We are new in town in Asheville and went to TripAdvisor looking for a highly rated Mexican restaurant there. This one was closest to where we were staying so we gave it a shot. We are so glad that we did! We ended up coming...More

New to the area so thought that I would try out a new restaurant. Saw that El Charro had a lunch buffet so stopped in and tried it. I should have kept right on going. It had the most dried out, not fresh, food I...More

Very fresh buffet with an excellent choice of options! I love making a taco salad. Today there was baby shrimp and fish! I ate too much but just couldn't help myself. They keep it replenished and the wait staff are attentive and friendly. You can...More

I had the buffet on Sunday for lunch. There was something for everyone, even someone who doesn't like Mexican food and could have fried chicken. The staff was attentive, refiling beverages and removing used plates. They have traditional food you can make on the buffet...More

Meh. Really ordinary Mexican food. VERY oily. The guacamole was weird. No tomatoes, tiny portion, very salty and SPICY. Never had guacamole with heat before. 😳Portions were generous. Server was super nice. Inside was cold. Not cozy. We won't be back.

You can smell this place as soon as you get out of your car. We were seated right away. They had a small buffet but we decided on the fajitas for two. You get a generous portion of fajita but there are more vegetables than...More

I have lived in Asheville on and off for 50 years and I had never eaten here. Why? Because the outside is so unremarkable and in a strip mall. It just doesn't seem like a place that I would like to go. HOWEVER, a friend...More
