El Toro

San Francisco's Mission District is known for its delicious Mexican restaurants, and one of those that definitely ranks up there near the top is El Toro. With its fresh ingredients, unbelievable portion sizes and low prices, some even claim it is the best taqueria in the whole city!

All of our dishes are made to order. From our burritos that are brimming with all the classic fixins to our hot quesadillas that ooze with melted cheese, we guarantee everything is made without preservatives, MSG or lard to provide a healthier dining experience for our patrons. There is no shortage of protein options here with chicken, meat, pork, tofu, and even seafood! Everyone who enters through the front door will find a diverse menu that meets their dining standards, fulfills their hunger and satisfies any craving.

My best friend and I eat dinner here every Friday after we get off work. I must say we have been going for a year and still have not tried everything on the menu. Everything is so good, but my favorite dish is hands down the garlic prawns dinner. I could eat that every day! So delicious. -- Katie H.


El Toro has amazing food, but that is not even the thing I like most about the restaurant. Unlike some places in the Mission, El Toro is always clean. You can tell the staff takes great pride in the presentation of both the restaurant and the food. I am a fan for life! -- Tom G.


I do not live anywhere near El Toro, but whenever I am dying for a fish taco, I will ride across town just to get one. Their tacos are amazing, inexpensive and they always taste so fresh. I had never heard of El Toro until a few months ago, and I am sorry I did not find it sooner. -- Mel A.
