    I never thought I’d ever find myself saying this, but even TACO BELL has better tasting “Mexican food” than this place. First of all, the outside and the sign of the restaurant look promising, it gives off that real authentic Mexican food vibe. When you walk in though, absolutely opposite. I immediately felt weird being in there, the service was off putting. It was very dark in a weird way inside. The chips and salsa that were brought out were awful. Salsa was very cold, too chunky, and the tomatoes tastes old, and the salsa tasted line water. The ONLY thing that I thought remotely tasted like Mexican food was the bottle of HOT Salsa they gave us with the bowl of chips. Only thing that was flavorful and spicy. I ordered the 2 enchilada beef & taco plate with beans and rice. The waitress asked if I wanted the taco soft or crispy and I said crispy. Well the taco shell was hard as a Rock! I had a hard time biting into it. The taco had way too much lettuce and cold shredded cheese on top. The meat tasted 2 weeks old and burnt, with no favor. Honestly don’t even know if it was meat from a cow. The enchiladas were way too cheesy and a rubbery texture. The meat on my enchiladas didn’t even taste like red chili meat and were tough to chew. The beans and rice were a joke. No flavor and overloaded on the plate. Real Mexican rice should have a hint of red color to it but this did not. It was also soggy. Service was bad too, never got waited on and left disappointed and didn’t finish our food so bad. Not real Mexican food - coming from a true Mexican.

    I’ve been eating here since I was 5years old and the food has never changed. It’s the best in the valley and I’m so thankful that this restaurant is still in business. I’m so blessed that I was able to experience this amazing restaurant with my sons and grandchildren and they got to experience hearing from the owner Eva she’s known me and my parents since I was a little kid. The look on my grandkids faces was priceless. Please go and take your family and friends to El Charro.

    They've been in business for a LONG time. It's a cute spot. The food was good and the prices were better. R/C Cola was their most popular drink suggestion. The service was very friendly too.

    Enjoyed late lunch at El Charro's today. Yummy food, tasty Margaritas and very nice, enthusiastic service. We always are assured of same good Mexican food we remember from all their years in the same area. Comfortable seating and atmosphere. Drink specials daily, good menu with many enters to choose from. A nice senior's choice at a reasonable price. We will return!

    Server was a nice young woman, and the restaurant was OK atmosphere. However, the food was awful! I don't think I've ever had such a bad meal claiming to be Mexican food. Watery refried beans, tasteless enchiladas, bland tacos, served on cold plates so the food was soon cold. The place was empty and now I know why. Sad.
