This is the best Mexican I’ve had in Lexington. Fajitas were amazing, homemade tortilla chips were among the best I’ve ever eaten, delicious guacamole. Staff is phenomenal! Highly recommend

Just finished a great visit out for dinner after many months. El Toro is an absolutely wonderful Mexican restaurant. Service is always nice and attentive. Food comes quick and margarita special is good and stiff. This place has been around for a while because its service and food have been excellent and continues to be !!!!

They can read your mind. Your food is ready before you even order it. It's really something.

If you want to experience steak tacos on another level, you have to order from this place. There are two different steak tacos on the menu. Do not choose the wrong one. I mean, I am sure the other ones are also delicious but the Steak Tacos are on another level. Three soft tacos loaded with crispy, delicious steak and cheese dip. That's it. So simple yet so amazing. I am also a huge fan of their Queso Fundido with chorizo because it is melted cheese topped with chorizo in a scorching hot skillet. Not cheese dip with chorizo, melted cheese. Not enough words to describe how delicious it is wrapped in a flour tortilla. Margaritas are also delicious. There are not a lot of places that drive to another state to enjoy it this is one of them. Thank goodness my daughter decided to stay in Lexington after graduating UK! But I would still come here from Ohio for these tacos. Sorry no pictures I was lost in the moment!
