Had lunch here and the service was slow and the food was surprisingly bland and poorly prepared. I was disappointed. Based on the crowded parking lot, I figured this must be "the place" for Mexican in Blanco. IT IS NOT! Never got a check. Thought maybe they realized the food was bad so we didn't have to pay for it?... More

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving this was one of the only things open. It was very quick and also inexpensive. I ordered the beef fajitas and was brought out a hot girdle style plate with tons of beef and mixed vegetables on it. It didn't have much seasoning so I layered it in pepper and rumored the juice of the salsa... More

El Charro is a favorite local spot in the small town of Blanco. It is so busy sometimes, you have to wait a short while for a table, or even a parking spot. This place is nothing fancy, but that isn't what we go for. The food is consistently good, the dining area is clean, and the appearance is tidy.... More

Don't let the appearance of this place fool you. This is a small restaurant but the food and prices are good. There aren't very many tables but as soon as one becomes available, it is taken by someone waiting. It is obvious a lot of locals eat here. They also do a brisk take out business. Iced tea is served... More

We read reviews of this place on here and google stating that it was really good and had perfect salsa. We decided to give it a try since we are what you may call, "salsa experts" (just kidding). While the salsa wasn't the best I've ever had, it was REALLY GOOD! The portions were large and the staff was friendly.... More

We visit here often, as we live in Blanco. Especially when we are very hungry - chips & salsa are served quickly and the food comes out fast. Nice selection of plates and entrees.

I think this was the only Mexican Restaurant in town and although authentic with friendly service and cheap prices, the food in general, was average. We stopped for brunch on a holiday because they were open. My companion had a mexican burrito which he said was good but a bit greasy. I chose an omelette which was only average since... More

Hacienda El Charro has the advantage of being the only Mexican food restaurant in Blanco, which is unfortunate as they could use a little competition to up their game. Don't get me wrong, I still eat there because I'm a hopeless Mexican food addict, but I've noticed the quality seems to have fallen a bit -- or perhaps just hasn't... More

Expansive menu. Great prices, and very pleasant service. AtmosWe felt that the food was just average. A little too greasy. Still a fun night out, and if we lived nearby, we'd likely give them another chance.
