Very good, cheap, authentic Mexican fare

We are staying at the hotel right next door to the restaurant and were hungry after a long day of Fort Scott CC baseball. When we got back into town we didn't want to find another place to far so stopped in. I have to say I was pleased. The food was really inexpensive compared to California prices... read more

The servers are always very friendly, and know their customers that are repeaters. Food is always good and hot. One of our favorite places to eat.

I am not a big fan of Mexican food, even though I live in New Mexico. However, I love El Charro for the food, atmosphere and friendly staff. The prices are quite reasonable. If you need a Mexican food fix, try this one. I have also eaten at the El Charro restaurant in Pittsburg, KS and would give it the... More

The food at El Charro's is very good and the prices are very reasonable. The meat in the tacos was very flavorful and their salsa is delicious!

I have yet to find Mexican food that can top this. Their salsa is always perfect and the food is consitantly good. If (on the rare chance) that something is not right, they will fix it fast. Very friendly waiters and you get your food FAST! There is virtually no wait. Sometimes I don't have enough time to eat all... More
