Great Mexican food! Service is excellent. Gotta have the drink (no alcohol) Horchata!!! It's like rice milk with cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. I always get 2 glasses!

El Toro is aways very consistent. Very good service once again and great Mexican food! El Toro Loco and Burritos Mexicanos were both outstanding. Very good spot in Shakopee and easily the best Mexican food in the area.

Visited at supper time and the place was about 1/2 full. Service was slow, the food, though large portions was mediocre. The chips were greasy but the salsas were good as were the selections of hot sauces. Probably won't be coming back.

The service was very slow. It took them 20 minutes to take our order. The food was only warm and not hot. Good selections.

If you don't have the chips and salsa in front of you within 1 minute of your arrival it's unusual. Service is quick and friendly. Their Happy Hour iincludes half price appetizers. Shrimp nachos are great. I usually ask for the chips on the side rather than with the shrimp dish and order soft taco shells to make a wrap.

Plan to return because there are not many options in Shakopee. Food is good, and I believe tailored to the local palate. Portions are generous. Salsa has no pica, etc....

We ate lunch here on a Saturday in late November 2015 and had a nice meal. The server and the ambiance were nice and this place is large inside. Seems clean and the food was good. I like that you can get either corn or flour tortillas on many of the entrees, I prefer to get corn and many times... More

We just happened to pick this restaurant to eat dinner. I enjoyed it, but it is just standard Mexican fare. The same exact menu I have seen at many other Mexican restaurants.
