A very typical Tex Mex joint, but the food was flavorful and fresh. The staff was friendly and efficient. They kept working the whole time ensuring the place was clean. Better than a lot of places I have been. The beans, rice and salsa was just like in Texas and the taquitos were tasty too. Good and quick, but not... More

Visiting the area for the day, and the family agreed on Mexican for a late lunch. It was good. Nothing that really stood out. I enjoyed the cheese dip the most. Lots of seating!

After bitter disappointments since moving here in June 2012 I stumbled on El Charro on a trip to Harrisonburg. I have since visited the location in Fredericksburg along with probably a dozen other so-called Mexican restaurants here in Va. We were to a point that my wife refused to try any more with me due to the completely unauthentic mess... More

I love this place. I try to eat here as much as I can. The value for the amount of food you get is outstanding. I highly recommend you try the white sauce with your chips.

To our surprise, it was a great find, with friendly, quick service, a large menu of the normal Mexican restaurant dishes for moderate prices, and a nice atmosphere (as long as you don't mind some sports tv). The booths are large and comfy and there colorful art murals on... More

A nice experience for a typical mexican style restaurant. I found the staff to be most friendly and very attentive to my needs as a customer. The service was quick and the staff most polite. The food was delicious and well prepared to my liking. If you're in the area and looking for a low cost meal that satisfies, you... More
