Enjoyed our dinner, margaritas, and evening here. I had a chicken dish that was excellent, husband had enchiladas and friends had taco salad. Everything was excellent, plus good service.

This is a gringo restaurant. I am a gringo but like authentic Mexican. We have eaten here twice and both times the food was constantly ok. The rice is tasteless. The black beans were ok. The service in good and people are friendly. The drinks were ok, just ok. There are other choices.

I have some favorite Mexican restaurants and there seems to be an opinion that Cazador is the best in town, but Los Charros has got to be near the top. Reasonable prices and always attentive and super friendly staff. This was my first visit in awhile but has been pretty consistent over the years. Chips and Salsa were good and... More

We have never had a bad meal here. Everything that we have had off the menu is filled with flavor and generous portions. The Texas dip is food as an appetizer or a meal. The Happy Burritos melt in your mouth, as does the Super Burrito. The rice is flavorful. The margaritas are to DIE for. This is often our... More

Your first impression when you walk into a new place is always important. The woman who greeted me, didn't speak, just grabbed a menu and took me to a table. Throwing the menu on the table. Ok.....
