Had a good experience at El Toreo. My 1st trip was solo so this one was with my husband. We both enjoyed the chips & salsa, burritos & service.

We ordered Pollo Supremo, Pollo Monterey, and Pollo Asado. Each dish was great. The chips and salsa were good too, a little spicy. Our waiter was very attentive and we were in and out very quickly.

With two lights burned out on their sign and darkened windows, we couldn't tell if this place was open. It was and it was good! I had a chicken burrito that was fresh and delicious. My partner is vegetarian and was able to find plenty...More
