Homemade salsa and chips start off the meal. I had the chimichanga served enchilada style, very good. My wife had a combination meal. Then we split an order of sopapillas for dessert. We left very full and satisfied.

Came for dinner and didn't have high expectations. That's good because it was just ok. Chips were bland and salsa was rather spicy (a bit odd for basic salsa with chips). They weren't busy and we ordered quickly. There beverage menu was 3 years dated (per the waitress). They were out of Corona too. It took at least 30 mins... More

Ordered steak fajitas. Meat very tough. Poor quality beef. Seasoning poor. Overall bad taste. Would never return. .......................................

Our party of four ate dinner here. Two had pollo and two carne dishes. The beef was dry and fatty - a poor quality of beef. Those two left hungry as they couldn't eat the beef dishes. The chicken was good. The fry bread was a little too thick. It wasn't light and fluffy as it should have been. We... More

Realizing I was too tired to head to Whiskey Row for dinner, I called El Charro Restaurant to have them deliver to my hotel room. They offer their full menu for delivery. I was told it was a 45 minute delivery time and was expecting luke-warm food in about 45 minutes. It arrived in about 30 minutes and hot! What... More

Arrived at 12:30, the heighth of the lunch hour. Service was good. I ordered a tamale and enchilada combo ... the enchilada was cheese/onion and was good, the tamale was dry. Beans were good, rice was dry. Chips were so so. I'd try somewhere else if I go back to Prescott.

Went there on a slightly later than lunch time. Took quite awhile to get water and menus. They weren't busy but it appeared as if we were in the no wait staff zone. Ever had that happen, probably. Anyway got our food, it was reasonably good, but seemed a bit pricey for Mexican food.

Saw the sign in the window about being a top rated mexican restaurant for X number of years in a row and fell for it. Went there for breakfast and ordered the huevos rancheros with green chili. The plate had a lot of food on it but it was almost all tasteless. Really dissapointing. The waiter was very nice but... More

This place had great vibes. Cool decor, a very clear love of our local band Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, and a warm and helpful staff. We just had chips and salsa with a few drinks at the bar so I can't vouch for the food but service was outstanding and the décor is perfect. Very Day of the Dead... More

Had dinner there some time ago. It was okay fare, but not great. Service was a bit slow. But, the T-shorts are great!
