"My family and I hadn't been to El Torito Grill for quite some time. Since we had not been here for a while, we decided to share all of the entrees. The entree that stood out to all of us was the salmon entree. It has to be one of the best salmon dishes I've ever had. Also the mestique chicken salad was delicious. The service was a bit slow, but the overall experience was great."

"This was a farewell brunch for a co-worker and our server was great. Two people came about 1/2 hour late and the server took their order and got it in as quickly as possible. When it was time to pay, he asked if we wanted separate checks--I was impressed that he would be willing to do this for a group.
El Torito is a local favorite. Their made in-house tortillas are a real treat."

"Overall it was a good experience. The waiter noticed I did not eat the soup and asked why. It was mostly vegetables and hardly any chicken. If I wasn't on a high protein diet, I definitely would have eaten the whole thing. Instead, I hate some of my husband's delicious fajitas. The waiter took the soup off of the bill."

"The service was poor. They forgot part of one of our party's meal. We asked for chips and it took them a long time to bring them. They set up a very large table right in the middle of the restaurant with alot of people and the restaurant was already very loud. This place has declined in it's ratings."

"I asked for a booth for four (4) adults. The booth was in a corner and unable to accommodate four adults for seating, with the table so small that it was unable to hold the meals of four persons. The table assigned to us, should only have been assigned for two (2) guests. Two meals were fajitas and when served the requested corn tortes did not arrive with the meal. It became necessary to hunt down a server half way through our meal. We ran out of beverages half way through our meals also, which consisted of beer for the gentlemen and the ladies had Margaritas, still no server. Our companions complained throughout the meal of not having enough space to navigate their meal comfortably. With everything said and done, not a pleasant time with friends and paying out $135.00 for the experience."

"Chips and salsa along with freshly made tortillas and sweet butter are the complimentary appetizers. I did not like anything from the combo appetizer. It was disappointing. However, the chicken and steak fajitas had a wonderful taste with a hint of garlic."
