We have tried lots of different Mexican restaurants, but this one is the best -- hands down. The food is always exceptional. Margaritas are fabulous. Service is top-notch.

Great food and drinks, I have never been disappointed. We dine here at least once every week or two, it is our go to place for Mexican food. On a busy night it is dinner and a show watching the wait staff rush around taking care of customers.

#1 problem- needs seasoning. When I think of a Mexican restaurant, I think spice and bold flavor. I've been here numerous times thinking it will change but it doesn't. Very bland- you can buy a frozen Mexican meal and it will taste the same.

We were staying nearby Rushville, decided to try out Los Charros. We were 2 adults and 2 little boys. We brought a card game to entertain the kids but the food came out so fast we didn't get to play. Salsa and warm chips, steak tacos, bean burritos, rice, beans, guacamole - all fresh and great tasting.

I had the carne asada and I was very impressed with the flavor and quality. Looking around the restaurant, all portions looked healthy and smelled wonderful. If you are going to be in the area, it's worth a visit. Wait time can be an issue but the service is fast.

My wife and I drive through Rushville on the way to visit family and finally decided to stop. Typical Mexican restaurant menu. Service was quick and the food was actually quite good. Salsa is ok, nothing special and the Margaritas were good. Get the Gold Margaritas, it's worth the price.

Los Charros is a good, basic Mexican restaurant. Food is tasty & portions are big. Adrian & Luis are great servers! You won't be disappointed eating here.
