    Delicious, flavorful Mexican cuisine. Be sure to try the guacamole varieties, tacos, ensaladas (great for anyone looking for a healthier option) and specialty margaritas! Brunch is awesome too!

    Finally veered away from the amazing Carne Asada Burrito and tried the Huevos Rancheros for brunch. Make sure to avoid waiting for the check and pay with Cover ⚡️💰👌

    Shrimp tacos + chorizo burrito. Definitely order the guacamole to start, go small, there was plenty. Tacos a tad spicy, but plenty of meat and sauce. Pro tip: Fill the burrito with the hash browns.

    Fun vibe. Share the Queso Fundido & open-faced quesadilla, then order several shrimp & fish tacos. The Chili Rubbed Mango Margarita wins for best drink. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check!

    Everything was on point. The chips and fresh guacamole were so addicting and the Tinga de pollo tacos were to die for.

    Top for mezcal drinks. Mezcal old fashioned with chocolate bitters the best. Wonderful food and service. Faves: Made to order guacamole, Lobster tacos, Lobster and Shrimp ceviches, Grilled octopus

    Start with the guacamole and then try any of the tacos. I suggest the Cabritos. And don't forget to pay with Cover!

    Great place for any celebration that calls for a tequila shot, or two, or three. You might also want to order guacamole and short-rib empanadas.

    great flavors and execution plus fresh produce = a memorable experience. Definitely try the skirt steak and the tuna ceviche. Portions are not huge but still well worth the money. Def coming back

    There is a $18 lunch special. You get an appetizer and an entree. Get the Sopa de Frijol it's so good and creamy. The chicken tacos are kind of sweet but the fish tacos and al pastor tacos are delish!

    Love the tacos, the guacamole and the plantain in mole sauce side. The churros with the dipping sauces is excellent as well. Good ambiance and friendly service.

    The happy hour nachos are only available from 3 to 7pm on weeknights, but they are some of the best in town.

    Burrito is delicious! The guac is a bit pricey but it's delicious, fresh and done to your preference (e.g. Cilantro, medium, mild, or spicy, etc).

    If the Kardashians had a restaurant and threw a private party for the Jersey Shore cast, it would resemble El Toro Blanco.

    If you love Mexican food this is the place for you. The guacamole and chops were freshly made. There's nothing about this place I didn't love.
