“Decent Mexican food on North Wood Dr.”
Review of El Charro

El Charro
Ranked #7 of 41 Restaurants in Okmulgee
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 October 2017

Recently spent a couple nights in Okmulgee and had lunch at El Charro, a Mexican restaurant on North Wood Dr (Highway 75). Opening hours 11am to 9pm daily.

This restaurant has an extensive menu of traditional Mexican dishes, combination meals and lunch specials. During lunch, I tried the Spinach Enchiladas served with refried beans and Mexican rice ($7.25) that was rather decent. The two enchiladas were nice and the sides tasted as expected. Chips and salsa served before the meal were fine.

Dining atmosphere at El Charro is casual and family-friendly. Service was polite and the meal was served in a timely manner.

Overall, I don't know what the overall scene is like in Okmulgee but this isn't a bad place for Mexican food if you want something reasonably priced and good quality and centrally located in the middle of town.

Went at 1p on a Saturday and there was only one other group there eating. Service was good, friendly, and quick. Cheap beer.

Prices seemed a little high. I ordered 2 enchiladas with rice and beans, $7.25 before taxes. It came on a small plate and the enchiladas were very small with a small portion of rice and beans. Like you'd expect for a kids portion. My sons fajitas from the lunch menu were twice what I had and almost half the price. For 8 of us to eat it averaged $13.50 a person with tip.

Always friendly staff. Traditional Mexican food and they will make any alterations to your meal if you ask. One of our guests was on a special diet and every adaptation he asked for to the menu was happily accommodated.

It's not really Tex-Mex, it is closer to real Mexican food than so many of the chain restaurants. It is not expensive and the decor is low-key, but they serve you well. We have been going here for a couple years and really love it and the food. They make me a great margarita each time and are very welcoming. I can highly recommend the Durango Special. Weekend nights it is full of customers and the staff is happy to have the place full, the waiters really try to take care of you. If you have a complaint, please ask the owner about it, they always go out of their way to make up for it.
