A well-known bar in Concord, El Torito on Diamond Blvd is the ideal location for a delicious menu. The casual atmosphere and reasonable prices allow visitors to focus on what matters: the delightful service.
If you're trying to plan your week, most people will share that later in the week (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) is the best time to visit. Also, you'll definitely want to take advantage of its outdoor seating when you want to soak up a bit of that California sun. It should be noted that casual attire is encouraged. Also, the background noise can get a little loud at times.
If you're on the lookout for the perfect spot for family or friends, it's been reviewed as a solid option for large groups and kids. In addition to its convenient take-out menu, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town. Or, if you're looking for the perfect spot to unwind after work, it's got a phenomenal happy hour and a pretty broad selection behind the bar.
One of the better traditional Mexican joints in the area, a visit to El Torito is definitely worthwhile. Don't worry about trying to find a spot on the street, as visitors to the restaurant do have access to a private parking lot nearby.
