I love being able to eat as much Mexican food that I want. Burritos, enchiladas, fresh tacos. There is not tastier beans and rice in the city of Fresno.

I've eaten here before and love the food. I did order a patron margarita and was very surprised that they charged 9 for patron and another 8 for grand mariner so I had only 2 drinks for 27 dollars. I came from Boston to Fresno and even in Boston they don't charge that much. Next time I just order the... More

Friendly Staff and plenty of choices. The extra money is worth it for the endless Mimosas. The omelette bar is efficeint ad you can ask for things not out in the open, like seafood or Steak to be added to the omelette.

Attended before an event at Convention Center, they were not prepared for the additional business. Our waitress had to do everything, get drinks, serve food, and bus table afterwards. The food was not great, the beans had no flavor. I complained but nothing was offered to adjust bill. We had to wait for everything. Asked several times for our bill.

We like the fact we were able to walk across the parking lot to El Torito. It's a nice place with authentic Mexican Flair and the food was good. My hubby loves Fajitas and me, I am so picky about my Chili Rellenos.. These are the BEST! Hot and spicy, but not too hot. Made with Pasilla Chilis and cooked... More

El Torito has been a staple restaurant for many, many years in the downtown area. Near El Torito, there isn't a great deal of competition. The service won't impress, the food will fill you up but, again, the food isn't going to blow your socks off. Average Mexican food, with slightly higher than average prices. For our family, this is... More

We ordered 2 dinners, desert and 1 app to be picked up, since we were staying in the hotel next door. Food was ready quickly and tasted fine, just not great or anything special. They forgot to put our desert in the bag and I forgot to check before leaving and had to go back after calling to tell them... More

To me a lot of Mexican food tastes the same. Like Chinese buffet is all the same. I really enjoyed the flavor twists that makes common dishes unique to this place and much more enjoyable. The cantina decor makes the experience all the more complete. The bacon wrapped shrimp was outstanding. The beef, chicken and shrimp fajitas were some of... More
