I love the fajitas that are piled on the skillet and the queso...that queso is great, Avoid the bathrooms as they're quite dirty.

I am a big fan of El Charro. I love the Pollo Especial (with chorizo) and find the staff always ready to practice my Spanish.

The waitress did not greet us, just asked for our order. Came off as rude, therefore, her tip reflected that. The fajitas were dried out (mixed combo), the rice was definitely out of an already prepared package. The salsa was basically tomatoes with some cayenne pepper in it, which was not even close to tasting like salsa. The music playing... More

We like the food, but if someone isn't a waiter they usually won't know english to help you. Simply asking for a refill or to get our waiter for us always seems to be an issue. We don't go there much, but when we're hungry for Mexican food, we do go here instead of other restaurants in town.

They take chips that others had on there table and left. Then. They put them back in the mix and give them back to you to eat. Not me!!!!!!

We live near Muskogee, Oklahoma and have dined in about every restraurant in that town. If you enjoy authentic Mexican food this is a good place to dine. The food always tastes fresh made. The staff is warm and friendly. We enjoy eating here for a weekend dinner. Great food for the cost.

We have eaten at both the Tahlequah and Muskogee El Charro's. Both have good food and an extensive mexican food menu. Both times I have been to the Muskogee location, it seems like they don't try. My favorite meal at these restaurants is the taquitos con queso. They have a marvelous white cheese queso dip and also they bring out... More

Last time I reviewed El Charro I was really disappointed. I visited the restaurant again recently and I must admit it was much better. Actually a lot better. I ordered something different and I thought it was really good. My first time must have been a fluke. I plan on visiting again real soon.

I had lunch today at El Charro (July 25, 2010) and had the # 3, which was a cheese enchilada, bean burrito, with beans and rice.. From what I heard at work and some of the reviews I had read I was looking forward to eating there. I was not impressed with the food at all. I could have gotten... More
