We needed a quick meal during our travel stopover. It was 1/2 hr before closing, but the staff welcomed us and gave great service. The salsa and guacamole were very nice. My husband and I both ordered specials of the day: chicken/spinach enchiladas and a shrimp dish. Both were very good. They even brewed fresh iced tea for us, rather... More

I was seated quickly and the staff were very friendly and hustled. I had the enchiladas rancheras. Everything was excellent. I was just stopping in for a quick bite and I was in and out in under 20 mins. The only thing I was a little surprised by was that the dinner only consisted of the 4 enchiladas. There was... More

We didn't want to get back in the car so walked across the parking lot to this restaraunt. It was outstanding. Clean, nicely and brightly decorated and the service was impeccable! The food matched the service. Food was delicious, hot and served promptly. Could not have been happier with this restaraunt

Almost every Sunday evening we find our way to El Rodeo. The atmosphere is very friendly and the waiters know us well enough that they predict our order. The food is very good and my wife judges all frozen strawberry marguerites by theirs. You can't beat the prices either. Try the lunch buffet for a real feast and a very... More

A little pricy for dinner but the food was good and the atmosphere was Mexican. They have a lunch buffet. Service was above average.

Since we love Mexican food and this restaurant was next door to the hotel, we decided to take a chance. We were pleasantly surprised by all the fabulous choices. The colorful décor puts you in a festive mood. It was a very pleasant experience, so much so we went back the next night.
