We used our credit card to pay and then find out the next day that someone frauded our account because more was taken out than what our ticket was. I've always enjoyed eating at El Toro's, probably for the last 25 years, but I am very disappointed that the help was dishonest.

El Toro has been in Baytown for 50+ years and I remember going as a child. A restaurant doesn't stay in business for this long without having good food at a reasonable price. Their old restaurant on Bayway Drive is still in existence. The restaurant on Garth Road is relatively new and very large with plenty of seating. Even so,... More

El Toro has been a fixture in the area for over 60 years, and their experience and attention to detail in their menu bears that out! There simply isn't a better restaurant for authentic Tex-Mex. The location on Garth Road has recently been expanded to include an outdoor patio accompanied by additional parking. If you are looking for something beyond... More

Their salsa chips are very good, you don't wait long for food, the fajita meat here is very good. One unique item no other Restaurant has is the ahi tuna salad - it is so damn good!

The food was good; the margaritas were great. They were busy but the staff handled things well. Only negative is we had to wait 45 mins past our reservation time!

I've been eating at El Toro Mexican Restaurant for years and I have always enjoyed the food. However, I've had to reduce the frequency of my visits because the price of the food is getting much too high. They are pricing my family out. The green sauce is amazing. I have enjoyed almost everything I have eaten there. The fajitas... More

Food service and restaurant are excellent. Very nice for lunch or dinner. Seems like a hot spot for light night life. Weekends have band and the patio area is very nice. Lots of parking and spacious area. Highly recommend.
