...and they really don't know what good Mexican food is, you can bring them here. Go on a sunny afternoon when you're not really hungry. Order the appetizer sampler, a big bowl of made-at-your table guacamole (this they do well) and a few margaritas and soak in the Southern California marina scene. You will have a pleasant experience.
As for the rest of their food... standard chain food. Gringo Mexican, California-style. Don't let the fact that there's a wait make you think the food will be better than it really is.
Mediocrity, thy name is El Torito.
Pros: great location, guamole is very good
Cons: , not great food, overpriced
