My wife and I have dined here many dozens of times over ten or so years. Good food at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

We have visited several times over the years. The food is good, not spectacular. It is affordable. I would like to see a menu change in the near future.

Great meal. We shared the chicken and prawn fajitas were really nice. Would definitely go back next time I'm in town.

They offer Tex-Mex in a varied menu that reminds me of what you get in Texas. If you are looking for authentic Mexican fare you might be disappointed. But if you are looking for tasty Tex-Mex this is the place. Service is excellent and I've never been disappointed by the quality of the food. Definitely recommended.

Not a food expert. I have dined at many Mexican/Tex-Mex over the years. El Gran Rodeo is a solid B+. Nothing daring or unusual on the menu. Just very solid straight forward meals. Like the fact that they do not use the "One sauce fits all" approach to their food prep. I have experienced that shortcut in too many restaurants.... More

Sat on the back deck drinking excellent margaritas recommended by the wait staff. Despite being located off Wilmington Pike, outside eating area is quiet enough for normal conversation. Would recommend heartily.

Great atmosphere, friendly waiters and awesome margaritas! The fresh guacamole is mouth watering. We come at least three times a month.

It is never easy finding a good Mexican restaurant in the Northeast, and when you see one with good reviews you hope it will live up to the opinions. In my view it doesn't even come close. The basic items just didn't live up to typical Mexican food standards, with poorly and cheaply prepared enchiladas, and combinations that leave out... More
