I ate at El Rodeo for years, moved away, and when I came back to visit, I ate there for lunch. They gave the 4 of us a tiny basket of chips and my burrito was 1 flour tortilla rolled up with beef and cheese!...More

Much better value than nearby Mexican restaurants in the Valley View Mall area. Serves takeout quickly and has sincerely friendly servers. Options include what you would expect for American-Mexican food: tacos, quesadillas, huevos rancheros, enchiladas, etc. Able to accommodate families and large parties. Not the...More

Much better value than other nearby Mexican restaurants including Rodeo Grande in Valley View Mall area. Mole sauce is a nice treat--this is comfort food. Friendly service from interested servers--a loud and broad (and clearly accidental) salsa spill complicated dinner. Comfortable but not upscale atmosphere....More

The restaurant has a very attractive decor. The menu was not particularly adventurous, but everything was well prepared and tasty, and the service was quite good.

Comfortable, casual Mexican restaurant with a neighborhood feel. Inexpensive food served quickly. Lots of "American Mexican" options with heavy mole sauce. Complimentary chips served with meal. Some limited outdoor seating with not-so-spectacular view. Parking best along sides of building.

I recently had lunch at this location, which is the original El Rodeo in Roanoke. The food and service were fine but nothing special. I think the portions are larger at the other locations. Prices are very reasonable.

They have a huge menu with lunch specials. The speedy Gonzales is my favorite for a quick, filling meal.

Nothing to write home about food or service-wise. Our waiter brought the wrong food to our table twice. We asked for more salsa, never got it. No refills offered as we ate. This is also the same location that didn't hold the cheese sauce like...More
