Had dinner here tonight. The enchiladas and fajitas were tasty. The table side guacamole was good but not great. The service was slow to start but got better as the meal progressed, perhaps due to a large party ahead of us

Just spent an hour at El Toritos in Foster City and the drinks were watered down, service was no existence and the place was dirty. STAY AWAY from expensive drinks with no liquor in it and poor service.

This is a good little neighborhood Mexican Restaurant. There is always seating without reservations. The margaritas are very good and they have some interesting dishes. You can get out of there without gaining weight!
