“Fast service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Like most Mexican restaurants the food was prepared in advance and was heated up to serve. They supply you with ample chips and salsa as an appetizer and they are good.
We ordered the Steak Fajita and split it. It was good tasting and filled the twoi of us up.
I have eaten there before and I would go back to this restaurant to eat again.
Prices are very reasonable.

“Favorite Mexican Place in the NRV”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

When I want Mexican, this is my go-to place. Atmosphere is nice, but the food is consistently delicious. If we want Mexican specialties or if we want standard burritos or tacos, this place always offers the freshest taste around. That's why there's frequently a line out the door to eat here!

“Memorable meal at El Gran Rodeo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor rave reviews. The service staff is very friendly and helpful. We found our food choices, the taco beef salad and enchiladas supreme to be totally lacking in quantity, taste, and the exceptional preparation reported by other reviewers. Not what we expected and surely not the best Mexican food available in the area.

“Very Authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Enjoyable dinner. The highlight was the cucumber margheritas. It sounds weird but was very tasty. It says a lot about a Mexican restaurant by the way the rice and beans taste. El Rod's were exceptional. For some reason my wife did not like the chile relleno but never said why. The wait staff were extremely knowledgeable of the menu and very attentive. Highly recommend
