By far the best Mexican fare in the area. Service is always good, and if you are eating alone I recommend sitting at the bar. I'm not even sure that people realize they HAVE a bar.

El Charro has been in Covington a long time. It is an excellent place to meet up for lunch or dinner with friends or family. Just remember it is not authentic Mexican but "Tex-Mex". Great margarita's!!!

Service is usually top notch, and there is never any surprises with the food. It is very popular with all the locals. The food is not how I prefer mexican to be prepared but it appeals the the demographic in the area.

20 years ago in Atlanta on Ponce De Leon was a Mexican restaurant called Peppi's. This place had the same flavor meat that I hadn't tasted in years. The chips were good, the burrito was fantastic, the service was very good. We asked about how they cooked their meat and they shared with us how they do it. Can't wait... More
