If you want good Mexican food come here. We've been eating here for 20 years. It's always good, always fast. Always the best. I can't say enough about El Torero. They are my favorite. There are a couple of locations. Inexpensive. The chips are thin and crispy. Best in town. Cheese dip can't be beat. You will love this place!

Very good authentic Mexican food. Excellent service and barely a wait to get your food soon after ordering. Great margaritas and daiquiris. I highly recommend this place for two to groups of 20!

When near Stone Mountain, I must stop for a meal at El Torero. There are other locations around Atlanta as well. I always get the enchiladas as they are so good I just cannot miss them. The queso is yum as are the nachos. The kids get tacos, always, and say they are the best! Good atmosphere, nice folks, great... More

Very good Mexican food without the high price tag. Service is fast, but not so friendly. The servers don't smile. They are helpful if you ask a question, but they seem to be more engrossed in their duties that being cordial. This place does get crowded, especially on Saturdays. But if you want a quick Mexican meal, this is the... More

Food was in fact good. The service on the other hand was beyond sub par. After ordering we never saw the waitress again. Not to check on the food, not to refill the water (something expected when eating spicy, salty food), no bill... Don't bother asking for a manager unless you feel the need for attitude usually reserved for a... More

Almost before you sit down there is Salsa and Chips on the table along with water. Good service. The homemade salsa and guacamole dip are so good that since I live 3/4 of a mile from there I stop frequently for a take-home container. Of course, I take their chips along too.

Known as El "T" by the locals, this restaurant is a neighborhood gathering place. You can't go in without seeing someone you know. When the kids are home from college El T is usually one stop they always make.
