We really wanted to love this place, chosen specifically to celebrate cinco de mayo and they were hopping No real wait but host was harried and kind of threw the salsa in a bowl from the tabletop creamer pot. The chips were ... different. They’re...More

This restaurant changed completely when it changed hands. The great cook and wait staff were all replaced. It became a typical impersonal restaurant with no concern for customer satisfaction. Mediocre food and higher prices with a "if you don't like it go somewhere else attitude"...More

Mexican food isn't great unless the salsa is great! Mild, medium, and hot salsas made fresh. Attentive servers. Nice menu selection.

I'm by no means an expert on Mexican food, it's difficult to be one when you live in London. I decide to pop into El Charro this evening as it's close to, but not on, Whiskey Row. I was not disappointed with my choice as...More
