    I had the bacon wrapped shrimp. It was exactly like a jalapeno popper. Cream cheese stuffed in a jalapeno, then stuffed in a shrimp, wrapped in bacon. Mmmmnomnom.

    El Toritos sucks for big day occasions like Mother's Day. they don't know what "reservation" means. Do not go for a special day!!

    The new taco bar is not as good as the old one. Less items to choose from.

    If you want to come for brunch, be prepared for horrible service, crowds, and tripping over kids.

    These motherfuckers are the slowest people in the world. By the time I finished my meal I was already hungry again. Had to have been there at least 2 hours and only got one refill on my water. Smh

    It's El Torito? The "pioneer in creating fresh, authentic Mexican" food? Who are they fooling? You get what do you expect lousy drinks and tasteless "gringo-ized" food.

    We are not getting good service. The waiter kept ignoring us. I had to look for a manager to get served. The tip is going downhill.
