El Toro is a new mexican restaurant in Robbinsdale, located on Hwy 81/Broadway & 41st Ave. Part of the El Loro family of mexican restaurants throughout the Twin Cities. This is one of my favorite from between the 2 I have tried so far.
Must haves: Fajitas, tacos, quesadillas, seafood enchiladas and nachos- anything with chicken or seafood as they seem to be bigger crowd pleasers with my co-tasters. The guac was very fresh although the salsa was once perfect (I prefer chunky) and another visit it was more picante (more watery). Next visit I'm trying the taco salad- looked very appetizing from a neighboring table.... Also of note the cook is from Iztapa, I believe and from what the server/cashier told me, and exceptional with seafood even though it is not on the menu- just ask! If the seafood enchiladas are any indication they may have a whole new restaurant in the making specializing in seafood!
Service **** 4 out of 5 stars- very friendly and helpful in making suggestions
Price *** 3 for average most meals between $ 5-12 Some of the specialities run at $22 for two people.
Entrees All very flavorful courtesy of their awesome cook!
Dessert- Must try flan if your a custard freak like myself- swims in carmel and melts in your mouth!
