Not too bad of an experience. The Service was very good and the guacamole was great (made at table side).

Myself and my colleagues go to El torito at least once a month. Between all of us we have gluten free people, vegan and vegetarian people and this buffet works for all of us! I highly recommend it!

Servers are very friendly, Margaritas are great and their giant chicken taco (more like a salad in a giant tortilla) is delicious

Expected the usual chain menu/quality. Was pleasantly surprised by a very nice experience starting with a pleasant hostess, to the helpful, attentive, and friendly waitress. The food too exceeded my expectations. Not much more to say. Good meal.

Good selections. Great proximity to our hotel (Courtyard by Marriott, Cypress/Anaheim) and they offer a discount for hotel guests (20% off). Short wait time. Great ambience.

Maria and I came here for dinner tonight. Maria had the tacos that she was craving and I had my reliable Burrito Especial. We are both happily stuffed. We were seated shortly after we arrived. Our server was pleasant and attentive.

Oh gosh, my word circling guess that they would have no trouble accommodating a party of that size. I would recommend calling them and making reservations so that they can accommodate their staffing for your party so that... More
