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

I could have made this at home. The meat has an awkward taste, and I don't lioke my drink to be in a quart glass.

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.
