   Parking

Ample free parking for El Toreador customers may be found in two parking lots directly behind the restaurant.  These lots are entered from Cleveland Avenue just prior to (west of) Leary Way (see diagram below).  Since Redmond Way and Cleveland Avenue are both one-way streets, if you pass by the front of the restaurant it is usually best to circle around the block, turning left on Redmond Way, left on Brown St., and left on Cleveland Ave.  Then stay in the left lane and you will be able to enter either driveway.
