We decided to try this place in South Orange and really enjoyed the meal. The service was great and I liked the sangria. My carnitas dinner was very tasty. We will definitely stop in here again.

My husband and I used dine there in the early 90's. While on the neighborhood, visiting Seton Hall, with our youngest, we dropped in. We felt in love again... now my kids are hooked! The best Mexican food...so worth the hour drive!!

Standard Mexican fare with a few uncommon items. Separate bar and dining areas. Somewhat lively place with a good atmosphere. I like the shrimp pepian (pumpkin sauce). Has a full bar. Skip the Sangria. Excellent service.

This is the second time I have had issues with Toro Loco, and I'm done. I met two of my friends here tonight at 4pm, however I arrived at 4:05 because of traffic. The moment my friends sat down they were pressured to order because...More

Ordered the empanada appetizer, it was okay but we didn't finish it. I ordered a veggie plate specifically to try an avocado tostada. Turns out that's just a single corn chip (yes a chip) with guacamole on it. Husband ordered steak fajitas. No one came...More
