Shame it was a good spot for Happy hour as well as dinner..I think once the Tonight Show ended years ago the business took a slow decline and direct hit as it was located across the street. Try "Simzy's" near by or "Don Cucos" instead.

My favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. The food tastes good and seems authentic. The building and decor make you feel like you are in Mexico. They also have a very nice lunch buffet.

El Torito is our neighborhood Mexican restaurant. We love Tuesday night tacos, their fresh combo dishes, fresh guacamole, fajitas and of course their Margaritas are yummy. It is family friendly and has a happy hour. Local, fresh and friendly.
