El Toro Mexican Restaurant Shrimp and Mango Salad

El Toro Mexican Restaurant in Clute, Texas

Is it even a real family vacation in Texas without some good Tex-Mex? El Toro Mexican Restaurant, which has several locations in Texas, delivered just that!

The Food

Travel Tip #29: Cup Over Bowl

If you’re a tortillas soup lover like me, let me help you out. Order the cup, the bowl is massive and looks like it could feed two to three people. Our server was not very helpful when it came to describing the portion sizes and my mom ordered a bowl and was mistakenly (blessing in disguise) delivered a cup. The table behind us was brought out a bowl and it was then we knew the cup was the way to go! You can see more of their menu options here.

If you’re all about seafood when you’re dining near the sea, try the Shrimp and Mango Salad for both a seafood and Tex-Mex salad! Beautiful and tasty!

Good for Large Parties?

Yes! Of the restaurants we tried in the Surfside Beach area, El Toro offered the largest seating capacity and would be perfect for large parties. Clute has a few more other bigger restaurants if you’re needing to accommodate a large party, but don’t rule out Galveston! Click here to see a short list of restaurant options in Galveston that can serve large groups. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it give you a good jumping off point!
