    The chicken fajitas were delicious. Best I’ve had at this location. My husband enjoyed the sizzling chicken enchiladas as well.

    We went for Sunday Brunch, food was excellent. My only complaint is it was so busy that it was noisy that we could barely hear each other talk.

     food was good as usual. I had to Baja combo. My wife had two sour cream, chicken enchiladas. It was unusually busy, but the servers was excellent. Our server name is Milvia . she was very busy waiting on many tables, but was able to do a great job taking care of all of our needs.Thank you Milvia.

    I reserved a table online and ask for a booth and they end up setting us on the old table on a open area and lots of boost was available and the host was grumpy not even a smile. Our waiter didn't even refilled or drinks or checked up on us. I will never go there again. The one at San Bernardino hospitality El torito was 100% better good service and everything

    Came here for brunch with my 9 year old daughter after church and as usual it was delicious and the Service is wonderful! The brunch price seems to be getting higher and higher for the adults (currently 36.00 for an adult (12+) was 32.00 previously and then 20 something before then). Still pretty affordable so I can’t complain too much. Total with tip came out to 65 dollars for the two of us! Unlimited mimosas also 🎉Great selection of food and treats for you little ones!

    Please inform patrons of additional charge for drink refills.. mind you, this was for a child's apple juice. We received a small cup, filled with ice, and cup was 1/3 full of juice. Wasn't informed of refill charge until we saw it on the bill. No where on the menu does it indicate additional charges for such.

    Went here before a concert in Ontario. With it being Valentine’s Day, the restaurant was not as busy as I anticipated. We were sat quickly as we had reservations. Our drink order was taken and we ordered an appetizer. The appetizer came and then the drinks some time later. We all had the black diamond margarita. For the description and the price, it seemed like a good deal. But it had very little alcohol and the “extra pour” in the shaker was mostly melted ice and only filled the glass maybe 1/3. The food came out later and was ok. I can’t say it’s was great or even good. The flavors were bland and it was haphazardly put together. Much like the appetizer. Previous to this time, it’s been several years since I’ve been to an El Torito. It’ll probably be several years before I decide to go again. On a positive note, the wait staff was friendly and had a great attitude.

    Was excited to go to an el Torito. It’s been years. There were 8 of us there. 4 adults and 4 children. It takes a lot for me to complain… It was the worst service experience. 1. They never marked me as checking into my open table reservation. We were there! 2. Took a while to get our first drinks. 3. We ordered tableside guacamole but had no chips and salsa to eat them with. We had to ask a couple times. 4. We asked if we can order after 45 minutes being there. He said he would be right back but didn’t come back for another 20 minutes. 5. No one had silverware. 6. Took forever to get other drinks. 7. After the food came, we asked for several things that didn’t show up. It was a mess. We were there for 3 hours. We purposely made a reservation at 6:45 hoping to be out of there by 8:15 so the kids could sleep early to get good sleep before a competition. We didn’t leave until 9:30!

    We got sat 30 minutes after our reservation time. We asked for a table rather than a booth to accommodate my small children and high chairs but we were sat at a booth and were told it would be another 30 minutes if we wanted a table. The food and the service was fantastic. Reservations and notes mean nothing to that hostess.

    If I need to wait 30-45 minutes each time with the reservations then reservation system is meaningless. This is the third time at the same location and I am disappointed. If the food was not that good I would not recommend or come back.

    The Sunday Brunch ambience was loud but fun, the server was great, she did wonderful considering how busy she was. However, I think if there was someone assigned to handle just the champagne, the customers would not have to wait for champagne and for plates to be picked up off the table. Food as always delicious with a great variety of dishes to suit you appetite.

    Service is usually good at the Ontario El Torito. But today our waiter was that very attentive. He never came back to fill up our water glasses. Once the food arrived, He never came back to see if we needed anything. And we had a flag him down to get the bill. We will go back because the service is generally good.

    We enjoy coming here because it’s good for large parties. We also like to use our AAA discount when we come. We typically come on Sunday and were told that we couldn’t use it in 12/31 because it was a holiday. I found this surprising as 12/31 is not a holiday at all. In fact it was dead and the food was sitting for long periods of time and wasn’t as good as it usually is because of that. We came new years EVE and not on the holiday but now not sure when we will be back.
