We drive I-81 on our trips to DC and pulled off at Christiansburg and couldn't find a good restaurant that wasn't a chain so I asked Siri for help finding a good Mexican eatery. This came up on top with a high rating and cost. The decor is understated (for a Mexican restaurant...no gaudy furniture that requires sun glasses) and... More

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.

We have watched the owners' children grow up in the restaurant's different locations, and the blossoming has been beautiful. I usually request, "un jalapeño fresco," which is a fresh, raw jalapeño, that I slice and put on just about everything on my plate, including the guacamole... More

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
