Lincoln Park is full of casual spots that are affordable enough for college students, and Toro falls into this category - helped along by the fact that it’s BYOB. Because of its high quality sushi, small space, and no-reservations policy, this place is always crowded. Increase your chances of getting a table by coming with just one other person, not a group. But you should still expect a wait (and to be surrounded by college students).
