If you're going to serve crappy food, you should at least be polite. We had been turned off by the Wildwood Road El Rodeo in the past, but it was more of a matter of preferences. Lately, we gave it another shot and had two positive experiences. However, tonight, my husband ordered a beef dish and the meat was very... More

The fajitas were done right - caramelized veggies and seasoned meat. Fresh, homemade salsa was great too. A whole lot of food, I couldn't finish the meal, hubby had to do it for me.

I had dinner here since the hotel I stayed in was next door. The front desk said they had good food and they do. The salsa was fresh and had a great flavor and the chicken chimichanga was great. Service was friendly and attentive. I would eat here again when I am in the area

Good Food, Service and Great Margaritas ! Make sure you get some Enchiladas they were fantastic and the Guacamole was really good also but make sure you get a Texas Margarita ( you can only order one )

Overcook Fajitas. Frozen spinach quesadilla. Almost a whole onion on Caesar Salad. It'll do in a pinch. Don't expect deliciousness.

We were surprised at the good Mexican food at the El Rodeo restaurant in Salem VA. We are from Texas and love out Tex-Mex food and this place was very good. Good service and decent prices too.

Hands down, the best frozen Margaritas in town. The food is about as Mexican as Vladimir Putin, but the staff is personable and really funny once you get to know them.
