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... read 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.

Their chips are terrific. Love the J's Jumbo Burrito with stew beef. Get it "wet" with cheese and gravy.

This place has the best Mexican in the county. The beef and gravy is excellent. Wish they would get a liquor license.

This restaurant is pretty good. Their homemade salsa keeps me coming back. If you want a margarita with your burrito, you have to visit a place down the road though.

This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant. Over the last few year's the resturanrt has declined. Hair in my food, smaller portions, greasy chips, salsa that taste like turpentine. And the waitstaff are just high school girls, barley doing their job. So sad.

The food is always ready when we order ahead. We visit regularly and there is always 6-8 of us. The meals are good though they can vary depending on the chef. Only on occasion has a person been disappointed. The waitstaff is efficient and friendly. The meals are inexpensive and the quantity is sufficient.
