The food, service, and serving sizes were impressive. The menu offered a lot of variety including several vegetarian options. I would definitely be a regular customer if I lived nearby!

Good food. Not your typical Mexican food. A bit plain but good. Great service. Clean and distancing.

I have been here several times and love the drinks and food is good, the waiters and the waitresses know us there but we still have to ask if we can sit up front, not sure why it's never a consideration by management when they...know we prefer it and it is available but we always have to ask and we've spent plenty of money here to not be given the BEST SERVICE!!More

Met friends in C'ville for late lunch. Picked El Charro because of food reputation and patio dining. Not ready to eat indoors until there is a huge downturn in COVID-19 cases. Beautiful patio seating as you can see from my photo of our table. Food...was excellent, as was waitstaff, and the frozen mango Margarita I had was outstanding. A good first visit and I will return again.More

Always good and always fun. We love this place. Homemade guacamole and the Texas Margaritas are the bomb.

The best Mexican in Cartersville. The loco rice is always good, sangria margaritas are delicious. The pollo con cream is fantastic. It is small so Friday and Saturday nights are tough but lunch and early dinner are always available.

I must preface my review with I am merely reviewing my dinner and not anything else The service was good atmosphere was good wait time good(Had reservations which was nice ) Staff were very friendly and kept our drinks filled , very important. I had...the number 11 which was an enchilada a burrito and soft taco. My only options was chicken or ground beef, I chose the ground beef which was nicely cooked and well ground and consistent. but not much flavor . The only difference between the burrito and enchilada was one was a flour tortilla filled with ground beef and a corn tortilla filled with ground beef . I have made hundreds of enchiladas and have eaten a few out and they are always filled with at least cheese whether they be beef or cheese these were covered in a red sauce and cheese and this is where my biggest issue comes in, the red sauce bordered on the consistency and flavor of spaghetti sauce. It was more Mexican than Italian but literally border line and the constancy was not your typical red sauce but more of a thin spaghetti sauce. The taco was ground beef lettuce and cheese.. not terrible but a taco My wife's Chimichanga was really good with stewed beef in a fried flour tortilla with melted queseo very good I took two bites The guacamole was decent but the flavor came late in the bite and needed seasoning a little salt and diced onion would have made it perfect. The re-fried beans were tasteless and watery with next to no flavorMore

My wife and I have been to many Mexican restaurants and El Charro continues to be in the top two. They hit the mark on food,drink and service every single time. Our first stop after quarentine will be El Charro outside seating area.

First let me say I'm not a huge fan of mexican food, i'll eat it but it's not my favorite. My wife has been here for lunch but I had not but she wanted me to try it and I am glad I did. It's...now my favorite Mexican restaurant in Cartersville. The food was so good and had so much flavor. I tried my wife and sons dishes as well and theirs were also very good. Service was great, prices fairly reasonable. We will definitel be back.More

This is our number one pick for Mexican food. The chips are gluten free which is a big deal in our family. Everything from the tacos, which are amazing, to the nachos are worth the trip across town. Every chicken dish I’ve tried is excellent...and my youngest daughter raves about the fajitas. Tender and tasty steak and chicken with grilled peppers and onions- even the smell is mouth watering!More
