Great Mexican food delivered fast.

Best overall Mexican restaurant in the area. Chips and salsa are delivered as soon as you sit down. Great food that's delivered to you quickly. Staff is always professional and meets your every request. Reasonable prices.

good food and great service. service is really really fast. if you want some gaps between course, you probably should order late. you appetizer is served before you eat the chips and main course served before you finish appetizer.

Stopped in for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We had potato skins for appetizers and they were a little undercooked. I had quesadilla for dinner and it looked like a pancake. It was good but not great.

My girlfriend and I decided to go to El Gran Rodeo for her birthday dinner. We thought that they would celebrate her birthday with us, since most restaurants do. Nothing was done. That's okay. But, This wasn't the first time going there. We ordered two meals (which were delicious) and two strawberry daiquiris (which were huge and also delicious). We... More

I don't know who has been visiting this restaurants, but they are wrong. As far as bad service, I walked in and was seated right away. As soon as I sat down there were three staff there, one with menu, one to take the drink order and one with chips, salsa (two kinds) and silverware. My order was taken and... More

Having decided to spend the night in Christainsburg, we decided to have dinner at this restaurant thanks to the reviews on Tripadvisor. I am glad that we did as the food and service was excellent, A tip - try their amazing margaritas - very good!!! One Jumbo Texan margarita per person should be enough!
