El Caballito Tequila y Tacos – About

Welcome to El Caballito

Tequila y Tacos

Directly translated El Caballito means “the little horse”. Legend has it that when a great Mexican revolutionary requested a shot of tequila as his last right before execution, the tequila was poured into his personal shot glass, and as he lifted the glass to his lips a tiny golden horse could be seen on the bottom. To this day, the long narrow shot glass used to drink tequila is known as a “Caballito”.

Located a short walk from Roy Thomson Hall, the Princess of Wales Theatre and the Toronto International Film Festival, El Caballito serves street-style Mexican cuisine along with the most robust selection of tequilas and margaritas in downtown Toronto. Perfect for group events and private dining. Try Toronto’s Best Mexican restaurant tonight!
