Had dinner at this restaurant and was sincerely unimpressed. Anyone that considers El Rodeo good Mexican fare, needs to expand their horizons and try other options in surrounding areas/states. El Rodeo has a substantial menu with great sounding dishes, but reality is a completely different...More

We enjoy El Rodeo's Tex-Mex style of food, and we always find a slightly different combination to try. Recently I had the #1 Vegetarian: One bean burrito, one cheese enchilada and one tostada with beans and cheese. My partner had the #4 One chalupa, one...More

Not Mexican.have tried several dishes there, all bad. The "quesadilla" is bad. Picture two flour tortillas, a little graded mozzarella cheese thrown in, and chicken pieces that were boiled thrown in then heated up. Beans taste like they came from a can. Guacamole ok but...More
