I have a lot of food allergies, but it looked like they had some menu options that would work for me. I called to see if they could accommodate me. She just said, "no." No question about what I'm allergic to. I have never in my life encountered this from a restaurant. Worst service ever.

The Chicken Taco Salad Cazueala is outstanding along with several other dishes they offer. The price is unbeatable and the atmosphere....well you are there to eat so who needs atmosphere, right?

Best Mexican Restaurant in Nampa hands down. Excellent lunch specials honored on Saturday and Sunday too! Good drinks, great tasting soda. Great salsa and green sauce too! Limited seating for large groups. Authentic Mexican food well supported by local hispanics. Large portions good value.

I have been to El Rodeo many times over the years and keep going back. The food is always hot, fresh and plentiful. And always tastes soooo good. And they have the best salsa I've ever eaten. I have gone there just to get some salsa to go. I've been to different parts of Mexico many times and each time... More

After reading the reviews for El Rodeo, my wife and I had to try them. We were not disappointed! I never knew Mexican food could taste so fabulous! My wife kept saying yum yum! The portions are very generous also. :) Wife and I split a combination meal and had more than we wanted to eat! I'm planning on trying... More

My brother introduced us to the place and we were fairly leery aBout it because of the location. However there food is to die for, I've only ever gone during lunch but they are fairly priced and large amounts of food. Very tasty good and nice staff.. And the horchata is soooo yummy! Stop by and enjoy great Mexican food!

If you want authentic, large portions, ridiculously low prices...this is the place! We didn't get the shrimp cocktail, but will next time. it is huge! My burrito was so big that I only ate 1/3. Fajitas were terrific.

This is great comfort food for me. Texas born and raised, the food here is more along the TexMex lines. It's a bit greasy and cheesy, just the way I like it. The beans taste like they are made from lard like they should be. Lunch is $5 for enough food to feed me and my wife both. And the... More

A favorite when we are in the Nampa area. Great food for a good price, one of those out of way great places that most people pass by.
