I don’t know about you but I am so sick of cooking. Sometimes I just want a nice Mexican dinner and drive through will not do. Let’s talk tacos and Margaritas, ole! Specifically El Torito’s Family Fiesta Packs featuring all the fixings for a terrific taco in the comfort of your own home.
Available for pick up or delivery, El Torito’s Family Fiesta Packs includes your choice of protein (chicken, steak or carnitas), your choice of tortillas (corn or flour) rice and either refried or de la olla beans. Don’t worry you’ll also get your chips and a variety of salsas, plus sour cream and pico de gallo. What else could you need? A margarita or three? You can get that too, with pitchers or single margaritas, fruity or not. And it’s all available for delivery or pick up.
My taco package came with tender, grilled, white meat chicken. It was nicely seasoned and had a wonderful smokey flavor. I took a warm tortilla and filled it with chicken, lettuce, cheese, pico de gallo, and a dash of cheese. A pool of beans and a scattering of rice completed my meal. Very fresh, super yummy, almost like going to a restaurant again.
There’s plenty of food to feed a family of four to six. If tacos aren’t your bag, El Torito also offers Fiesta Carnitas, Fiesta Fajitas and Fiesta Combos. These combos come with all the fixins for a full meal or meals in my case.
The packages are available for free delivery on orders over $20.00 or if you look at a curbside pickup as an outing (I do!) you can get $10.00 off orders of $35.00 or more. It’s really easy to arrange pickup, just visit www.eltorito.com and place your order at the Pasadena location or call them at (626) 351-8995 and place your pickup order. When you arrive at the restaurant there is parking reserved for curbside pickup and a number to call. Call it, let them know you are there, and a friendly staff will deliver your order hot and fresh and ready to eat. But take it home first, it will be more comfortable that way. And oh yeah, don’t forget the Margaritas!
El Torito is located in Hastings Ranch at 3333 Foothill Blvd., Pasadena. To place your order or for more information call (626) 351-8995 or visit www.eltorito.com.
