From the outside El Rodeo doesn't look like much ... and the fact that it's attached to a hotel doesn't help it. But don't let that stop you! The food is great! I had tacos for lunch & they were fantastic. Inside is about what you would expect, but it's comfortable and the service is fine.

Huge plates! You will not be hungry, you could easily enjoy another full meal with the leftovers! Everything we tried was delicious and very authentic. Some of the most delicious food we've tried has been at a "hole in the wall" type place and this is definitely one of those places. But don't be deceived by the restaurants appearance, you... More

Food is very good and service is super fast. You start off with fresh chips, salsa and bean dip. Great spot for a excellent Mexican lunch in Nampa.

I try this dish "Camarones mojo de ajo at just about every Mexican restaurant I visit. If it doesn't stand up to El Rodeo, I usually don't go back to try anything else. I know that's pretty biased on just one dish, but this is one garlic shrimp dish that so many other restaurants fail at and when I look... More

I had not eaten at El Rodeo for several years and was coaxed in to trying it again. I was pleasantly surprised. Very generous portions and very inexpensive.

I had never eaten here before. Went with a group from work. The portions were hearty. The flavor was full. Everyone really enjoyed the meal. And the price can't be beat! I recommend it for sure

The menu includes all the standard Mexican food choices, and they are all prepared well. As is usual at Mexican restaurants, don't order any form of steak unless you like it well done. The seating is typical of most diners with booths along the wall and a few tables in the middle. It is a relatively quiet place and they... More

I enjoy this place it has a few more authentic options than most local places. Prices are good, service is good, place is a bit stale, I mean outdated feeling.
