My wife and I ate here on a Sunday afternoon. I had the shrimp ala Diabla... it was fantastic, and HOT (I'd been warned). My wife had the carne asana, which was equally wonderful. Great flavors, albeit a tad pricey ($13 a plate). Worth every penny though. The only thing that didn't measure up was the tortillas, which might've come... More

My mouth is watering as we speak. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in town and I've tried a variety of dishes, but I always come back to the Chile Verde enchiladas. I think the service is wonderful, as well!

Stopped in for lunch. I had purchased a soft drink on my way and they actually let me bring it in, great customer service. I ordered the burro and did not like the sauce they used, they gave me another meal without any hassle. Would stop again.

A new restaurant, conveniently located on 6th near the Jetboats. There are a lot of very good Mexican restaurants in Grants Pass, but this one offers very stiff competition to them. I love shrimp enchiladas and theirs are the best I've had anywhere. Every dining companion has loved their meal and I have been with several different ones. The service... More

I have tried many types of cuisine in many states, and many Mexican dishes in particular and this is by far my favorite restaurant in Oregon. It is, unlike very many local places and restaurants in particular usually open. Whenever the craving for Mexican strikes, I know I can always partake of my favorite Mexican. The decor is pleasing, starting... More

There are approximately 12 Mexican restaurants in Grants Pass and we have eaten in about half of them. Most are okay, but they serve the typical gringofied, Swanson's TV dinner-style Mexican food...bland, bland, bland. And then there is El Charro Viejo! This small, family owned and operated restaurant opened approximately 6 months ago. Friends of my wife told her about... More
