We prefer to eat Paleo... ElCharro makes it so easy for us! Delicious food prepared gluten free & with a smile! Love the view of the Catalina mountains from the patio.

Chose this place because of Trip Advisor reviews, and I have to wonder what the fuss was about...this was so mediocore. I got the Reynose (spelling?) Chicken, one of their so-called chef specials, one of the most expensive items on the menu. It was rubbery, microwaved chicken that was so rubbery, my knife couldn't cut it. The sauce was tasty,...

Great Mexican food and the price is so reasonable. When we got our bill we thought they must have forgot something. The service was helpful and fast too.

Not worth a drive, but good if you are in the area. Right down the road from Sabino Canyon and perfect after a hike.

We stopped here on one of our last days in Tucson and really enjoyed our meal. My husband got a few different kinds of margaritas and the atmosphere just seemed really fun. The chips and salsa were tasty and the food was satisfying.

We always enjoy El Charro Ventana--the view of the Catalina Mountains, the ambiance and the food. It Although we occasionally try something new, our favorite dish is the grilled fish tacos! Muy, mue bueno, indeed! My daughter swears by the green corn tamales. For a light lunch, I love the house tortilla soup and a tacostada salad with lots of... More

We were a group of 14, they accommodated us on the patio on short notice. Nathalia got all our drink orders correct, for such a large group. When it became too windy, Nathalia found a table for us inside. The food was great and we had a great time!

The food was so excellently flavored. We loved the Sonoran style Mexican food. We tend to eat Mexican several times a week back home in St. Louis, but I can say I haven't found a place with such great taste and ingredients as we found at El Charro. The first day we ate there we arrived at 6:15 just missing... More

My family and I had dinner here two consecutive nights, with each meal being very good. The waiter was very attentive, the meal arrived quickly and was great both nights. Would definitely recommend El Charro and will return on our next visit to Tucson.

We make at least a few trips each vacation. Best margaritas and cheese crisp. Their Carne Seca dishes are amazing. They dry the meat themselves. I have never seen it on the menu anywhere else, a must have if in Tucson.
