Great spot for family lunch

We met our son and his family at El Rodeo for lunch and had a great time. Ordered off the lunch menu so prices were reduced from the dinner fare. Still plenty of food for all. Carne Asada was well prepared and served promptly. Best of all was the wait staff. They were very attentive and... read more

Recommended by the desk clerk at the hotel, we were disappointed. The food was warm, not hot (the plates were hot)... The cheese in the enchilada was not completely melted. The beef tacos were ground, not shredded, beef. We had to ask twice for extra napkins. Disappointed.

I particularly liked their chips and salsa. It had a nice rich flavor and was decently spicy. The food was good with large portions and the waiter was literally running from table to table to keep up with the demand.

We went for a friend's going away party. They were able to handle a large crowd of us. People came and went. The server was great! Even joking while maintaining good service. I was surprised that the prices were so reasonable. The chili Verde was excellent. The Margarita Perfecta was excellent also. Of course, when we started drinking shots of... More

This place is terrible! Food is extremely overpriced, the hamburger tastes like manwich. I couldn't even eat my taco. The enchilada sauce taste like it came out of a can. And the environment wasn't clean. I would not recommend this place, nor would I eat there again.

We keep going back to this Mexican restaurant. The staff is always friendly and attentive and the food is good. With ethnic restaurants, I occasionally order a hamburger to see how they do with food that is not their specialty. This was a pleasant surprise-very tasty. We will be back.

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
