Specializing in fresh homemade, Mexican cuisine, Los Charros’ kitchen is overseen by Juanita Vazquez. Juanita grew up in Acapulco and lived in Mexico City and Cancun. A consummate student of the Mexican tradition, Juanita toured Mexico for 16 years and developed exceptional proficiency with the culture, folklore dances and cooking styles from the Aztec west coast to Mayan east coast of Mexico. She prides herself on the fresh preparation of pre-Columbian and classic Mexican dishes that native Mexicans enjoy; neither too heavy nor over-spiced. For “Americanized” fare, Juanita collaborates with her "Gringo", Timo, a restaurateur with experience at trendy restaurants in Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Together with our island cooks, the Los Charros team guarantees the finest in authentic Mexican cuisine, popular Tex-Mex specialties and local island fare.

Good food and Sevice

My wife and I enjoy going here once or twice every few months. Food and service are very good, yet for what you get it is very pricey. It is in the Tourrist area so I guess they can get the customers in even at those prices.

Unfortunate that there is lots of trash at the lot next door. The food was terrific. The staff was very nice. Inexperienced wait staff. We were the... More

12 of us enjoyed a magical New Year's Eve with Tim and his amazing wife and staff at Los Charros. They prepared a fixed price menu that, while not a huge amount of food by US standards, was absolutely delicious--fresh, well seasoned, and hot when brought out to our large group. In addition, they had a singer and karaoke that... More

Wonderful Mexican dinner. Tim is a phenomenal host. We ordered an appetizer sampler and everything was fantastic. Our teenage kids loved the food. Incredibly reasonable prices.

Authentic, delicious Mexican food served in an open air atmosphere by friendly staff. You can see the Ocean from the outdoor patio seating. We had a pulled chicken and rice dish served with slaw salad. Perfect for lunch. Loved the passion fruit drinks.
