Lunch :: El Torito Obsession





I recently went to El Torito four times within eight days, and almost every time, I ordered the same thing -- two margaritas and a cheese quesadilla, all for $4 each. After taking photos during the first three visits, I started to feel a little embarrassed.

Needless to say, the restaurant has been chosen for my next installment of favorite LA spots. I'd been there before, but I'd never realized how good the happy hour is! Usually, cheap prices mean cheap quality, but both the food and drinks are delish in this case.

El Torito is not to be confused with El Torito Grill, its pricier counterpart, which I used to walk to when I lived a couple blocks down the street. Their happy hour includes $5 margaritas, which ain't too shabby either... I'm a fan. :)

  8. El Torito sounds like this place I frequent called El Rincon. I usually get the cheese quesadilla and the horchata and I think that is all under $8 as well. I think I know what I should get for lunch. :)
