If you like restaurunt chains and factory food, give El Charro a miss. If you like a local experience that hasnt changed in decades, or even the "hole-in-the-wall" experience, El Charro is not to be missed. Everything is good to very good, but the chile rellenos are awesome ... not your typical batter and better than you get about anywhere... More

Other people have written about the setting... Not elegant. But the restaurant is clean and everyone is working hard. The right-hand rooms serve beer and wine. The left-hand room is alcohol-free. Our dinner was great! The menudo was deep, authentic, delicious, rich. The enchiladas, tacos and tostadas were really good, and the salsa perfectly spicy. 2 Dos Equis, a cold... More

This restaurant has quite possibly the worst food in New Mexico. Honestly, you're probably better off just grabbing a prepackaged sandwich and chips from the convenience store than eating here. The one exception is the salsa.....it is very good. And I will give credit to the waitstaff, they are very friendly and provide good service.

El Charro is an old timey diner in a small town. Enough said? Food: Pretty decent. Free chips and salsa to start. Most everything is "hot", whether ordered that way or not. Staff: The wait staff was extremely attentive and the food was delivered promptly. Prices: Kind of pricey for the location and quality. Figure about $10 a person with... More

By far the worst Mexican food i have ever put in my mouth. After the restaurants ranked 1 and 2 were closed and 3 in had a boring menu, this place was recommended by the hotel staff. What an incredible disappointment! My partner had a trio of different burritos that were indistiguishable from one another and smothered with cheese. I... More

My wife and I meant to eat at Ramona's Cafe on our trip through Lordsburg but it was closed. We tried El Charro's instead. The service was friendly and efficient. This restaurant is an old run down sort of place, rather lost in time back in the 1950's. We heard of a waitress at El Charro's who is now over... More

Poor service, expensive food and small servings. The only redeeming quality was the food was passable in the taste department. Pick another restaurant if you hungry!

We eat Mexican food a lot and the food here was a little above average and a good value. The Negra Modelo beer was served in a frosted glass and the service was quite good. The waitress was about 80 and great. No atmosphere, but locals gave it color.
