When I think of a fun environment to celebrate something I think Mexican! There's something naturally festive about a good Mexican restaurant! It's just FUN! The food, the margaritas, the colors, the charm and the pinatas! I just love it all! So when my Honey and I want to just kick back and relax we quite often think El Rodeo!... More

Authentic Mexican cuisine. 20 years and counting and never had a bad meal. Beef tip burrito,. Enchiladas. Margaritas. Tres tacos among favorites. Awesome hot sauce but have to ask for it. Salsa perfect most nights. Varies in flavor and intensity but usually the best.

Liked the vegetarian selections. Many to choose from. Margaritas were good even if a bit uninspiring. We ordered guacamole for the group and even though it was fresh it was crazy hot and inedible to even the hot food fans at our table. The waitress had them remake it for us and it was quite delicious the second time around.

Coconut Margarita special - pass on it! Artificial flavoring & bright blue in color - unappealing in looks and color. Staff apparently understand Spanish - too bad I don't speak it! "Salsa" that comes to the table with chips when you are seated is in a very shallow monkey bowl, and while it isn't my "cup of tea" (I like... More

Nothing special. Food was good. Margaritas were weak and tasted like they were poured from a can. Waitress forgot an item and didn't check back for drink refills.

I ordered the tacos del Mar which were excellent! There were three tacos, one had grilled shrimp, one had battered fish and one grilled shrimp. The only problem was they had a little cup of sauce on the side which I tasted with my finger. It didnt taste very spicy so I poured half on my meal. I don't like... More
