My son and I stopped in for a quick dinner and cold beer in the middle of our long road trip. We were tired and hungry, looking for a satisfying meal to end the day- nothing fancy, but still needing to be clean, tasty, and...More

Great food and service. A bit hard to find, as not on the main street; but nearby. We are staying at the Ponderosa RV Resort and luckily they had an ad in the brochure! Enjoyed their lunch specials! Yummy!

Never a disappointment! I have eaten here many, many times and will continue coming back. The food is authentic, well-prepared, and delicious. The plates are huge--two average people could share a meal and both come away satisfied. Diners are served a basket of chips with...More

El Rodeo is family owned and run. This is our go to when we want to eat out in Cheney. Delicious and authentic food and a friendly attentive waitstaff. Highly recommend if you love Mexican food at a good price.

The food here was VERY good with a huge traditional menu. I think I communicated fairly well with our server when I said "no trego" (no wheat) although there may have been some in the enchilada sauce. Really busy place, and friendly folks.

We consider ourselves experts in this area (for gringos) and loved this place. Great service, very generous portions and a top notch margarita. The salsa was perfect, and for me the true tell of any Mexican place- great beans. We split a plate and it...More
