Customers should be treated with respect – After a long evening of shopping for the perfect wedding dress my friend and I decided to stop by and eat at this establishment. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere here even though the food is a little on the bland side. Our waitress was courteous and our meal came quickly. When the check came I whipped out my bank card and paid the bill. The next day I went to fill my car up with gas and my card was declined. I ran home and looked at my statement. Not only did the restaurant charge me the $24.00 for my meal but they also charge me $250. I tried calling but the woman on the end of the phone didn?t understand English. I hopped in me car determined to get this all sorted out. When I walked in a man behind the counter asked if he could help me. I said I wished to speak to a manager. He pointed to another gentleman standing by the counter and said I could talk to him. I went over to the other gentleman and explained my situation. When I finished he and the other gentleman started laughing. This man wasn?t the manager but a customer and friend of the first guy I spoke to. He sated that he wanted to find out first what I was here to complain about. We were able to straighten out the money mix up but his attitude and disrespect for someone who has been a repeat customer was horrendous. If you decided to try this place either pay with cash for make sure you watch your bank statement. I will not be returning.
Average Mexican, but great staff! – To make a really long story short, my friends and I visit ethnic restaurants on a regular basis to sample different kinds of foods in various areas of the triangle. This was our September 2006 Ethnic Night. Yes, I'm behind in my reviews! :)
The staff was very good! They accomodated our group of 18 people! They never skipped a beat! Drinks refilled constantly, food came out quickly and accurately!
The food was similar to most Mexican restaurants in the area. Nothing flashy or anything to jump out at me, but over all, this is a great place to go!
Best Mexican in my opinion! – Their chips and salsa are fresh and wonderful. They have always given me good service. Their skirt steak dish is my favorite. It is tender, juicy, and deliciously grilled. Fabulous Margaritas! Reasonably priced too!
Torreros host called me a cracker – I had lunch with a friend at Torerro's Mexican restaurant on Atlantic today. While we were waiting to be seated, I told my friend that I had eaten there a few times and always had good meals there. I went on to say that it seemed like there were always a good number of Mexicans eating there, and I guess that's a good sign that the food is authentic. I think this must have offended the host, because he made a few comments while seating us about how he likes to call his white friends crackers. He said that if a white guy gets a tan, he calls him a wheat cracker. I laughed it off, but I think he was out of line. I don't see how calling somebody a Mexican is an insult. I suppose if you said that to a Puerto Rican, it might be offensive, but I think calling white people crackers is different. Oh well... The friend I was with was black and I thought of asking the host what he calls black people, but I didn't.
Excellent Mexican – I very much enjoyed my dining experience at Torero's. Quick, attentive service and excellent food. Not quite as spicy as I like Mexican, but the habanero hot sauce on the table made up the difference. MARGARITAS WERE GREAT!!!! Prices are very reasonable. A+++
Best mexican restaurant I've found in the triangle. Excellent food, service and prices.
Best Mexican resturant in Raleigh – Citysearch has their phone number wrong: its 873-9116..
This resturant offers great food at a great price. Its the best mexican resturant in town. The only bad thing about it is its small and if you sit in certain non-smoking sections, you can still smell cig. smoke from the bar and you get affected by it. Its worth it though!
