just your typical mexican joint. the decor inside and all the miss-match walls made me want to leave but we stayed. nothing special in my book. food was good, service was ok. i'm sure the locals love it, just like i have my fave back home.

Workers can be cranky sometimes but food is always good. Margaritas is always huge, if you want quesos instead of salsa you have to tell them right away or else you have to pay for both.

My husband loves this place. I'm not a huge fan. I haven't had one thing that has been really good. We've eaten here at least 20 times :/

One of our favorite places to eat! Our kids love the Quesadillas and chips and queso! The Burrito Loco and Pollo Your Way are great! Margaritas areally even better! We often just order chips and salsa to go, maybe once a week at least because it's so good and cheaper/better than store bought!

Fantastic mexican cuisine! We tried the tacos and were very pleased with our lunch! Great queso, salsa, and guac too! Service was good and prices were very reasonable!

Another place that was walking distance from my hotel. Went here for lunch and had tacos and enchiladas. Both were very good, authentic tasting. Good service.

I love El Rodeo. I been there two times this month! First visit was on a weekday during work hours. We didn't wait long to be seated and our waiter was always available. I love the caneronez sopremo (shrimp supreme)! It's shrimp with creamy cheesy mushroom sauce, mushrooms, onions, and yummy shrimp. I had the tequila sangria margarita (which has... More

The food here is good. Maybe not the best, but consistently good. Very friendly staff. The horchata is great.

I live in FL and have been going to El Rodeo in Indianapolis when I visit my family since I was little. Get the nachos with chicken and shrimp, you won't be disappointed. We have tons of spanish restaurants in Florida but I have never had nachos as good as the ones up north at El Rodeo.

I had a family member visiting from out of town who enjoys Mexican food, so I thought this would be a safe bet based on the reviews. Nope nope nope. To start off, there were a few police cars responding to something at the gas station just north of the restaurant. Lights, sirens, the whole nine yards. Just swell, but... More
