Foursquare Tips

  • Never speak of El Toro Blanco. Unless of course youre talking about my 17lb Chinchilla of the same name. Everyone loves hearing about his hijinks.
  • Eat this: Guacamole, queso fundido, corn tamale, short-rib empanadas, chipotle shrimp tacos, churros
  • Fun vibe. Share the Queso Fundido & open-faced quesadilla, then order several shrimp & fish tacos. The Chili Rubbed Mango Margarita wins for best drink. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check!
  • If the Kardashians had a restaurant and threw a private party for the Jersey Shore cast, it would resemble El Toro Blanco.
  • Definitely bother the chef. He loves it. ETB4EVER
  • Start with the guacamole and split with a group of friends. You can't go wrong with any of the tacos on the menu. Try the Cabritos and pay with Cover!
  • Finally veered away from the amazing Carne Asada Burrito and tried the Huevos Rancheros for brunch. Make sure to avoid waiting for the check and pay with Cover
  • Sit at the guacamole bar if you can. Also the lunch pre-fixe is one of the best deals in town. Don't forget to pay with Cover!
  • Open faced steak quesadilla is a must! Pay with Cover and you won't complain about the incredibly slow waitstaff.
  • Must have side= Mexican street corn. For entree the skirt steak is so tender and chicken tacos are very flavorful
  • Lobster ceviche was good - otherwise largely undeserving of the hype. Food is mediocre; service blas. Empellon is a better bet in the neighborhood.
  • First tip I've left. Truly not worth it. Go elsewhere.
  • Try the open faced quesadilla with steak. Amazing!
  • I'll dream about this michelada!!
  • Shockingly bad service. Food is decently tasty but overpriced.
  • Great place for any celebration that calls for a tequila shot, or two, or three. You might also want to order guacamole and short-rib empanadas.
  • Chef is really cute!!
  • Mango chile cocktail w/mezcal instead of tequila!
  • Fish tacos and Mexico City corn as a side
  • Yum! Especially guac, queso fundido, chopped salad, and shrimp tacos. Ok everything I ate
