We Love Our Customers!
Read on to see how they feel about us.
We moved to Alachua from Fort Worth, Texas and knew what real Mexican food should taste like. We tried several places and could not find it until El Toro came to town. We go often for the great food and good service and we have come to know the staff as individuals and family. We really enjoy their company and they always seem glad to see us. Great food, great service and friendly staff…everyone should eat at El Toro! - Ruthie & Ron Moss
I love El Toro’s because I love the food, the decorations on the walls, and I LOVE the service too! The coloring pages are fun too! – Desni (age 9)
The food and service at El Toro is awesome! The salsa is the best around and everything is always so fresh. I would highly recommend El Toro! Get full at the bull! – Richard & Rebecca Baldwin
The food is wonderful and the price is very reasonable. But my favorite thing is that the owner is Christian and I find it very calming when I go in. He is always cheerful and always has a scripture displayed at the register. It’s nice to see this testimony and to know that the owner is not afraid to share his faith. – Kim McElroy
The queso and warmed tortilla chips are the greatest – no one makes it better! John and his staff are consistent with their excellent service and friendliness – no one ever has a bad day Their music is so enjoyable – they always play XM32! - Michelle
What we love about El Toro is the variety of menu options and a wonderful a la carte section. While the cheese quesadillas are my husband’s favorite, the fajita quesadillas are our joint favorite. I personally like making up my own dinner plate by mixing and matching different a la carte options. The best thing of all are the owners Patty and John, who are on site daily and have such a genuine interest in making sure the food and service are nothing less than excellent. The staff are always the best. going there to dine is like going to dinner with family. - Marion & Brent Booth
For a family of five to be able to enjoy great food and a great atmosphere is almost impossible. It’s so nice to know that we can get a big town taste in a small town setting. Every time we come it’s like we are family. To say we love El Toro would be an understatement. Thanks to all the staff and everyone involved that make each time we visit a great and wonderful experience. We would recommend El Toro to everyone we know. – The Mallard’s
We have been to many Mexican restaurants, El Toro is the best by far in cleanness, quality of food and service. We would recommend El Toro to anybody. We are definitely regulars! – Greg & Noel Thompson
Food is the right price and right portion. Love the people who remember my name and what I want to drink. It’s like coming home to eat with family. The queso is the best and addicting! - Dawn Mott
We eat a lot of Mexican food and have found that El Toro has the best salsa, fajitas, and white queso around! The staff are always friendly and more than accommodating, and it’s nice to know that your patronage is appreciated. - Charles & Angela Shore
We come from Waldo every Friday night for the chips & salsa and the Wallace Special. I could make a meal with just the chips and salsa. The staff is very, very friendly and know what we want before we order. This is the best Mexican Restaurant ever! - Nancy Kaye & Wallace
The food speaks for itself but when you add in the family atmosphere there is no other place we’d rather be. It’s like having a home cooked meal. – Kevin & Cindy Lacoste
El Toro is practically our dining room table. I’m pretty sure we eat more meals here than we eat at home. The food is great, and the value is wonderful. Even better, though, are the smiling faces and warm hearts that greet us at the door. - Jen
Great food and good people. We ate at 13th Street El Toro when I worked in Gainesville. So happy to see it move to Alachua! My favorite meal is chicken quesadillas topped off with a chocolate chimichanga. – Derek
