We like this place because it's family owned and they are consistent in their service and food. We visit it every time we are in Bend because it's a family atmosphere and we don't have to worry if we have a large group or noisy kids. The food is in large portions. It's your typical "Americanized" Mexican food with some... More

Huge portions, plenty of choices on the menu, and very tasty! Bean tostada could have easily been shared!! Fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and beans served on a crispy tostada. Highly recommend and will be back again.

The whole family loves El Rodeo. Warm greeting, super spiffy, and just yummy! You will feel welcome and the salsa is always fresh and good. If you have company that are "challenges" to find something they like, the Mexican food here is sure to please. The menu has both simple "American-style-Mexican fare" and also more authentic flavors to choose from.... More

Went there for the first time tonight and if we get the chance, will definitely return. Couldn't ask for better service or nicer staff and as a bonus, the food is great and you get it exactly the way you ask. Value was excellent.

The food at El Rodeo is average. You can get as good or better going to basically any Mexican restaurant in the Bend area. We have eaten here at least half a dozen times because it is a short drive. We have eaten there when it was crowded and service took long, but that's understandable when it's busy. We have... More

Others have said this isn't autherntic enough, but I'm not sure what they expect from a family restaurant in Oregon?? We are not huge Mexican fans, but liked the food here so much we visited for 2 out of 3 meals in the town, wish we had made it 3 really. If you don't like children eat in the bar... More

Stopped in for lunch before a meeting and was blown away. The food was very good and the people were very friendly. Be sure to give it a try it is worth it.

Visiting Bend we took our grandkids (ages 6 and 3) here for dinner while their mom and dad had a "date" night. Good food, reasonably priced. They do have a kids' menu, too. Service was good and the owner very friendly. Made it a point to stop by and check on us. Recommended!!

Mexican food is supposed to be full of spice and flavor, this place lacks both extremely, eat at a better Mexican place this one should be avoided.

We have eaten here a number of times since moving to the area, in addition to a few times while here house hunting. The food is very good. The service is good.
