Large portions of good food

The service was very attentive and helpful. The portions were very big and well-made. There isn't anything way above-and-beyond, but everything was dependably good.

The service was very attentive and helpful. The portions were very big and well-made. There isn't anything way above-and-beyond, but everything was dependably good. The house margarita was large, if a little spendy at $9. I had the chile combo plate (pictured) containing chile verde, chile colorado and a chile relleno. I'd recommend it.

This was one of our favorite restaurants for years. They are under new management and we have only been there once since the reopening. We were a little bit disappointed, but we will go back and give them another try...that's only fair, right?

This used to be one of my favorite places to eat then for whatever reason it stopped being good. I hadn't gone there in 5 years and decided to give it another try. I was told management changed and that can be a good thing some times. We were there for lunch, the portions were large and the service was... More

Very nice and seem to be run by a family and everyone was very friendly and the food was great.The staff was helpful and even directed where I could go to have fun with my children. I plan on going back if I'm ever in town again.

Lovely service, great food, great prices. We are from Texas, so it is HARD to find spicy food in the Pacific NW We love every menu item on EL CHARRO. TO GO IS ALSO WARM AND YUMMY

Seated promptly with menu's, 10min.wait for water, chips and bad (spoiled) salsa. 15min wait to take order then asked if we wished a drink other than water. Could only hear the itchy rants of the female owner. The disturbing part was her complaining about "The stupid people who kept coming in around closing Saturday night" when she had plans. After...
