El Toro Taco

1 Krome Ave. Homestead, FL 33030 | Homestead/Florida City | 305-245-8182

Location Description:

The only thing better than the bean dip - a large bowl of equal parts refried beans and melted Mexican white cheese zinged up with a mild blend of spices ($5.62 with unlimited baskets of tortilla chips) - is this authentic, family-owned restaurant's attitude toward BYOB. Walk in with a six-pack of Corona and the waitstaff promptly places an ice bucket on your table. They'll even provide the limes - which go wonderfully with sizzling fajitas accompanied by grilled steak, onion, and pepper aplenty - or burritos so swollen with goodness they look like they're about to bust at the seams. And although the menu at this nondescript Homestead favorite is flavorful, it's not overly spicy. So if you're a lover of all things hot 'n' spicy, try the chile relleno: a large poblano pepper stuffed with your choice of chicken, beef, or cheese; dipped in egg batter; and smothered with salsa and melted cheese ($9.25).
