UPDATE: New El Toro Mexican restaurant coming to Centerville is scheduled to open this fall

** UPDATE: This news outlet reached Enqrique Alvarez, district manager for El Toro, and he told us the Dayton-based chain has no plans of shutting down its existing Centerville-area restaurant on Ohio 725 when this new south Centerville restaurant opens, which could happen as early as November. It will employ 30 to 35 people, and will become El Toro’s 13th restaurant.


The El Toro Mexican restaurant chain that operates a dozen locations in the Dayton area has submitted plans to the city of Centerville for a new restaurant in the southern part of that community.
