“The best and most authentic Mexican food in the area!!!”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

My family and I have been going to Torero's since it opened in 1998 (if not earlier). My parents lived in California for 16 years and know what good Mexican food is, so when we moved to North Carolina, they had to find a Mexican place where we could satisfy our cravings. Torero's has been that place - by far the best Mexican restaurant in the area! They use real cheese (most places do not), good meat, and authentic flavors. Everything is pretty cheap and everything is very good. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We have gotten to really know the owner over the years, and I know this is one of the main reasons that the restaurant staff is so nice. We come about once every two weeks because we can't get enough of their food. I'm not sure why Torero's isn't rated number one on TripAdvisor...it's that good. I don't think people around here know what real Mexican food tastes like. I 100% recommend going to Torero's the next time you want really good authentic Mexican food!

“Excellent In Every Way !”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

What a great place! We have now eaten at Torero's 4 or 5 times since moving to Cary a few months ago. OMG this place is a good find. The menu has many very unique dishes. Best variety of flavors we have ever had, and we have had more than our share of Mexican from coast to coast and in Mexico. The portions are huge. The value is excellent. Always great service. Had the good fortune of talking with the owner on our last visit, he is terrific guy who loves what he does, it was obvious he really cares about the customer's satisfaction. Food prices are very good. Top-Shelf Margaritas are wonderful and priced right - you can even get a 1/2 pitcher if you ask; we think its just the right amount for two people. I believe you will find that this palace is busy for a reason.

“Best Mexican around”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

We love Torero's! We lived in NC years ago and fell in love with the two Durham locations. When we recently moved back to NC, we lived closer to the Cary location. We have never had bad experiences at any of the restaurants. Now, we have three girls who can be hard to please. The staff is always patient and helpful. I just adore the salsa and rice. I could eat buckets of both. Everyone we have ever taken to this restaurant has enjoyed the food as well.

“Food poisoning and rudeness”
Reviewed 5 April 2010

My Daughter and grandchildren had lunch here and before we all got up to leave the staff started seating people at our booth with us...If that wasn't rude enough for the staff to do that to us...the rude customers actually sat down with us!

My Son ate here with some friends on a different occasion and spent time in the ER with food poisoning!!!

My family and friends will never eat here again!!!!!!!
