Ate here recently for the first time and it was a real treat. The margaritas tasted like they were scratch made, beer cold, really good salsa, fajitas really full of flavor, portions large and total reasonable. All boxes checked. 75 minute drive but plan to go back soon. We are fortunate to have about a dozen Mex restaurants closer by,... More

The food is great and you get huge portions. My frozen margarita was melted when it got to the table but they brought another at no charge.

Recently stopped at El Torito while on a motorcylce ride through VA. Read the reviews on Tripadvisor and thought it was worth a try. We were pleasantly surprised with how good it was. Great guacamole, Carnitas Tacos and fairly mild salsa. Wait staff was very friendly and we were served with a smile. Would definitely recommend this place....
