El Toro Bravo-(Peoria, Az) Review

Kari | Sep 20, 200608:13 PM    

They opened up right across from the Harkins, where Wet Willys was which had such a bad rep. We decided to give it a try. I really like the interior, very inviting.

We started with a cheese crisp ($3.50). It was good, not super crisp, but still very good. I had a cheese enchilada ($3.95). I liked it, but it was very creamy, infact too creamy that it was hard to taste the corn tortilla. The cheese was fully melted and hot. I prefer to taste more corn flavor. The sauce needed a little more zip to it.

Hubby had the El Toro Burro with pork ($9.95). It was large, but he asked for it caliente style, but the waitress forgot, so he was a little dissapointed, but other than that he said it was good.

We had an order of sopapillas ($3.95)Nice but not exceptional.

Doing a little research, the chef and one of the owners (?) came from AJO AL's. Seem's like they follow the same recipes. I refuse to go to Ajo Al's do to the bad health inspections.

Being around the corner for us westsiders, its a nice option with standard American Mexican food.
