This local restaurant does not look like much from the outside, however,once inside you will find yourself in a time warp diner. It is in no way a five star, however, sit down and eat some of the best Mexican food in the state. The service was prompt, the food was very tasty and the price was extremely reasonable. The...

En route to ABQ - dinner time & reviews said place was good. Came in about 6:30 & the place was busy! A bit short on servers but they pulled it together. Food was way better than expected - decor & ambiance greatly lacking😳 would highly recommend

I had an order of gorditas, rice and beans. Each order had 3 gordita sandwiches so for the price (which wasn't bad) we got a lot of food. I highly recommend El Charro's it has a long history in Lordsburg, I'm 61 and I know it was there when my Mom was a youngster. I recommend that travelers going through... More

My family and I ordered take out from here and it was not at all what I expected. I thought it would be real, delicious, authentic Mexican food, but it was really greasy, not very well put together and there wasn't much flavor. I personally would not go back again.

If you find yourself near here and are little hungry... It's worth the stop. A little off the beaten path but the food is good and they always have a smile.. This is our fourth or fifth time here while on the road. Have only eaten the Mexican food. Not sure about anything else they serve.
