There were eight of us at a huge round table and the waitress took all eight orders without writing anything down. Once delivered all eight orders were perfectly presented. The portions were more than most people could consume in one sitting and the sopapillas were the best. One couple in our... read more

We went El Charritos for breakfast before leaving Albuquerque and we were quite pleased with the choice we made. Service was extremely friendly and nice, food was just delicious and portions so big that I could drive all day to Flagstaff, AZ and skip lunch without feeling hungry until dinner time. What else to say? Just visit it if you... More

the first time I ate here was back in 2003 which was not my favorite experience so I decided to not come back. Luckily I changed my mind a few years later...the food was delicious the service was great. I ordered the enchilada plate and it came with three flat cheese enchiladas, re-fried beans (home made) and Spanish rice. I... More

We love stopping by for lunch and dinner. Food is always good. I mainly stick to the carne adovada plate which is always really good. She always goes for the cheese enchiladas. A favorite of hers. Big portions and stuff to take home and reheat. We usually drive about a half hour to get there. We live in Rio Rancho,... More

El Charritos has a great menu featuring great New Mexican favorites! The menu also has a few basic American items that are also very good. The food is great and the prices are good. If you leave there hungry it is your fault because the servings are plentiful. Their half pound hamburger is also very good. Add some green chilies... More

The food was nothing to write home about. Service was marginal and they don't serve alcohol. We like beer with our Mex food

I went to El Charritos recently as it is in the neighborhood and I had yet to try it. First off, the person who sat us and our waitress were not all that friendly. The waitress made a negative remark about my wife and I bringing in our own coffee drinks and gave us water like she was doing us... More

We were recommended here by the staff of the hotel across the street. We sampled the quesadilla and the steak fingers and we're not disappointed. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Food was excellent and plentiful.

We met friends for dinner here and had a nice meal. The food was pretty good and the sopaipillas were tasty. We asked for extra chile for our enchiladas and were told they would charge us $1.75 extra….which we decided not to do. They don't have a liquor license so have your beer ahead of time. Would go back again... More
