Great food, good service!

One of our favorite places to eat! Our kids love the Quesadillas and chips and queso! The Burrito Loco and Pollo Your Way are great! Margaritas areally even better! We often just order chips and salsa to go, maybe once a week at least because it's so good and cheaper/better than store bought!

Another place that was walking distance from my hotel. Went here for lunch and had tacos and enchiladas. Both were very good, authentic tasting. Good service.

I love El Rodeo. I been there two times this month! First visit was on a weekday during work hours. We didn't wait long to be seated and our waiter was always available. I love the caneronez sopremo (shrimp supreme)! It's shrimp with creamy cheesy mushroom sauce, mushrooms, onions, and yummy shrimp. I had the tequila sangria margarita (which has... More

The food here is good. Maybe not the best, but consistently good. Very friendly staff. The horchata is great.

I live in FL and have been going to El Rodeo in Indianapolis when I visit my family since I was little. Get the nachos with chicken and shrimp, you won't be disappointed. We have tons of spanish restaurants in Florida but I have never had nachos as good as the ones up north at El Rodeo.

I had a family member visiting from out of town who enjoys Mexican food, so I thought this would be a safe bet based on the reviews. Nope nope nope. To start off, there were a few police cars responding to something at the gas station just north of the restaurant. Lights, sirens, the whole nine yards. Just swell, but... More

If you want some good authentic Mexican food- go here. I live here in Indpls, and been to a lot of Mexican places, and this is by far the best place to go for food, salsa and customer service. The pico de gallo is awesome- if you're really hungry, go for the Spicy Burrito- the huevos rancheros is good- and... More

Although not a big fan of Mexican food have to bow to the wife and friends once and awhile. I had a sauted shrimp dish that was delicious. everyone else had traditional fare. No complaints and everyone got full. Mostly a family atmosphere and little noisy. Nice spicy salsa. I'd go back.

The portion were great, I guess I just prefer a more authentic taste, and real cheese. The margarita was pretty much a virgin :(
