    I have been working at Acapulco/EL Torito Restaurants part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tips are the only reason i have stayed for so long.

    Cons

    Hours suck due to lack of business. The lack of business then affects just about everything else in a negative fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way of bringing in business; instead of raising prices try lowering them.

    Wish very bad things for this company-New C's only care about the profit goal

    Former Employee - General Manager

    I worked at Acapulco/EL Torito Restaurants full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Before the new C's the work was hard but fair and steady

    Cons

    New C's are firing anyone w/a salary and closing everything they can so they can get the 25mil profit for their bonus and leave after their 2 yrs and in the meantime those of us let go will most likely lose their homes after being a valued employee for 20 + years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice only a coment to the owners/board members; You made a mistake w/these two idiots that are closing everything and letting go of people that have been with the company sense of conception.

    Pros

    Mom and pop mentality of "fix it yourself" gives you more knowledge about the business and how to save money on budget.

    Cons

    Senior Management- regional managers that speak little english. They know most of their managers have worked their way up the company from bussers and dishwashers so they treat them like they have no other management opportunities available and work them to death.

    Pros

    New emphasis on the quality of the guest experieice; better service without singular focus on cost cutting; lots of menu changes and better food. Stable and loyal employees.

    Cons

    New ownership and revolving door at the top of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take a step back by returning to cost cutting. Stay the course on improviements in the guest experience.

    I worked at Acapulco/EL Torito Restaurants

    Pros

    Good product, atmosphere, and concept. Guests always in a great mood. Mariachi bands, DJ
    's, and dancing. What about that is not to love.

    Cons

    Not much. Loved everything about it, but some more training work shops to keep the team strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to step it up. The reason it is going down in flames.
