Used to be great, major downhill changes recently

I went to El Torero regularly when I lived in Duluth with no problems - I don't expect a sophisticated atmosphere and actually I liked the simple place with neat photos. We always had great food. Over the last year I've visited the Peachtree Ind location since I've moved back south. The wait staff has become increasingly inattentive and at times flat out rude. They sit around in tables talking to each other while c... view more

overrated, overpriced, rude wait staff

The food at this place has DOUBLED in price over the last few years making it completely not worth your while. At this point the food isn't worth the grimy floors, ridiculously snotty wait staff, and terrible service in general. For years we've marveled that the staff are so consistently rude and obnoxious to paying and loyal customers, but it didn't seem to stop the flow of patrons, until the prices escalated and th... view more

Use To Be Better

When this place first opened we decided to give it a try. We were elated to discover that the food was very good, much better than the other Mexican restaurants in the area. The beef was definately a better quality which was a selling point for us alone. At that time there were hardly any customers and we were worried that the place wouldn't survive, but that didn't last long. Soon enough they were packed! We were lo... view more

Family Favorite for years!!

My family has been coming here for years. My parents lived in TX and they say that ""El T"" (as we like to call it) is the best Mexican food they've had since they moved back to GA. And that says a lot, because my family LOVES Mexican food. I eat at El Torero at least once a week; there have been times when I've eaten it for several meals in a row!! I love their Chili Rellenos---they aren't battered and fried like... view more

Great little mexican spot

These guys make the strongest margaritas on the planet. Never left this place sober. The menu is pretty standard for a Mexican restaurant, but it's all good. The flautas are excellent, as is the carnitas. Really fast service. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but there are some cool underwater photos and a giant marlin mounted on the wall. I no longer live in the neighborhood, but I make a few trips a ye... view more

Great Basic Mexican Food and KICK-@$$ Margaritas!

Who cares if it's not ""authentic"" Tex-Mex? I'm sure there's better Mexican food elsewhere in Atlanta...for a lot more money. Bottom line: El Torero makes tasty Mexican dishes at reasonable prices. We've been regular customers for years now...we don't call it El Torero, we call it ""the fish Mexican restaurant,"" for obvious reasons. Our kids love the fish on the walls. The Mexican Stew is my favorite. The sa... view more

Great Salsa!

One of my favorite mexican restaurants. Have been a customer for years. I have not found a better tasting salsa. El Torero salsa is very spicy, hot & taste homemade (not sure if it is)....also refill without asking! Their other menu items taste very good too. Nothing fancy but worth the price. Owner is an avid fisher so most restaurants display his trips all over the world. They seem to keep the same employees... view more

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!

We only go to the El Torero on Peachtree Industrial. We're regulars there. Now they don't even ask and just bring us bean dip and a pitcher of the Texas Margarita (strongest margaritas in town, I promise!) Food is delicious and served piping hot. Place is very spartan and simple. Don't expect mariachi bands or anything. Just go if you want to drink the best margaritas in town and have a very happy and full tumm... view more

Best salsa & chips in town!

I have been going to El Torero Mexican Resturant for several years now. The service is always fast, except Friday evenings... I think everybody goes there after work on Fridays! The salsa & chips are the best. Everything on the menu tastes great. My personal favorite is the chalupa, enchilada & relleno combo. It makes my tummy happy, happy! The service is usually fast, the food is ALWAYS served hot, not warm. Th sta... view more

Painfully Average

I'm from Dallas, TX. We know Tex-mex. This is painfully average. The chips and queso were fine, but my combination plate with a taco and enchilada were average at best. If you know good Tex-mex (American Mexican food), don't come here.
