We were greeted and seated quickly. Nice Mexican décor and surroundings. Inexpensive traditional Mexican fare. Plentiful servings, friendly service and the prices are very affordable.

The food was bad at best. The cheese enchilada and bean burrito came with tomato sauce. It tasted like Chef Boyardee! The beans and rice were not good at all. The chips and salsa consisted of stale, bland thick tortilla chips and the salsa too was bland tomato sauce. The guacamole was runny. Three people (2 adults and 1 child)... More

We have been to El Torero many times. The food is very tasty; my favorite is the stuffed poblano peppers. The service is good and fast. Would recommend this to anyone looking for mexican food in the Granite City area.

The chimichangas are terrific and they make a great marguerita. We ate here with our neighbors and all of us were very pleased with our orders.
