When you drive by a Mexican restaurant when it's 115 degrees outside and the parking lot is full, well you stop. Great food, great taste, good prices. Probably the best Mexican restaurant in Yuma.

El Charro offers what may be Yuma's best Mexican food. The rellenos, tacos and other Mexican standards were all prepared well and tasted great. Friendly, popular place; highly recommended.
