Went here when were in town for a soccer tournament and were craving margaritas and Mexican. The food was very good, extremely good value and large portions. I would have given it 4 stars but the margaritas were a HUGE disappointment. We ordered the huge size and theres was enough tequila to give it a tequila taste, but they really... More

I have tried a lot of Mexican restaurants in the city but El Charro remains my favorite. Food is abundant(especially the free chips and salsa), flavorful, and filling. Lunch specials are a... More

This restaurant was located adjacent to my hotel and was recommended my the hotel staff. I was immediately greeted and seated and almost immediately my waitress appeared to take my drink order. Once I ordered, my food was prepared and delivered to my table very quickly. The food seemed to be freshly prepared and served hot. I enjoyed my meal... More

I had the chori-pollo and it was delicious. Grilled chorizo, chicken and cheese, with rice and beans. Perhaps it was a bit much for lunch because now I need a nap! Excellent waiter, too. I'll be back.

This restaurant has friendly staff, quick service, and decent food. I have enjoyed several of the lunch combos that cost below $8, which are more than worth it. The enchiladas and tacos are great.

My wife and I eat here every 3 weeks or so. Their white chip dip is fantastic. I always have some sort of steak meal.

Wonderful margaritas, a chicken pork beef and chorizo mixture in a 10 pound lava rock bowl, and great chips. What else could you ask for after a road day? Right next door to the Sleep Inn made it easy to relax. If I'm back in the area I'll be eating here again.

This restaurant is across the street from our hotel that we're staying in right of 95 on the way down to Florida. Nice surprise. Very reasonable. Great margaritas, generous portions, well-seasoned fajitas and carne asada. And great service.
