It is ok friendly service. The food is a bit on the high cost side of Mexican. Ok unless you just want a cheap meal.

We have stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn several times and wondered about El Toreo. We decided to try it tonight and we're glad we did! We were seated promptly by a friendly hostess, and our server appeared almost instantaneously. We decided to try the Margaritas, which were large and tasty! I tried the Flautas, and Arlene had the Camarones... More

We went here for dinner, after reading some of the bad reviews, and we had a Great experience, they grilled up some Jalepeno ' s for us and they weren't even on the menu. I would recommend this place to eat when you are in town.

The prices are reasonable and the service was decent. The food was just OK, nothing special. We were a large group and we were seated quickly.

Stopped in for a late evening, light meal. Ordered (3) taco special to go. Food was mediocre at best. My wife told me not to stop and I didn't listen. San Diego area tacos are my measuring stick for tacos. My order didn't measure up at all. Will not go there again.

While on a road trip, stopped here after checking into our hotel. We were tired and hungry! This was surprisingly tasty. The food was served quickly. Very reasonable prices.

The service is good and the staff is nice. The prices are also decent, but the food is, like most local Mexican restaurants, just average. The one gem in this place is the chili rellenos. When I need a chili relleno fix, this is the only place that comes close in Valdosta.
