“Food was terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We thought we'd try this local restaurant because of the history, but the food was terrible. There have only been a couple of times in my life when I didn't want to finish my food after the first bite, but this was one of them. I didn't think it was possible to make a bad tamale, but they added a red sauce with ground beef on the top and it was gross. The folded taco was dripping grease and had no flavor. I would try another Mexican food restaurant and give this one a pass.

“Great food, good price, real people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I have always found El Charro to be a great place to eat. Perfect spot to bring your out of town friends for a seriously authentic mexican meal. Be hungry and ready to eat nice large portions. The burritos are a challenge to finish off, but i keep eating. Staff is truly friendly and sincere. Location is an easy find and with parking.

“Hand made tortillas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We eat here every time we visit Yuma. There is something special about tradition, quality, service and family pride. The burros made with there handmade tortillas are wonderful. The specials are always a good choice. We will keep coming back and enjoying.
