Road Trip

Stayed overnight nearby in the middle of a 2 day road trip. Searched on here for a low cost dinner. Very happy with the results. The food was quite good, especially given the prices. A little shy on atmosphere, and if you can't find it, it's hiding behind the strip mall.

Not sure how anyone finds this 'authentic' Tex-Mex or worth a better than average rating. Coming from the heart of Texas, I can safely say this is NOT great tex-mex, it's meh at best. The food tastes like it's been under a heat lamp for hours, bland. Having tried every 'Tex-mex' in the Fredericksburg area, this goes to bottom with... More

Took a detour to get dinner when driving home and saw their sign. Walked in and was greeted promptly. We ordered from the combination menu. The beef was VERY salty. The combinations did not come with rice and beans which surprised us. We had the flan for dessert- not sure if there was paper underneath or it was burnt. The... More

Prices are very reasonable, but rather average food. if you are from an area where there are plenty of exciting new taquerías, much of the food here tends to be a rather old-fashioned and fairly Americanized version of Mexican cooking (a large selection of combination plates, various versions of sizzling fajitas, and so on). But there are some nice exceptions... More

The menu is huge-so many wonderful choices. My wife opted for a burrito & I had the taco combination-both very good. The servers are attentive and helpful

I've been going to el charro for years, and it has always been amazing! Mexican food is my favorite, and I always try new places, but nothing has compared to this joint. Try the fajita nachos - you won't be disappointed.

I have eaten here about 10 times in the past 4 months. I always go for the lunch specials which are mostly all $5.99. I mean really, WHO can beat that? The flavor is authentic, salsa is fresh and they bring you this creamy white ranch like sauce to dip your chips in which is very tasty. I have had... More

I LOVE some Mexican food & this place hits the spot every time I go here (which is pretty frequently...probably once a week or so). The queso is always delicious, the guacamole is always delicious, there is some other dipping sauce that they provide with the salsa, which is also delicious. You can't go wrong with any meal you order... More

Had a late dinner here and was pleasantly surprised at how good everything was. The chimichangas were good, and chips and salsa excellent! Better than most Mexican restaurants I've tried.

We stayed at the holiday inn express accross the street and enjoyed a nice dinner here. We had chicken and shrimp fajitas and the Los locos. Both very good!
