The food scene in Floyd is very good so it was with some expectations that we entered El Charo. In a word, NO. You can make better and more flavorable Mexican food in your own kitchen. Bland food. The restaurant is very clean and the staff is ok but there are some excellent restaurants in Floyd and this is NOT... More

This was the only restaurant open Monday night - so Mexican it was. The food was fine, if a bit pedestrian. Both the chips and the salsa seemed to be from a food service provider - not house made. The service was good and the restaurant was clean. There is a deck if the weather is good.

The food was served hot and fast and was about the same as other Mexican restaurants. The chips weren't to my liking as they were kind of thick and hard and I prefer chips that are light and crispy. To each their own I suppose. The salsa was good and easily spiced up with hot sauces on the table. The... More

Quality and quantity of food was great, service was excellent and the price was appropriate for the meal we received. We will visit again and recommend others do so.

This restaurant started off great but recently portions have been small and prices have gone up. I ordered a Shrimp and Rice for pick up and had a tiny mound in the container. Very disappointed.

El Charro is an authentic Mexican restaurant with an extensive menu. The food is good and plentiful. Service is quick and courteous. Menu items are seasoned in such a way that there should be something to please every palette. Dining is casual and family friendly, with abundant parking in the rear.

The last two times we visited Floyd, VA, we dined at El Charro. Both times, we were very pleased with the service and quality/quantity of our dinners. Very reasonably priced, as well. A good choice.
