El Toro

(Editors, Upstate)

When a restaurant puts as much love into a basket of chips and salsa as it does every other item on its menu, you know it’s a winner. Everything in tiny, nondescript El Toro is made to order. The food is fast, fresh and affordable. You can’t go wrong with any of the lunch specials—like the Speedy Gomez—but for those with serious appetites, place an order for combination dinner No. 8: an enchilada, burrito and chile relleño.

624 Union St., Wilmington, 777-4417, www.eltorode.com


Mariachi Restaurant

For 10 years, Mariachi Restaurant has been pleasing resort visitors and locals alike with its triumvirate of Mexican, Spanish and Latin American cuisine. Try the paella de mariscos: shrimp, mussels, squid, scallops, fish and clams sautéed with vegetables and served over saffron rice. You’ll find more delicious seafood dishes on the Saturday and Sunday brunch menu.
