Hard to know which is better, the great food or the wonderful service. We were waited on quickly with a friendly waiter. All the food came quickly and well prepared. The atmosphere is great. I will be returning.

This is a popular restaurant. You can count on good food and good service. Prices are small town bargains. Good lunch specials. Located on Main Street Safford in historic building.

Not a bad meal, but not the best. Busy, slow customer service, and middling salsa. Very strange not having any mood music, and having ads for Christmas meals at the end of January.

Best tasting Mexican food around; affordably priced and their servers are always so upbeat! We dine here frequently and will continue going back.

In looking over what Trip Advisor and the website of El Charro, no. The website has a greater selection, but I don't believe it is complete. I gives you a good guide to the variety of great food. Come to Safford and have a... More
