You are not going to believe this place. Remember the Flintstones when Barney and Fred would order Brontosaurus burgers. Well, the El Toro is Jurassic Park on a plate. The burger is so massive that there’s thought to posting odds at the IP whether it can be eaten in one sitting. I started the El Toro on Tuesday and finished it Thursday. If you like living large, Tequila Joe’s is nirvana. Flavor is not sacrificed by the enormous size. The waffle fries are a nice touch not often seen on the burger circuit. Tequila Joe’s is being converted into a sidewalk bar and bistro. That means plenty of El Toros to blend in with live DJs, top 40 dance and hip-hop. Of course, the El Toro is but one of numerous enlarged items on the menu, including 100-oz. drinks of your choice. There’s even a world-class chef serving these feasts. How could you rate TJ’s anything but the best!
