“Maybe the shrimp needed the water?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Ordered the shrimp taco salad. There was a good number of shrimp but under the top layer of lettuce, everything was soggy and there was a 1/2 inch of soupy stuff in the tortilla bowl. Meal was really not edible except for the shrimp. The staff apologized and offered a coupon for our next visit. My husband's taquito meal was tasty. The salsa had a good bite to it and chips were fresh. Will try the restaurant again but not the taco salads!

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Stopped by for lunch on a Sunday while passing through Avon. The restaurant has a homey feel, not elegant but comfortable. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu is much different from the big chain generic Tex-Mex that has flooded the Indy area for decades. While there are many choices of enchiladas, tacos, burritos, etc., there are also a wide variety of dishes that are uncommon at the chains. I very much enjoyed the pork chile verde, with big hunks of tender pork in a green chile sauce served with rice, refried beans, and warm tortillas. One friend is a more frequent visitor, and had his favorite #10 combo. The house margarita is tasty, not overly sweet or boozy. The second margarita is even better. If you want to live mas, give El Rodeo a try.
