worst service I have had in my 67 yrs. It took 45 mins to get our food and when our food arrived, five out of six meal were cold. Won't do that again.

This is what I'm looking for when I'm craving Mexican. Try the beef fajitas - outstanding! Everything is fresh and well-prepared.

What separates El Torito from a typical Mexican food restaurant in Eugene is the quality of the food and, surprisingly, the prices. You can easily taste the fresh ingredients in each of El Torito's dishes, yet they're somehow also very reasonably priced. The generous entres range around $9 - $12, but be prepared to receive far more than the price suggests. El Torito delivers authentic and "American" Mexican dishes that spare no ingredients or quality. Plus, you can get half-off appetizers during their extended happy hour (4-8pm!) as well as great drink specials- and did I mention that some of these "appetizers" are larger than a typical entre?
The restaurant itself is well designed with a colorful, tiered layout, an interior courtyard with plenty of natural light, and a comfortable patio. A satisfactory variety of tequilas is supported by an enticing cocktail and margarita menu, and once again, the prices are right. Authentic preparation and presentation are accented by the best value in around when it comes to the entres and appetizers. Daily specials like Sunday's Mexican brunch and .99c Taco Tuesday are more great reasons to stop by.

The bottom line- El Torito is easily the best Mexican restaurant in town. With its mix of quality, authenticity, atmosphere, and price, you could even compare El Torito to some of Portland's top Mexican restaurants. Be sure to check out the Mexican brunch, the Carnitas Michoacan, happy hour, and the dessert menu.

Its not everyday you find something so close to corporate Mexican food that its rebranded as "El Torito" when it could be mistaken for a Chevy's or even Applebee's minus the American fare. The food itself is decent, but with entrees stacking up at $11-14 a plate, it makes one wonder if this place is even worth it. Believe it or not, the food is OKAY, but could be better. Fast food can sometimes be more satisfying than this place.

This is my favorite sit-down Mexican restaurant in Eugene. The decor is great, with an atrium-like dining room which lets light in. Great tropical iced tea and Mexican caesar salads.
