I was across the street in the courthouse area for an arts and crafts show when one of their employees brought us a menu and offered free delivery. Wonderful news as I was NOT wanting something super greasy. So I called in an order for a grilled cheese sandwich off the kids menu. My question is, what child, other than... More

Hello Katrina, Thank you for your feedback. Your review comes two days after we already addressed the grilled cheese buns. We've switched to a thicker sourdough which will start getting used on Monday. In the mean time we will switch out for the breakfast buttermilk bread. No matter what kind of bread we are using it should not have been... More

Recently moved to Prescott and have enjoyed visiting the local ( non-chain ) restaurants. Our friends told us to avoid El Charro because of the poor service and were they right! We went for lunch and sat at the bar. After the drinks were served and we had reviewed the menu, my wife said to the bartender " we're ready... More

Hello Bob, First I'd like to thank you for taking the time to post feedback which we do take seriously. I want to let you know that I did already speak with the bartender that worked on Saturday about your review. He is aware that rudeness to customers is not part of our business operations. We do keep two staff... More

El Charro is our Friday night outing every week. Love the food and the staff. We enjoy sitting in the lounge and we are well taken care of. The team working Friday's is excellent. If you like good mexican food and great service we highly recommend El Charro's. Let them know we sent you.

Why did I not know about this place sooner. We decided we wanted Mexican for our night out for dinner. Saw this in some brochures in our rental and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed a great meal and a local brew from Prescott Brewing. The food was delish. The portions were big so we were happy we... More

On a recent trip to Prescott, we visited the adjoining cantina for Happy Hour and decided to return the next day for breakfast. For some reason, we were the only patrons in the restaurant which can be a bad sign. However the food turned out to be very tasty. My husband ordered the Black Bean Skillet breakfast and ate every...

We have eaten here once a year for the past four years on vacation. It used to be very good and authentic. When we came here this time, it was very blasé. Nothing was bad or not cooked correctly, it's just that everything was bland and had no taste. Oh, well. We'll have to find another Mexican restaurant in town.

Service was fantastic from the beginning of our entrance. Darren did a great job explaining the history of the two places and accommodating our special requests. The food came out very quickly, and the portions were very generous and well prepared. The house salsas were very tasty as well. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend.
