I'm a vegetarian and can be very picky, but I love El Toro's vegetarian options. They have a great poblano pepper and I love their salsa and chips.

Traveling through Danville and needing supper, we stopped at El Toro. Nice clean place with friendly service. A basket of chips and delicious spicy salsa were on our table quickly, along with beverages. We filled our bellies with cheesy enchiladas and tacos, even delicious flan. A nice stomach full of food, smiles on our faces, and not too expensive.

Friendly staff, very good pricing for quality and quantity of meal. Margaritas of any kind are always wonderful.

I was in town for work and I was able to visit my family for dinner being that I was born and raised in the area. The food was very good and the staff was available to make sure your needs are taken care off.

My family and I have gone here many times over the years. The food has always been top notch, and the service is even better. They won't let you leave hungry.

I have been there 4 or 5 times with other people because they wanted to good. I myself don't much care for the taste of their food. Other people like it but I am not a fan. I like Mexican food but not EL Toro

We had a party of 12 on a Friday night. There was no wait. They had a group of 4 true Mexican's that went from table to table singing and playing music (for tips). It was pretty neat. The food all came out at the same time and all meals were good, fresh and hot. I ordered beef nachos, which... More
