Excellent!

Very good Mexican cuisine. We went there for lunch on a weekday, so it wasn't too rushed, although there were several tables filled, service was fast and friendly.

Good hot and tasty breakfast, service was friendly and prompt. Prices reasonable. Had the chorizo breakfast enchilada with a side of roasted Serrano peppers. Very good.

Lured by the good reviews I recently ate at El Charro with my family. There must be a "good" chef and a "bad" chef working here and guess which one was cooking that afternoon. Our meals were greasy & unattractive and the taco shells tasted old & stale. The guacamole was only fair. Service was barely adequate even though there... More

I'll start by saying that I was born and raised in Arizona but have been living on the east coast for the past few years. It is impossible to get good Mexican food in Connecticut so when I am back home I try to get my fill. We stopped at El Charo on a Saturday early evening and they were... More

We were spending the weekend camping and we usually like to end with a restaurant meal in town. What a huge waste of time and money! Wished we had just stayed in camp and eaten leftovers...would have been a much better use of time and money! We were lured in by the positive reviews and the word "authentic". It was... More

I honestly don't understand the good reviews, and urge these people to make a trip to southern California to experience REAL Mexican food. We were just visiting Prescott for a stop over when we got a hankering for something different. I thought that in Arizona, of all places, they would serve great Mexican food. The sign on the window said... More

we decided to go because all we heard were good things, plus we were looking to try something different than our ordinary place. We went in the evening time there were about 13 tables one server and one host. We sat down got our chips and salsa. Than a few minutes later our server came up took our order. Brings... More

This is where my husband and I eat 3-4 times a month. They bring me a hotter salsa on request; I love all the spices and ingredients. I usually order a combo that has the chile relleno and tamale. Both are delicious. Afterwards you can take a stroll downtown and walk the very generous portions off.

We were getting maps at AAA in Prescott and asked where to get good Mexican food. The debate began among employees and customers. But the woman who materialized from the back room said, If you want chili rellenos go to El Charro. And we did. And not only were the rellenos outstanding, but also the carnitas chimichanga. We would definitely... More
