I used to come to El Rodeo all the time, practically inhaled the queso sauce on the chicken chimichangas, I was disappointed that it had been replaced by a different mexican restaurant. I love the new decor, the stars are quite lovely, however the food is just not the same. I'll have to go to the El Rodeo downtown from... More

I am from Texas so my review maybe a little skewed. We have some of the best mexican food in the states in my opinion. The restaurant was nice on the inside and the employee's were very friendly. We requested a table and were sat all the way in back in the banquet room. They sat a large party in... More

I enjoy eating at the El Rodeo off of Glenwood Ave North (near Pleasant Valley area). They are fast and the food is fresh and hot. They have very nice sauces and excellent soft white cheeses. Mmmmm!

Being from Canada, I don't often have the opportunity to enjoy Mexican food at a reasonable price. The service was fast and friendly and te food was delicious.

El Rodeo has great food. It has a great theme inside. Waiters are very friendly and a very clean place...I judge a restaurant by the bathrooms...IF they aren't clean, neither is their kitchen (which we don't see)

Not California Mexican but not as bad as I thought it might be. Watery salsa, decent chips, great assortment of veggies in the veggie fajitas, an abomination passed off as guacamole, flaccid lettuce/tomatoes. All in all, decent but I wouldn't say delicious but it was filling and relatively inexpensive. Service was fast and friendly. Vegetarians and vegans take note, server... More

Has to get 4-stars when you make it 15+ years and there are no other Tex-Mex places in town that are any good.
