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.

After reading all the "glowing" reviews on here, and being in the mood for some good Mexican food, my wife and I headed to El Rodeo last night.

After a long day on the Harley we needed a short walk. After reading the reviews we chose El Rodeo. As we stepped in we were impressed with the atmosphere. The waiter did a great job and food was very good. We would eat here again.... Travel safe...

Definitely one of the best mexican food I tried in recent times. Every trip of mine will have at least one mexican meal. We reached Bend at around 09:50 PM on the suggestion from our hotel front desk rushed to Rodeo to make sure we will make in time as the restaurant closes by 10 PM. We were welcomed with... More

Food was very good, portion size was excellent for the price paid. Service was great throughout the meal. Would certainly come back the next time we're in Bend.

We came here because of good reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This is a great restaurant and easily accessible. The waiter was very nice, the food delicious and the decor nicely done. Yep, we would return and will.

We went on the suggestion of the owner of the Holiday Motel. Wow! Haven't had real Mexican food since we left CA years ago. Excellent! Good prices, fast and courteous service. Good drinks as well. This place serves up the real stuff and homemade guacamole! ole! Prices run about $9-12 a plate but they also have lunch specials daily! Great... More
