El Toro is uber consistent, extremely friendly staff, and a good value. When we want Mexican food, El Toro always comes to mind!

Arrive in the evening at El Toro. Cordially greeted, seated promptly. Nice atmosphere. Server was prompt with menus and chips and salsa. Ordered marigaritas, good but pricey. Ordered meal , it came to fast , maybe two sips on marigaritas. Meal was ok, nothing special, not much flavor, very little seasoning. Pricey.

After a day at Nearby Valleyfair we decided to forego the expensive park meal prices and stop here for dinner with the kids. The margaritas were very weak and lacking flavor and expensive at $10 for an average size glass. The food was good but the menu mentioned a choice of flour or corn tortillas with the fajitas but the... More

This is our favorite place for authentic Mexican food. The staff is so friendly and they are so good to our kids. We send our friends here. Best place around hands down.

El Toro is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. Always experience excellent, friendly and genuine service, wonderful home-cooked and authentic food and a good margarita. I recommend the mole sauce, it is one of the best I've had, and I'm pretty picky about it. Their sister restaurant El Loro in Savage, MN is just as good.

I've eaten at El Toro in Shakopee a few times for my sister-in-law's birthday. The food and prices were decent and the service was really good. In terms of Mexican restaurants its right up there with the rest. I have nothing bad to report about it, but it didn't stand out as an amazing eating experience.

Stopped by last night and the restaurant was full which made the service a little slower than usual, but everyone was still very friendly and attentive. I had the chicken fajitas which for $12 is enough food for two meals. My wife had two items off of the 'Daily Specials' menu that is on the chalkboard when you walk in.... More

My daughter and son-in-law took me out for a birthday dinner here. The food was delicious, although I'm not sure where the ranch dressing idea comes from with chips and salsa? I've never encountered that in Mexico. They were busy that Saturday so the service was so-so but I was being entertained by my granddaughter anyway. Overall great tasting food... More
