I ate dinner at this restaurant today and I was impressed at the improvement in the food. The service has always been good however in recent months the food had went down Based on tonight's experience I plan to return soon

I have found this restaurant to be hit or miss. Yesterday was definitely a big miss. I ordered fajita nachos with the steak and onion well. Neither was cooked to order. I did not dare send it back as the manager frowns on anything being sent back even if it's their fault. There is better Tex Mex around however this... More

While overall I tend to enjoy going here for dinner the food is hit or miss however the service is always very good. It attracts an older adult crowd vs younger families and children. The drinks are always good and I enjoy the nachos. The fajitas are always a good choice.

Five of us recently visited the spruced about the remodeled Loehmann's Plaza and decided to try El Torero for dinner. Unfortunately the insides have not been updated. The menu and service are both pretty dated. The fajitas, burritos, and tacos were the standard acceptable fare you can find at any average Mexican restaurant. However, for the "vegetarian" options were not... More

Unfortunately we have such a good local Mexican restaurant at home that it is hard for anyone to compare. This one did not. The service was confusing since everyone seemed to serve all tables, which could be a good thing except that our drinks were forgotten. The salsa had too much of a bite for most at our table and...

My husband and I have frequented this restaurant for about two years now. It is a no frills place, but the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. If you want good food, quick service, and reasonable prices, there's no better alternative.

The menu is extensive Tex-Mex. The salsa is excellent and has some heat. The flauta filling was mushy... the service was fast but not overly friendly but I can live with that since there wasn't any wait. It was crowded with lots of families so a popular local place...
