Here for the Sunday Brunch (it's been about a year) and I was definitely not impressed today. Buffet food was mostly lukewarm, all of the meat/pork dishes were so fatty they were mostly inedible. They had green macaroni salad even though St. Patrick's Day was 2 days ago! The service was good. Hopefully they're not on a downhill trend?

Food and service was fast.server was friendly. Generous portions. The specialty beans were very good. The sizzling burritos had a good punch of flavor and heat. Refried beans and rice were pretty typical of americanized Mexican.

If you are looking for Tex-Mex or Americanized Mexican food, then this is a good place. Their bars and restaurants are appropriately themed, the bar well stocked, and the food good. I can't see to get enough of the tableside guacamole.

Came here twice during my week-long stay in Ontario. A great place to have lunch with a good variety of Mexican cuisine. Buffet or menu options and you can have some members of your party do the buffet while others order off the menu (some restaurants don't allow this). Friendly staff and prompt service. Fairly priced.

This is my all time favorite Mexican restaurant I've visited so far. The food was delicious. The margaritas were as delicious as you'd expect with a nice selection of flavors. The service was great and the atmosphere was fun and upbeat. Would definitely recommend.

We were on our first night of our vacation. We choose El Torito because we had eaten there before. I ordered the apptz of Flautas and it was huge. They were the BEST Flautas I have ever had. We finished off our meal with the deep fried ice cream.

We were a party of ten. Four of us ordered Chile Relleno. Us four did not spend any money. Sadly this was not a good thing as the chilies were so tough we had trouble cutting them with a knife! The manager showed great concern and offered us something else, but we had no time so he comp'd us. Our... More
