Got a plate with a lot of gristle in it on an order of fajita nachos. I had eaten over 1/2 of it by the 3rd time it happened. I was grossed out by then so I pushed the chicken to the side and ate what I wanted of the veggies.. When waitress asked how everything was I told her... More

Considering Charro? Please reconsider. Charro screwed up 2 of 4 food orders. One of them was a kids meal listed as chicken tenders on the menu, but they served her chicken nuggets instead and my 7-year-old immediately noted that she ordered "tenders" not nuggets. She was then informed that they only had nuggets the menu was wrong, but they failed... More

This is a very large place so seating is seldom a problem. The food is above average Mexican with other things for the gringos too. Large airy atmosphere with high ceilings and a good southwestern décor Nice separate bar area has a good selection too

Food was great. Service was very slow on this night. They had moved to their new location. In the past, a young man named Mario was very attentive and answered all the questions my husband had about different dishes.

Charro has moved to a MUCH larger venue. Food is the same --very good. Menu is a little different. For instance some dishes come with rice and FRENCH FRIES. Now I must admit that they are very good fries but it's a bit odd. That aside the new surroundings are an upgrade and the food and service is good

This is our go to Mexican restaurant in Taylorville. The food is good and not overly expensive. The margaritas are excellent and the fried ice cream delicious. The wait staff is always attentive. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good Mexican meal.

This was our first time to Charro's and we were very pleased. We went on a Friday night and it was packed. We had to wait about 15 minutes but it was very worth it. Our waiter was very nice and prompt. The chips and salsa served had a nice bite to it. Or food was delicious and very plentiful.... More

Great food and fabulous margarita's. Wednesday only $2.00 :) Nice atmosphere for couples or family dining. A large back room for group gatherings. Portions are large and prices are reasonable.
