My wife and I come here about once a month. The food is authentic and service has been excellent for the most part. Margaritas have been wonderful as well as the chips, salsa and ranchero sauce.

El Toro has white sauce for the tortilla chips need I say more. The traditional salsa is so-so could use a little heat.

The service is fast and friendly as well as being on... More

Great service, good food and surprisingly good margaritas. I had the enchilada suprema, which gives you a taste of all kinds. We will be back.

El Toro is aways very consistent. Very good service once again and great Mexican food! El Toro Loco and Burritos Mexicanos were both outstanding. Very good spot in Shakopee and easily the best Mexican food in the area.

Visited at supper time and the place was about 1/2 full. Service was slow, the food, though large portions was mediocre. The chips were greasy but the salsas were good as were the selections of hot sauces. Probably won't be coming back.
