This is one of the few places that serves the same quality food over and over again, they are fast if your limited on time but never hurry you out the door. Love this place, great food, service and right in the middle of town.

I'v heard some bad things about the employees but I wanted to try it out because mexican food is my favorite. The salsa was my least favorite because it seemed caned. The overall food was pretty good but not the best.

I came in close to closing on a weekday. I never felt rushed and the staff was very friendly. I ordered the nachos del mar and it was very good. The seafood was tender and tasted fresh. I will return......probably tomorrow

Can't understand most of the reviews here. Authentic Mexican food? Seriously? Having lived in Phoenix and Chicago and eaten at REALLY good Mexican restaurants my wife and I left our plates nearly untouched...the food was that bad. Never going back.

Across the street from Harp's on Hwy 62.....bright orange building (you can't miss it). Average Mexican fare with good prices. The service was excellent. We went with a big group and all the orders were right. Good margaritas......

What's not to like? The handpainted mosaics in the restaurant made you feel like you were in a resort town. The wait staff was very cordial, patient, and fast. The food was outstanding, especially the enchiladas verde (pork enchiladas with a green sauce with a little heat) and their guacamole. They also were one of the few restaurants that stayed... More

I lived in Mountain Home for 5 years before realizing El Charro was here but once I found it, I go at least once a month. This is real authentic Mexican food. If you like the real stuff, you won't be disappointed.

Great food, quick service, & reasonable prices. No drive-thru, but very quick inside ordering and pick-up, & all meals come with chips & salsa. I've ate at this restaurant for years and find them to be always flexible & accommodating. Substitutions/modifications (cheese sauce instead of red sauce, hotter salsa, etc.) in my experience, are always met with "OK" & never... More
