It is what it is. The floor was dirty. Two waitresses were working their butts off. My order took forever. I ordered a jalisco dinner. A Chile relleno, burrito, tamale, and an enchilada. At almost 40 minutes it finally arrived. It was quite tasty. It was also inexpensive (less than ten bucks). So if you can overlook the dirty floor,... More

The customer service here is horrible. We waited an hour for 2 meals and never got refilled on chips/salsa. When the food came, it was beef instead of chicken.

Might as well go to Wal-Mart & buy a frozen dinner. That's what this stuff tastes like. El Charro was quite good when they first opened. Quality went way down many years ago & has still not recovered.

First of all, my favorite thing in a Mex restaurant is salsa. This place don't have salsa. They bring out some kind of scorching hot sauce that you Can Not eat like salsa. You also get a bowl of yellow cheese dip that is pasty with no flavor. I ordered chicken on rice with shredded cheese, Nothing else. It was... More

The salsa is not. It hot sauce that is more like chemical. The food isn't very good and way overpriced. They charge for EVERYTHING! Greed will run this place out of business.
