We received a warm welcome. The food was excellent and came very quickly. I had a pomegranate margarita, enchiladas with rice and refried beans, and the fried ice cream.

Found this gem. Real Mexican food, great service, and plenty to eat. Had the combination platter and had to take the leftovers home. The homemade salsa was wonderful, fresh, and flavorful. We will definitely go back there!

So refreshing to eat authentic Mexican. Service was great. Atmosphere was just right...not too loud and not too quiet. Prices were reasonable for the amount of food.

Nice menu. Good food. Attentive staff I go here often with family. Dinners are great. Dollar taco Monday is fun. Can only get hard tacos but they are good. Small restaurant located in a strip mall. Nice atmosphere.

My partner and I love to stop at El Charro after an afternoon of shopping. He loves the Blue Moon on tap and we always enjoy the delicious dinners. I like to try something new each time! Great service and wonderful food!

The food and service is quite good. They have an appetizer of chorizo sausage in cheese that is usually quite a good dip. The staff is attentive and friendly. You might have to wait a bit for a table and there is a bar to...More
