The food was delicious, guac prepared fresh and horchata was yummy! Prices are good especially the lunch menu. My waiter was amazing, very attentive and sweet! Best service I've ever had in a Mexican restaurant:)!

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.

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

They've moved to a new location. Chips and salsa to go is the best thing about this place.
