Toro loco what can I say but the best Mexican food in the tristate area and the staff are friendly and add that touch of Mexico. Their steak or chicken fajitas are great .

Owned and serviced by Mexicans. Large portions of delicious Mexican food. Stays busy and full especially at dinner time. It is the best Mexican food in the area. Located close to the Murals and close to the antique shops. A great place to eat!

We were in town for a graduation at Shawnee State and my son suggest going here to eat because it was a favorite of his and all of his buddies. It was a great time. The drinks, food and service were awesome. And, the bill was very reasonable.

Toro Loco has something for everyone. The menu has over 100 choices! They even have hot dogs, cheeseburgers, pizza, and french fries on the kids menu. There must be a large freezer somewhere! Speaking of size, the enormous interior doesn't seem possible in such a small building (think Tardis . . .), but there is no lack of seats and... More

I had the enchiladas and a beer.. I was served quickly and the food was quite good. I will be back here again. I was here 5 years ago and the food and service was good then. A very nice family restaurant.

I gave this restaurant 3 stars, as my wife felt her lunch was average, while I thought my lunch was above average, but not great. I ordered the Camaron Bandito -- grilled shrimp with queso, rice and beans (although I omitted the rice as I restrict my carbs). I found the shrimp nicely seasoned, and grilled perfectly. The queso was... More

Your standard Mexican fare, but food was delicious and fast! Margaritas were good and fairly priced. Daily specials. They also have pitchers of mixed drinks. We did not order one, but it was an interesting option.
