Chicken, Steak, Chicken and Steak, Seafoord, Chicken and Steak and Chorizo, etc. You get the idea. I had their Tijuana Fajita (Chicken, Steak, and Chorizo). It was... More

There are numerous Mexican restaurants in Durham, North Carolina, but El Rodeo is one of our favorites. It's convenient to our home and it is a medium-size restaurant, big enough for the clientele. My wife and I have dined there on many occasions and my wife always has the ACP and most of the time I have my favorite, their... More

I dined with a friend at El Rodeo in mid-November at least a year since the previous visit. This review is about this most recent dinner. It's a Wednesday night and there are many empty tables and we're seated at a booth. Our female server appears quickly and asks us for drinks. We both want just water and she leaves.... More

We love to come here, especially if we're in a hurry. The food comes quickly, tastes great and the place is clean. One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area.

This review is regarding the El Rodeo at 3600 N Duke St, Durham, NC, North Duke Mall. The food here is pretty good, but the drink prices are the real reason to go. This place is Durham's best kept secret.

No complaints about food, service or atmosphere. Everything was exactly what I would expect from a typical Mexican restaurant dining experience. I'd eat here again.

The restaurant is in a cute little area of Downtown Duram that is definitely with a visit ... if nothing else to eat some delicious food at El Rodeo. The food is authentic and delicious. Lots of selection from the typical tacos to the fancier taquitos or fajitas. Plently more to choose from but my Spanish and my memory fails... More

Why do I enjoy going to El Rodeo every week? There are many reasons. True, it is close to my house, but the food and drinks are so delicious and well-priced. Also, the staff is fun to talk with. And where else can you sit down and dine in the evening for under $25 for two people? I recommend the... More
