Eating authentically prepared food lets you taste the very essence of a country and draws far fewer angry glares than chewing on its national flag. Dine without incident with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at El Torito Café in Henderson.
Family owned for three generations, El Torito Café whips up zesty south-of-the-border favorites accented with scratch-made salsas and enchilada sauces that are prepared fresh every day. The menu offers a selection of comforting Mexican classics, such as guacamole dip ($5) and nachos grande ($8.95). Mix and match hard- or soft-shell tacos, enchiladas, tamales, or chili relleno with El Torito’s hearty combination dinners ($7.95–$10.95), which are served with rice, beans, and a choice of salad or meaty albondigas soup. Veggievores can fill their food tanks with herbaceous options such as the bean-and-cheese nachos ($6) that pair perfectly with a frozen margarita, available in a variety of fruity flavors and optional brain freezes.
El Torito Café
Flavor is the focus at El Torito Cafe, whose exterior––like a burrito––is wrapped around a colorful filling. Inside, burgundy booths and a mural depicting a mariachi band contribute to the vibrant ambiance, which is permeated by the scents of tamales stuffed with spiced, shredded beef. Enchiladas come with one of seven fillings, including carne asada and green-chili pork, and sides of rice and beans. To complement each dish, the staff mixes a selection of chilly margaritas.
