The food was great. I had some work to do, so appreciated the well-lighted restaurant and booth. The staff are quiet and, although not unfriendly or unattentive, they leave you to yourself.

We come through Pendleton twice a year and the El Charrito has become one of our favourite Mexican restaurants in our travels. Our server was very friendly. And always smiling. This time we did something different - we ordered one order of shrimp fajitas and shared it. Our past experiences were that we always ended up leaving food behind due... More

We eat here every time we come to Pendleton, which is once or twice a year. The food is really good - I've had at least 6 different lunches or dinner items there and they were all tasty. The wait staff is friendly, attentive and accurate with your order. Speak some Spanish? They always smile when I tried my Spanish.....

We had a very nice Lunch. I had the #8, at the suggestion of a friend, and it was quite good. This is a typical "Me, Too" type Mexican restaurant, but the staff is friendly, and service is reasonable. The Combo section of the menu is extensive, so you can get almost any combination imaginable. Lunch for 2 was less... More

Good service, tasty food! The lunch menu is simple, but nice. The lunch offerings are standard fare for Mexican, but the quality is good and the lunch prices can't be best!

It was wonderful! We all enjoyed our dishes. The food was great and the décor was authentic. The only odd thing was that it seemed strangely quiet in the easternmost dining room where we were. Like you could hear someone else 20 feet away scraping their cutlery on their plates. I suppose I'm used to more of a booming speaker... More

We shared a Mexican plate and a little of wine. Total for the two of us not including tax and tip - $16.99 Service is average and could use a bit of improvement.
