Great value for the money. I went on a Monday night and they had $2.50 margaritas. You can't really taste them, but them hit you later. Along with chips and salsa refills. Good time, good service, cool location. Overall it was a good time!

This is my go-to Mexican restaurant. Torero’s offers a great value for the money, including entrees and alcohol. I always leave satisfied. My only complaint is that the refried beans could use more flavor and character.

I came here for lunch today with my coworkers. The staff was very nice. There are a ton of options on the menu and the waitress was great with helping me to figure out what I wanted. I ordered 3 soft corn tortillas with shrimp and a side of black beans and guacamole. The wad was just ok. It was warm not hot so that was disappointing. Also because we were a large group gratuity was already added to the bill. I can’t say I would return again though. Also there is a parking lot across the street. Parking there is $3 hr but they will validate for you. Otherwise there is parking in various spots on the street. This location is in Brightleaf so it is close to a few other places.

I very much enjoyed my experience here. The service was excellent and our food was served quickly. The prices are very reasonable. You will enjoy this restaurant if you love Mexican food.

Torreros is just a good down to earth type place. Food is good and is very reasonably priced. They get the food out very quickly as well. They are very, very attentive on the service side. While it is far from an upscale place, quite a few upscale restaurants are less attentive and aware of customer needs. And, everyone seems genuinely pleasant and friendly. Not hard to see how they have survived in this location over the 23 years I have lived in Durham. No frills place but just good food at great prices that has service down.

The food was everything I wanted and expected - delicious. Service was reasonably quick and decor had the bright fun Hispanic flare.

Well my friends order here. They're never disappointed, so I joined in. I have been ordering take-out for months here. It's a lot of food and taste great. Remember "Mikey likes it", well I'm a giant "Mikey" that really likes it. Unable to eat in, so I order to go for work. Very good. This photo is from five days ago.

One of the only authentic Mexican restaurants in Durham. The staff was friendly, but harried. They made a couple of mistakes on our orders and the food took a while to come. The food is tasty, but not spicy. They do provide multiple different hot-sauces to add that have great flavor. They have an elaborate birthday celebration that lots of fun try them out for your next Durham birthday.
