    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

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.
