It was a great restaurant. We had stayed at Best Western Plus and the manger referred us. WE will be back again.

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.

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
