Business Description

El Toro’s is not a fancy place, but a casual hole in the wall. The music that is playing throughout the day goes from old school to the new music of today. You can get down in the electric slide or the sprinkler. We are a fun environment that serves flavorful food and good music to listen to. Customers come to the restaurant to get as what they call “the El Toro’s experience”, this experience consists of greasy tacos, menudo, and a pitcher of Red beer. We serve menudo everyday so if you need a cure from a memorable night come get your fix. We are not only known for our mouthwatering tacos, but also “the best green chili”. Featured in the Westword and KDVR 20, it’s a must visit place to eat if you are living or visiting Denver. We give the spice, but also flavor that will have you craving for more.
