El Toro Mexican Restaurant Opening Soon in North Hampton


  • Ian Froeb

An alert reader let me know that El Toro Mexican Restaurant looks ready to open at 3710 South Kingshighway Boulevard.

The restaurant occupies a corner spot in the shopping plaza on the northeast corner of the Kingshighway-Chippewa Street intersection. The space was previously home to Joe Bush's Pizza & Pub, which closed three years ago. I don't believe anything opened in its place, though readers more familiar with that area, please do correct me if I'm wrong.

A sign outside the restaurant promises that its opening is "coming soon." A peek through the window reveals an interior that looks more or less ready to go.

I did find a phone number listed for El Toro Mexican Restaurant at this address listed at Yellowbook.com and left a message in the voice mailbox.
