This was our first visit to this restaurant. It's very small so the wait to get a table was not very fast but we met another couple while waiting for a table and so we all four sat together to save tables for others waiting. We just ordered an appetizer to share since that is all we went in there... More

We've been meaning to try this place for awhile. Their salsa here is very good. I had a couple of tacos that unfortunately were served in bland grocery store style hard shells. The ground beef taco was the better than the the shredded beef version. My wife had a Mexican style rice soup, that also was underwhelming. The soup arrived... More

El Charro has something for Mexican food lovers as well as those who just want a burger and a beer. The tortilla soup is a meal in itself. Generous portions, reasonable prices, friendly service, it makes you feel like a home away from home and you don't have to do the dishes!

Excellent food. Generous portions. Very good variety on the menu. Served very hot. Takes a little time to get your order but well worth the wait. I had a chimichanga . Such a huge portion I couldn't finish it.

In an area where Mexican restaurants and foods are readily available EC, one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in town, remains reliable in terms of fresh good food and a good value. There is a full bar. The recently redone interior is clean and attractive especially since the original brick interior wall was saved along with the old advertisement painted... More

You gotta try theirs. It's done right, with wine, spirits, and fruit concoctions. It was their Friday night drink special; 5 bucks/glass. I've sipped many a glass in Spain and Portugal, and El Charro's is equally tasty. While you're there, try their signature rellenos. A spin off of the traditional Pueblan style, the El Charro version uses Anaheim chiles and... More

I was really excited to eat here because a few years back I ate here with my husband and it was really good. The sad news is, today I ate here and I was terribly disappointed. Where to start? The chips were old, the plate was scorching hot, so much so it cooked my lettuce and tomatoes, the cheese enchilada... More

It was packed on Labor Day! Luckily we got a seat at the bar for a bite and a beer. Really enjoyed the salsa, but the chips were so-so. Great bartenders and great company. Would I be back? Solid maybe.

We were told that this was a very good Mexican Restaurant. We were disappointed in both the food and Service

We had an enjoyable lunch at El Charro and a spectacular waiter. I had the fry bread, which was serviceable. One companion described his chimichanga as outstanding. Others in our party were also pleased.
