Yes, Yuma can be HOT! But the El Charro Cafe offers superb Mexican food in an historic restaurant setting. It has been family owned and operated for decades. My wife and I thought that the chips and salsa were above and beyond the usual, and my fajitas were also exceptional. It was an historic restaurant that has maintained its first-rate... More

A party of five came here for lunch while in Yuma for business. We saw many reviews raving that this was THE place to go for Mexican in Yuma and had been around forever. Maybe we had higher expectations, but this place sorely disappointed us. It was the least favorite of our Mexican meals during our three weeks in Yuma.... More

I have lived in the San Diego area for over 50 years, traveled extensively in Mexico, but El Charro in Yuma AZ is absolutely one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever eaten at. The first time we went was about 3 months ago, wrote a 4 star review for Yelp at that time, but I had obviously only... More

The food is good authentic Mexican food, The people that review this food as bad do so because they have not eaten real authentic Mexican food before and are expecting the Taco Bell taste. This food is great, but is real authentic Mexican food, service is quick and friendly, nice place. We have had both lunch and dinner and both... More

We came on this restaurant while looking for a place to eat the evening of the Christmas parade. The building is nothing fancy but the inside is traditional Mexican. We didn't have a lot of time before the parade so we decided to order something light. My wife ordered the Pollo Azado Mexican Salad and I ordered the Chimichanga. When... More

Sonny Gutierrez has continued the legacy his parents created. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The tomatillo salsa is excellent, don't forget to ask for it. Their giant tortilla with green chile strips is perfect for a party. They don't skimp on their portions. Their chile relleno is more like an omelet but I like that when... More

We thought we'd try this local restaurant because of the history, but the food was terrible. There have only been a couple of times in my life when I didn't want to finish my food after the first bite, but this was one of them. I didn't think it was possible to make a bad tamale, but they added a... More
