Open since 1976, El Torero Restaurant & Bar conjures authentic Mexican flavors with their traditionally crafted lunches and dinners. Diners can sample the tasty harmony of the botana mix ($4.75 lunch, $7 dinner), an opening act that stages nachos, a quesadilla, and a taquito with back-up scoops of lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream that will happily perform an encore if ordered a second time. El Torero's meal-makers craft chiles rellenos ($6.50 lunch, $10.75 dinner) by packing poblano peppers with loads of beef or cheese. The pescado a la diablo releases a tilapia fillet into spicy chipotle currents before burying it under a reef of zesty veggies ($11.50 dinner). Finish off clingy cravings with a pastelillo ($2.75), a fried pie stuffed with strawberries or peaches that breaks up with hunger via a polite, sweet hug.

El Torero Restaurant & Bar

Since 1979, a collection of family chefs has filled El Torero Restaurant & Bar's dining room with the aromas of authentic Mexican cuisine. Equipped with a catch of fresh ingredients, chefs drizzle chicken with special mole, green, and garlic sauces, and broil prime skirt steak before topping it with zucchini or poblano peppers. In the construction of their fleet of specialty enchiladas, cooks sauté shrimp and melt savory cheeses before en-rainbowing the whole ensemble with colorful veggies.

Outside the kitchen, bartending brethren supplement bites with margaritas forged from 100% agave tequila, and fruit cocktails concocted from the likes of Curacao and amaretto. Tall, vibrant purple booths cradle patrons more effectively than a robotic grandmother, and floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate gentle pastel-yellow walls.
