taco since 1985, there is not a friendlier place with better Mexican food around. Bring your own cooler with your own beer or wine. Order the Bean dip and add a little of the salsa that every table gets with chips. I highly recomend either the Chicken Burrito platter or the Fiesta platter, but whatever your choice you'll be delighted.Trust me you'll be back with your friends. The Hernandez family will treat you as their own.

Great traditional Mexican. Do not expect lettuce and tomato on your meal or a red sauce. This is old fashioned pulled meat (not ground beef). The portions are huge and you would be smart to give their "hot" the caution it warrants. If you are looking for great Mexican food that does not resemble Taco Bell this is it. There are no aires nor dress code, but a drive out of the way. Don't save room for dessert; they are commercially made and nothing special (the only items on the menu which are not)

Gotta try this place. Dont go when its too busy-you'll wait forever. They let you bring coolers with your own alcohol. Get there early enough for the rib soup- out of this world.

this restuarant gives you the feeling that you are actually in mexico. the menu is well suited for the restaurant. i recommend the salsa and chips. one could actually eat this and be full. the salsa has just the right amount of cilantro. my favorite item from the menu is the whole snapper
