El Torito is a pioneer in Mexican casual dining in California with a focus on fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine served with warm and genuine hospitality. Founded in 1954, El Torito introduced traditional Mexican dishes, gracious hospitality and a belief that “mi casa es su casa.” Fifty years later, El Torito maintains the same commitment to authenticity, innovation and treating each guest as if they were dining in their own homes. Executive Chef “Pepe” Lopez’s commitment to freshness and quality is reflected in his traditional and unique cuisine, including authentic flavors and recipes of his regional Chef’s specials.
An upscale counterpart to El Torito, El Torito Grill is dedicated to bringing a sensory experience that is a fusion of the contemporary “natural foods" of Mexico in a sophisticated environment. An exhibition kitchen, tortilla camal and signature mesquite grilling highlights El Torito Grill’s commitment to freshness, quality and innovation associated with upscale dining. Dedicated to culinary and service excellence, El Torito Grill wood fired mesquite grills impart a signature sweet smoky flavor to meats, poultry, fish and vegetables while service is seamless. This commitment carries over to the bar where our striking tequila display provides a variety of options to the most discriminating tequila connoisseur. Borrowing Indian and Mexican cultures, we have our special brand of cuisine and carefully shaped it to today’s contemporary tastes.
