El Torero ₱ ₱ ₱

Down Whitebridge to the Stein Mart parking lot next to the Sally Beauty Supply. If you get to the Play it Again Sports you've gone too far.

We left El Torero feeling like The Pet Shop boys and asking ourselves, "What did [we] do to deserve this?" Walking up to the front door we first noticed the bathroom tile on the exterior facade. Stepping inside, Nacho startled himself with an accidental camera flash as he attempted to get a photo of the restaurant's 70s-lake-house wood paneling.

We ran to the very last booth in the back as a huge ball of fire erupted from a wok in the kitchen. We were soon approached by a man sweating profusely and wearing a hairnet. Clearly this place cares about customer service because the same employee that cooks your food serves it to you. A dedicated employee ensures your meal meets their low standards all the way from bag of frozen chicken terriyaki to your tortilla.

Nacho's Tip

If you're desperate enough to eat here, then your phone is probably dead too. Go to the booth in the back right. There's a half-uncovered electrical outlet on level with the seat.

Chacho's Truth

  • This place sucked and this post was equally shitty. Sorry.
  • We forgot to time it but the food came out fast.
  • They serve Cherry Coke and milkshakes.
  • The basket for the chips looks like they bought it at a church supply store.
  • Don't eat at Mexican restaurants that have woks.
  • You can't hack your life.

The menu was extremely large.

The menu was extremely large and oriented in an unexpected manner. It was a custom large paper size. The designer really outdid themselves with this innovation.
