“Very good, inexpensive Tex-Mex”

El Charro Restaurant
Ranked #6 of 24 Restaurants in Johnson City
Cuisines: Spanish
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 December 2016

Great food, with most platters costing less than $8, and everything costing less than $10. They're using real cheese (unlike some Tex-Mex joints), and they make their own salsa and refried beans. The only complaint is that service is sometimes slow -- we had to go up front to get menus.

Note that payment is made at the counter -- the bill is not brought to the table.

Went out to dinner with friends while staying in Johnson City. Service was terrible. Asked for menus on several occasions- even walked around to try and find them. Begged wait staff to take our order. On a positive note - the food was good. Won't be back.

When we registered at the Roadrunner RV Park (across from El Charro) the owner told us of this great little Mexican restaurant. We gave it a try.

This is Mexican fare - not TEX-MEX - and is very inexpensive! We thought that it would be passable! But when our orders arrived they were large and scrumptious, to say the least!

Further , the service was great! None of the servers could do enough for us!

Despite their not having a liquor license this was a wonderful experience of truly Mexican food!!!

Enjoyed the Al Captain, pork with charro flavoring, Rice, Beans, Salad. This meal was recommended by the cook and he nailed it.
