I returned to El Charrito because the food was good and reasonable. Both times I was impressed with the level of service. The waiter had a great attitude, the food was very good and the prices were very affordable.

We're going with four. The food was good, not the best Mexican we've had but tasty nonetheless. Staff was very friendly. The food was a little slow, especially given that it 7:30 and few tables were occupied.
