Bienvenido! (Welcome!)

When it comes to Southwest Mexican cuisine, there is only one place in Sarasota that creates a one-of-a-kind dining experience that keeps visitors and locals coming back for more. Family owned and operated, El Toro Bravo combines fresh, flavorful food along with honest prices and outstanding service.

Whether you’re in the mood for specialty menu items like Chile Colorado and Tampiqueno Steak or the classics like fajitas, enchiladas, burritos and tacos done to perfection, El Toro Bravo is the rare, hidden gem that you must experience to truly appreciate. Ruben Caban, owner and chef, travels to the markets himself to hand pick the freshest produce. He uses no lard or vinegar – only olive oil and canola oil for the healthiest, best tasting food in Sarasota.

Complement your meal with a delicious wine margarita, a glass of sangria or a variety of other delightful drinks sure to please. Mouthwatering food, excellent prices and a warm, friendly environment – they all add up to Love at First Bite.

And that’s no Toro!
