This is our very favorite restaurant in town. I would say we eat here at least twice a week and are never disappointed in the food. The staff is friendly and prompt with our orders. The size of the servings is generous and taste good. Our 11 year old son always ask to come here and eat because he loves... More

We tried this restaurant after it was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel. The atmosphere is very nice, even if it is a little noisy. We had two entries. The first was the poblano salad, consisting of a nice shell, rice, lettuce, grilled chicken and poblano peppers, and cheese. Very unique and good! The second was a vegetable... More

Great food and the service is always top notch. We usually have a large group of 8-14 people and we are always well taken care of. This really is the only place to go in Richmond for Mexican cuisine.

Mexican restaurant that has excellent food and is aware that not everyone likes spicy, hot foods. The waiters are prompt and plentiful.

We have eaten here in the past & this visit was below average. We ordered the Texas Parilla for Two & we received the lettuce/guacamole/pico/sit cream plate with HUGE chunks of wet lettuce. Gross. We had to pick through that. The salsa was very watery & was not very flavorful . When our order arrived, it was hot, however we... More

I had a very nice meal at this Mexican restaurant. Combo fajaitas with salad, etc. quick service with hot food and the waiter returned often enough to ensure that I had everything that I needed to eat and complete my meal. Overall I was impressed with the service and I enjoyed the meal.

Went here with my daughter while in town for the week. Any place that starts off with warm tortilla chips and a decent salsa is OK in my book. Also, the had Negro Modelo on tap rather than bottles so bonus points for that too. I had the chipotle chicken which was pretty good. I think the sauce was basically... More

When we first started eating at El Rodeo it was in a little non descript strip mall, but the food and service were excellent. Now they have a beautiful new restaurant. The food and service are still #1 with us. You won't be disappointed if you eat at El Rodeo.

We like to come here for the fajitas, since the portions are so large there is enough to take home for another meal. We have asked for them to substitute double salads instead of the rice & bean plate they bring, along with holding the tortillas since we're on a low carb diet, but I don't think they get what...

I have friends who love this place so I keep going. I have found the food here sooo unauthentic and boring. I have as yet to find one dish that I really enjoy - the chicken soup is the closest to home-cooked goodness. Everything else - an Americanized version of Mexican that is dull.
