In the early 1960s, Octaviano Magana left his home country of Mexico and immigrated to the U.S. Later, his wife Maria followed and they began raising a family and working the fields of California farms. The Magana family grew with three sons and a daughter and now nine grandchildren, and all the time they understood the best quality food comes from the freshest ingredients found locally. 

In 1996, the Maganas decided to buy a restaurant from a friend. They restored the look, added mariscos (seafood) and menudo - Maria's own recipe - to the menu. Every one of the Magana kids has worked in the restaurant over the years, so it is truly a family affair. Soon, the local community responded with high praise, voting El Toro Bronco the best Mexican restaurant for the past four years. 

El Toro Bronco serves the local community by hosting fund raisers, community events, family gatherings, and soccer team award banquets. 

We take sincere pride in our food and in our customer service, and you always know that members of the Magana family are behind every bite, every sip, and every memory at El Toro Bronco.
