Healthy OPTIONS × fresh ingredients


Bienvenidos! Welcome to El Toro, a family favorite since 1979. Local family owned and operated, dedicated to provide our customers an experience that reflects our culture’s hospitality and delicious flavors. Influenced by Jalisco region recipes, we believe our style of Mexican food will carry over the same pleasures enjoyed in our hometown, to your experience here with us. Our restaurants are designed using traditional decor which invite a family friendly environment, ideal for celebrating special occasions or to enjoy a casual lunch or dinner. Each location offers full service cantinas providing all the bar staples and tasty margarita concoctions, using quality ingredients. Expect prompt and friendly service when you come in for a full dining experience. We also offer takeout or delivery (through third party apps such as Uber Eats). Welcome to the El Toro Family!
