Quick friendly service chips and salsa always fresh. Large menu with something for everyone. Too many favorites to list them all so can not go wrong with the specialties.

Run by Mexicans and is delicious. You will need a doggy bag because the amount of food is ample. Lines go fast. Great place.

Toro Loco is the best Mexican food in the area. As a local chain, the Portsmouth location is the best by far. It has bigger portions, better food, and a large staff. Better yet, it has Modelo on tap!

We had delicious food and drinks. Took a bit to get service and drinks, however, once it was noticed we had better service the rest of the adventure!

We go to Toro Loco about 2 times a month. The service is fast and prices are good. They also have a full service bar. We've never had a bad meal or service.
