Both are delicious. Afterwards you can take a stroll downtown and walk the very generous portions... read more

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

Simple, but delicious Mexican food. The salsa is amazing! The service on the cantina side is always excellent.

In downtown Prescott, here's your best choice for Mexican. Menu has the traditional favorites. Very clean and great service. They brag on their Rellano which I found very good and you should try!

Never have I felt so unwelcome or disrespected in my whole life! Being asked by the owner to leave because we had 2 kids sitting at a table that were not eating (well he didn't know we had 2 other people coming in) we didn't even get to eat because our kids were apparently taking money away from his 35...

Went for late lunch. We noticed they had mahi mahi fish tacos..our favorite! So we ordered and to our amazement they were absolutely tasteless. The chipotle sauce was nothing more than mayonnaise with green food coloring. The portions were adequate but the price was ridiculous..$5.75 per taco! We also ordered shrimp tacos and they shells (2) were so soggy they... More

And I love mexican food, take trips to New Mexico just to eat. We stopped in for lunch, and I ordered a pork tamale and black beans. I have never in my life had a pork tamale with absolutely NO pork in it. The masa tasted good, but it was still just masa. The beans were OK. The green chile... More

The food is always good including drinks and the atmosphere is relaxed but fun. It's located right down town with all the action; walking distance to many places. Give it a try if you haven't done so.
