    Veggie fajitas are killer. Sit at the bar to avoid the table wait

    I like El Toritos food and of course the location is awesome but the service and management is not the best in town.

    Limited table with power except in the bar. Guess where we are. Chicken tortilla soup is fantastic.

    Worst experience ever. Our server must be new. Doesn't know anything! Waiting 15 min for an app that come to find out was never rung in. Bartender pockets money and doesn't ring drinks in. Over it.
