El Torito - San Bernardino
Using the freshest ingredients and boldest flavors, our menu offers a range of quintessential Mexican food, along with culinary innovations we know guests will love. We are known best for our tableside preparations, including our made-to-order guacamole and flame-grilled fajitas, which arrive sizzling to the table.
Our standard is great, and we don’t do anything without passion. Over 60 years, we’ve learned a lot about Mexican food, like how not to mess it up.

Great food. We got happy hour appetizers and drinks. Service was a little slow but our waiter was really nice and attentive.
Everything was fantastic! Our Server was also awesome ! We got seated immediately with our reservations we booked !
I have gone to El Toritos many times for lunch or dinner but the brunch is amazing. Everything is fresh and taste amazing.
The brunch and service was very good
It’s was birthday and the waiter was told. And nothing happen no singing no flan nothing. Very very disappointed. Not sure if I would go back for a special occasion. It was also very hit in there air conditioner not work . And really loud music you couldn’t hear. Not really happy about last night at all
Fajitas were a bit tough, overall great meal and service! Their freezer was broken, so no deep fried ice cream here 🤣
The food was good, however, determine if you want to go during brunch. Table with a large party was extremely loud, spilling drinks, and food all over the floor.
All 4 of us ordered different items & all of the items were hugs portions of food. All of us took some left-overs home for the next day, yummy.
Food was really cold the only thing the was hot was the plate but the food was extactly cold aswell as there was a hair on my side beans
Great food! Overall service was amazing! Would definitely recommend!
great breakfast menu. had a blast! bottomless mimosas were the best part 😋
Service was fantastic, Drinks were great and Food was delicious. Love the music. Definitely a wonderful date night place.
Food as always was great. One disappointment was the Ignited Fajitas Supremas. There was no "Ignited," like the menu says. It was merely delivered to the table. Can't complain about the quality, however. Service was attentive. Good place to eat. There's plenty from which to choose in the Mexican food category.
Great tasting food and drinks. Definitely coming back.

No wait since we reserved with Open Table. It was Mother's Day weekend and crowded but we were taken to our table right away. Great food and excellent service.
Thanks so much for your feedback! We are happy to hear about your experience. We appreciate you taking the time to share. - Xperience Restaurant Group
Great service, minimum wait time, no rush dinning, very enjoyable.
Worst service ever! Made a reservation, the hostess said she’d be right with us then forgot and after 20 minutes we asked what the problem was and she said she had forgotten about us! Once seated it took 15 minutes for someone to come to our table and greet us and take a drink order! Service was slow all evening! We won’t go back!
It was a wonderful lunch! The food was delicious and our server was excellent!
I was so disappointed. We have always gone to the restaurant. We had a reservation and they seated us next to the waitress station when there was a bunch of other seats and when I asked they said they didn’t gave any when was not true. We had to ask 3 times fir chips and we only saw our waitress 4 times. Things need to improve or we are not coming back.
Food and drinks were very good. Waiter was very friendly and attended to us often.
Very Clean, fresh food and our server along with the woman working the Taco Bar were very nice and welcoming!
We had a reservation with a party of 3.. was told by the hostess that they don’t honor reservations 😳 and we had to wait for about 40 minutes to be seated. Once seated the service was “okay” given the fact that it was a nice grey hair with spilt ends in the table salsa. Probably wouldn’t return..
Not sure if they saw our reservation through open table. We had to make our request again upon arrival.
Had a pleasant dining experience. It was nice to be able to dine inside again.
Everyone blames COVID-19. Parties and COVID continues and bad service is blamed on COVID. Made reservations to this El Torito in San Bernardino because it’s the one closest to our home. We try to stay and support local businesses but sometimes it’s not appreciated. Had reservations for 7:30pm. We arrived at 6:40 thinking it was going to be packed since COVID restrictions were lifted, but it wasn’t the case. We checked in and noticed that people kept coming in and as they came in a lot were seated. We waited paitiently till 7:30 and my wife asked if it was still a long wait and the hostess told my wife that it just hit 7:30 and that it was going to be another 10 minutes. We continued to wait and yes at exactly 10 minutes they call us.
We follow the hostess to our table and we sit down and hostess seems to be in a bad mood.
Our waiter comes and asks us what we would like to drink but seems distracted like if he’s trying to go talk to someone. We ordered drinks and drinks came in quick. We ordered food and it’s 4 of us. Food took 30 minutes to get to our table. We ran out of chips and our waiter would just pass by and see we were out of chips, but wouldn’t stop or ask us if we needed something else. As soon as drinks were finished he was quick to ask if we wanted more but didn’t ask the kids for their drinks.
Food arrived and didn’t have the waiter show up again till we were done eating. I noticed that he was real attentive with the table behind us. Chips were served 3 times to them and he spent around 25 minutes all together in the time that we were there which was about 1 hour. Won’t be going back to this location. Well try Ontario Mills next time.
Worst food we had. Never going for breakfast there again.
Got to the restaurant 10 mins before our reservation and was told it was still a 30 minute wait until we can be seated. Then we saw big parties of people come and be seated right away. Turns out the host never check us in and if I didn’t stop to ask what the delay was, we would have never been seated.
Food order delivered incorrect. Food was lukewarm. Drinks not refilled timely.
Bartender solid, Margs are on point. The rest is just average.
Good food and great service. I recommend a visit.
Everything went well. They have outside seating and tables are spaced well apart. The food was okay. I will go back again.
We were never seated, apparently these reservations don’t mean anything to this restaurant and when you arrive you have to wait in queue. It was over a 30 minute wait with 2 parties in-front of us. We left
Wonderful thank you... would be nice if el torito invested in some type of music jukebox
Very good food however service could’ve been better, way better.
It was a cold and windy day and they did not provide heaters. The food was great but it was uncomfortable to eat due to being cold.
Food is mostly filler and most meats where over seasoned with pepper, cheap Champagne, and they add a surcharge to your bill without prior notification.
Sunday brunch. The cost is to high if you don’t drink. The food is good but the experience is not the same as before Covid. Not their fault, they are doing their best.
Great Mescal drinks, bacon warp shrimp is worth trying.
The staff here do an excellent job. They nailed service. The happy hour is a great value. The nachos with steak were just what we needed!
At first server was on top of it, but then there would be long periods of absence. My friend and I ordered the same fajitas salad. It was mediocre. All lettuce, missing several key ingredients - like avocado, and old tasting chicken. Dissatisfied with the meal. Cocktail was great.
