The new El Toro Mexican Bar & Grill restaurant in south Centerville will host a ribbon-cutting and grand opening this Friday, Jan. 18, with giveaways and other special activities.
The event will kick off with a ribbon-cutting with Centerville city officials at 5 p.m. Friday, and will continue until 9 p.m. with a live radio broadcast, margarita samples for those over 21, and other giveaways, according to the El Toro Facebook events page. A portion of the sales will be donated to the Pink Ribbon Girls.
The new restaurant, which first started serving customers three weeks ago, is located in a 4,627-square-foot space at 894-C S. Main St., the previous Buffalo Wings & Rings space in the Centerville Square Shopping Center at Ohio 48 and Spring Valley Pike.
This is the 13th restaurant for the family-owned, Dayton-based Mexican restaurant chain, which is also renovating the former TGI Fridays restaurant at 2022 Miamisburg-Centerville Road in the South Towne Center to open a restaurant there.
Enrique Alvarez, district manager for El Toro, said plans call for shutting down the existing El Toro restaurant at 2335 Miamisburg-Centerville Road when the new restaurant opens in the former TGI Fridays.
