Why go to Chipotle when you can go here?

Bottom line: For the same amount of money that I would spend to feed my family of two adults and two kids at Chipotle, I fed them at El Charrito. I love Chipotle, but this is so much better! The grilled chicken I had was oh-so-tender; my wife's fajita beef was tender with great char from the grill... read more

Small place with about 10 tables. Food was good Tex Mex with a hint of authentic Mexican. I ordered the combo plate with a cheese enchilada, tamale, and chicken to standard. All we good and the sauce was my favorite. They did not skimp on the cheese either. They seem to have a lot of repeat customers and greet them... More

This is a genuine, authentic Mexican food restaurant. The food and service is very good. My son had Carne Guisada and the meat melts in your mouth. I had the Carnitas and this was also delicious. We will be back. Tip: when you are finished, just go to the register to pay.

Ever wonder what Georgetown looked like in the 60s? Well welcome to El Charrito. First be aware that parking is limited. Second breakfast has a lot of drive in pickups as their breakfast burrito is locally very popular. Walking in is like steeping back in time. While old the washrooms were spotless. Once seated you may get a great view... More

But all was perfect-polite and prompt staff handle us well. The food was Very flavorful and they had good options for the little ones ( but you had to... More

While visiting the area again, we had to go back to our favorite Mexican food restaurant. It had been 10 years ago since we had eaten there and the food was still great and very reasonably priced. Love their chips & salsa. We had a bowl of queso and a combination plate which included a tamale, a ground beef enchilada,... More

My husband and I frequently ate here up until his death. I then continued eating here, but things changed when it was only me. It became an atmosphere of wait staff joking with each other, using cell phones, and ignoring me and others. I went mid afternoon when the restaurant was very slow and there were regulars who would show... More

Been going for years - only ate inside dinner once - and it was crowded and too hot. They knew my car when pulled up there for a couple years in the morning for breakfast order. It's very popular and busy - but they are highly efficient in their service. Quickly take order out walk up window, and people also... More

Been our favorite Tex-Mex resturant since 1999. Family operation which provides consistent quality and service. Good portions for a reasonable price.
