El Torito Taqueria in Greensboro, North Carolina – Restaurant Review

El Torito Taqueria in Greensboro, North Carolina – Restaurant Review

El Torito Taqueria has 4 locations in Greensboro, North Carolina.

  • The food that I have tried from El Torito Taqueria has tasted really good.
  • Unfortunately, there is not always consistency across the four El Torito Taqueria locations.
  • Once, from El Torito Taqueria, our family purchased the most delicious sweet plaintains drizzled with sweetened condensed milk as a sauce.
  • When we wanted to buy that dish on a subsequent occasion but from another one of the El Torito Taqueria locations (I don’t recall which one), the plantains did not taste nearly as good and they were not sweet plantains. We were a bit disappointed.

At just one of the El Torito Taqueria locations, we were able to purchase two items that have definitely become my favorite items to purchase from El Torito Taqueria. They are a strawberries and cream dessert and a mango icee dessert. The strawberries slices with cream are served in a large transparent plastic cup and topped with coconut shavings and raisins. The strawberries and cream consistently tastes so fresh and delicious every time I order it which is a total of about 5 times so far since discovering El Torito Taqueria.

The strawberries and cream dish is currently served at a cost of $5.50. The mango icee is a beverage that I have only purchased once so far from El Torito Taqueria. I purchased it recently. The mango icee is very good and creatively presented by El Torito Taqueria. Ice cold and refreshing, it is blended smooth and contains mango chunks as a topping. The straw is wrapped in tamarind and you can nibble the tamarind off of the straw. It is really a very refreshing and creatively made beverage. I enjoyed it a lot and would purchase it in the future just as I would purchase the strawberries and cream that I really love. The mango icee is also currently sold by El Torito Taqueria, at a cost of $5.50.

So now that I have made it clear that the strawberries and cream dessert and the mango icee have been my very favorite things to purchase from El Torito Taqueria, I would also like to make mention of the other food items that I have purchased from El Torito Taqueria and thought were very good. The steak burrito is an item that my family has purchased from El Torito Taqueria several times now. It is generously filled with ingredients and very tasty. On some occasions, it had refried beans in it and on other occasions that refried beans ingredient was replaced with white rice. Generally, the steak burrito was received filled with either refried beans or white rice, steak pieces, lettuce, tomato, and cheese. There are several types of burritios offered by El Torito Taqueria but among the burritos, we have always bought only the steak burrito, so far. The steak burrito is currently sold by El Torito Taqueria at a cost of $6.00.

Other items that we have gotten from El Torito Taqueria include the steak gordita which is also generously filled with ingredients and is a very good buy at a cost of $4.50. We have bought the steak gordita several times so far, as well. On just one occasion, we purchased the steak sope.

In summary, the items that we have tried from El Torito Taqueria so far are:

  • Plantains
  • Strawberries and cream
  • Mango icee
  • Steak burrito
  • Steak gordita
  • Steak sope

So far, ordering food items from El Torito Taqueria has generally been a very pleasant experience. The food is reasonably priced and enjoyable.

Mango icee


Here is an update. In a most recent food order, we purchased some delicious cream filled churros.

  • The presentation is very good.
  • The churros are wrapped in red and white paper.
  • They are served very warm with good tasting cream.
  • These are great quality churros and at a cost of just $1.50 each, they are a good buy. Just another thing that we really enjoy a lot from this restaurant.

Churros are a popular dessert at Mexican restaurants
