OK, we tend to sit at the bar here. OK, the food is not what some might call traditional Mexican food. OK, when we go in Oscar asks if we want "the usual" to drink. OK, maybe we go here a lot. We love it,...More

We moved to the area in 2007 and enjoy coming to Toro Loco - we come at least twice a month and are always treated very well - the food is very good and fresh - we enjoy our margarita and the fajitas

Not a cheap, inexpensive mexican restaurant. They have a number of top shelf Margarita choices, a nice lounge area downstairs, and good food. Good for family of friends. Very good salsa and chips, nice and crisp. The desserts are good also. The whole-fish dishes are...More

Come here for the Frozen Margaritas. The food tastes better after a glass or two. It's kind of a dive bar. Do not get the nachos. They are not what you expect them to be.

This is an all round easy option for family dinners. No stress, comfortably noisy, the atmosphere very laid back and accomodating. Food is okay, nothing to write home about; If you are in good company then you won't notice the food. The bar on a...More
