Eltorito grill in irvine has much better service! – It was a huge disapointment as far as the waiters go! Our waiter refused to make a change we requested not once but twice. Whatever happened to the customer comes first? However, the service in Irvine is outstanding! That's where we will eat instead.
El Torito – Great restaurant! Their food is very good. The totillas and sweet butter they served before dinner is the best!
Longest dinner – My husband and I used to love El Torito Grill. We've been very disappointing the last couple of time we have been there. The tortillas are still good and fresh. The food service is very slow and not very pleasant. The entries are ok but very inconsistent.
Perfect for Appetizers and Drinks – While I love eating dinner here, my girlfriends and I go all the time just to pig out on hand made tortillas, chicken tacquitos and margaritas. The bar is especially packed on game nights and is fairly popular with the after-work crowd. Afternoons, though, are much less crowded.
This upscale extension of the El Torito chain takes the standard Mexican eatery to the next level. – In Short
Building on the already-successful chain of family restaurants, the Grill offers a slicker version of the typical Mexican restaurant. Its fluorescent '80s sign and volcano-rock bar gives way to warm, earthy Southwestern decor in the dining area. The food is prepared with only fresh ingredients (watch tortillas made on-site), with highlights including fajitas, chili relleno and carne asada. Visit the bar for its great weekday happy hour and extensive array of tequilas.
I used to live in Irvine, I moved to GA. Big mistake.
but anyway El Torito is the best resturant in the world and I miss it alot, I always go there when I visit Calif. I love Sunday brunch. the food is great and the waiters are the best, so friendly.
I miss my restaurant.
