When we are wanting good Mexican food this is where we go. The food tastes great and there is plenty of it. If you leave hungry it is your own fault. The prices are very reasonable. It is a small building so there are not...More

The portions here are giant and the service is genuinely nice, but after visiting here a few times, I think the food has become quite average. The bean chapula I ordered had very few beans and a lot of sour cream - the ratio/mix was...More

We stumbled across El Toro while in Lincoln visiting family. We are from Canada and really crave great Mexican food. Well I had an incredible lunch platter fit for a very hungry king. Had a big Tex-mex hard beef taco, a totally stuffed chicken chimichanga,...More

I am a Mexican food junkie. There is no in between. I either love it or hate it. El Toro rocked my world. But that was not good enough. I have a large family & when we eat out it is a big deal. Everyone...More

We frequent El Toro because it is close, has great Margaritas, and is always fast except this time. A little understaffed but still timely. Great Enchiladas and prices.

Great service, good chips and salsa, plentiful menu ( with some good vegetarian options) makes this restaurant a good choice for lunch or dinner. I personally don't care for the atmosphere - rather dark and dreary - but the rest makes up for it.

Great service, great food, and best Margeritas in town. Never disappointed. Wife had senior enchilada, and I had #5 enchilada with chile rellanos. Small restaurant but big on service. Our second go to restaurant in Lincoln.
