Service is excellent and the food delicious, margaritas were good and the beer cold. As the rain pelted down we decided to move the table away from the window. Word of advice....don't!! The glass table is... More

Tastes food served by friendly staff. They have free wifi and good drinks too. The platanos are yummy. I like food spicy, so I added their hot sauce. Clean bathrooms and a pretty view.

We stayed at the Lifestyle Resort next door and needed to get away from the resort food. Found Los Charros and then came back a second night. The fajitas were wonderful and the margaritas and mojitos were as well. Everything was so fresh. We went deep sea fishing and caught a 60lb marlin. The captain filleted some of the meat... More

A lot of great sharing options when you are looking for an afternoon snack. Sit back with a fruity drink and share a couple of entrees.

Dinner was perfect, excellent, one of the best we ever had. The wine was a great addition to our meal. The staff is... More

Specializing in fresh homemade, Mexican cuisine, Los Charros’ kitchen is overseen by Juanita Vazquez. Juanita grew up in Acapulco and lived in Mexico City and Cancun. A consummate student of the Mexican tradition, Juanita toured Mexico for 16 years and developed exceptional proficiency with the culture, folklore dances and cooking styles from the Aztec west coast to Mayan east coast of Mexico. She prides herself on the fresh preparation of pre-Columbian and classic Mexican dishes that native Mexicans enjoy; neither too heavy nor over-spiced. For “Americanized” fare, Juanita collaborates with her "Gringo", Timo, a restaurateur with experience at trendy restaurants in Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Together with our island cooks, the Los Charros team guarantees the finest in authentic Mexican cuisine, popular Tex-Mex specialties and local island fare.
