Great food every time, chips a salsa are great. The restaurant its self could use some up grades, but the food is very good. The prices are in line. They don't serve liquor or beer.

Much more like what you'd find in true mexico, not the 'tex-mex' that we americans 'call' mexican. Gotta love it that most meals come with the traditional stew meat/beans and rice. Very nicely seasoned and delicious.

Excellent Mexican food with great service. Chips and cheese are the best - and always a staple at family parties because they are available in large quantities for catering. Everything is good... My favorites being the chicken taquitos in corn shells and the seafood enchilada. My husband always gets the beef enchiladas. The only thing that would be better is... More

We are lucky to have two wonderful Mexican restaurants in Davison. El Charritos food is always fresh, tasty and the service is great. The restaurant is not fancy but always friendly and clean. Senior Lucky's has a liquor license so if you want a shot of tequila with your meal then pick Senior Lucky's. The prices are generally a little... More

We love El Charritos & their staff! The restaurant it self is nothing fancy, but we are usually stuffing our faces to much to notice! You must get an order of chips! These are not the free off brand tortillas chips other places serve you for free. All of the food is delicious you really can't go wrong! I am... More

I really enjoy the food here. Some things are a little more pricey than say Señor Lucky's, but you get what you pay for, and the food is always delicious and good quality. Also the homemade chips are the best I've had!

This is a family owned restaurant with really great food. The chips & salsa are extra, but worth the cost. I love the stewed meat in their burritos (which is my favorite). Good taco salad as well. Nice location in downtown Davison.
