Great food. Enjoyed the Huevo Rancheros & Chili Relleno's w/ Green Chili's. Sopapillas were excellent! Very good value for the price.

“Even better this time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

This restaurant was across from out motel, and we have eaten lunch here each time we stayed. This year, the place looked more settled than last - more furniture and permanent decorations. The service was good, and our food was very good. I don't like spicy, so had a BLT. My husband enjoyed his enchiladas, and had to get a doggy bag for part of it.

“Nice local spot on Route 66”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I was visiting in the area and the parking lot seemed full, so thought I would check it out. It was nice and the food was good. It was on par with other mexican food places in town. The food was more of a tex-mex style rather than mexico. The locals seem to like it.

“Plenty to eat, very good, very inexpensive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

El Charritos is directly across the street from our motel, Sandia Peak Motel, so we had to check it out for supper. Sparkly clean, well lit, and quite a few families were our tip off that this was a good place to come. Plenty of food on the plates, quick and friendly waitress who stopped to chat, and dozens of original paintings on the walls by a local artist of New Mexico landscapes. Since the bill was so reasonable we made sure the tip was generous! The leftovers were delicious the next day too! No alcohol = no big deal for us.

“Delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Diner style place, great basic mexican. Wonderful waitstaff: the real deal. One slight downside (for me): no beer or wine. Nor can you bring your own. Otherwise, perfect.
