Best service I have experienced in a long time. Everyone was friendly & extremely prompt. We were greeted & seated immediately. Server was excellent in anticipating our needs. Tacos were ok. Fajitas were awesome. We will definitely go back to try more menu items.

The food was your standard American-Mexican... burrito (great), chips and salsa (fresh chips, salsa a little too tomato saucy) carnitas (too shredded and not crispy enough) and chorizo-queso dip (very generous portion and tasty). The Negro Modelo is $3 so pretty reasonable and the special Margarita (not the house but I can't remember what they call it, with the Cuervo... More

Our favorite meal is the Burritos La Roqueta! It's cheesy, spicy and stuffed full of tender shredded pork. If you are not so hungry or want to share a bowl of soup, the chicken and rice soup is delicious, full of shredded chicken and savory broth. Chips and salsa go great with a big ol' margarita! Enjoy

We have been searching for a Mexican restaurant and this one was never suggested to us by friends..but so far this was the best Mexican we have eaten in the area! Service was good, white queso was delicious...salsa could have been a bit more spicy but still very tasty! We will definitely be frequent customers at this place!

I have visited El Rodeo several times and I have never had a bad experience. Service is quick and prices are reasonable. The Margaritas will test your limits. Plenty of other beverage choices to also choose from. I would say it is Authentic Mexican food....with American FDA regulations. I will return.

The Hispanic staff at El Rodeo are warm and receiving. Diego Rivera style wall murals create a Mexican village atmosphere. In December tradition Mexican decorations are added. There is a large variety of choices on the menu. We enjoy so many items it is always hard to select one. My husband always appreciates the opportunity to use his Spanish. A... More

As three guys from Los Angeles, we approached a Mexican restaurant in Michigan with some trepidation. What a pleasant surprise this place was! First rate enchiladas, tacos and margaritas satisfied these Southern Californians.
