So when my Sorority Sister suggested El Torrito's I was like "Meh."
El Torrito's, Chevy's, Applebees...they are all the same type of chain restaurant to me.
I am not going to pretend that this was not your typical chain restaurant experience, but it did have its perks!!
First of all the Drinks were Amazing, their $3 Happy Hour Margarita is nice and strong and tasty-I had two!!...get it on the rocks!!...I ordered mine blended at first and I thought that I was drinking a pile of rock salt...when they brought back the margarita on the rocks it was heaven in a glass.
I had a quesadilla and on a scale of 1-10 it was a nice 7!!...and it went quite well with the Salsa!! I would have that again!
The cherry on top however was the Fried Ice Cream!! While a whopping 1300 calories(estimated), it was decadent and I could not finish the whole dessert because it was so sweet! Yum Factor here was a 12!!!
The service in the Bar was awesome, the service at our table was mediocre at best >>I am being kind.
But the atmosphere was so enjoyable that we sat at our table for hours without being harassed or asked to leave.
Overall I this would not be a regular restaurant of choice because the food is "just okay."
But if I want to have a well priced happy hour with my girls and grab a bite, this is just the place!!
