Lunch with a friend. Ordered chicken quesadilla which was nothing more than boiled chicken and some jalapeño peppers. Watery chicken with no flavor and flour tortilla turned soggy and tasteless. No lettuce, tomatoes or sour cream for 7.99. Won’t be back.

We stopped in after church one Sunday on our way to the Y. My kiddo had a hot dog and fruit which came out promptly and must have been good because she ate every bite. The rest of us (husband, myself and 15 month old)...shared a shrimp fajitas for 2. Everything was cooked to perfection, lightly seasoned To allow the foods favors to shine and not greasy. My biggest complaint about Mexican is typically how heavy it sits due to the grease. This was no issues. Also I'm dairy free and they had no issues making sure that my food was fixed appropriately. Service was also great. We will be back. I wish I had a photo but we ate everything...More

Our server was friendly and excellent. The food came quickly as is normal at most Mexican restaurants. I did not like the salsa at all. It was missing something or had too much of something, but I did not like the taste at all. I...ordered the Burrito Supremo and it was almost cold (tepid at best). Also, the Burrito Supremo did not come with rice or beans and I had to order the beans separate, which were absolutely tasteless. Mexican is my favorite type of food and I have been to a lot of restaurants. Each one is different in their own way, but I have never actually disliked the food before. I will most likely not go back to El Charro because there are just too many other options out there and I don't want to spend my money on mediocre food.More

We love El Charro. The food is great and the service is friendly and fast. My favorite dishes are the maricolandia and the California burrito. Our daughter loves the soy burrito. You can't go wrong!

We have been to this restaurant for many years. The staff is friendly and their service is great. We have had as many as 15 people in our party and the service was just as good as our normal party of 4. I highly recommend...the restaurant. Food, service, staff = wonderful!More

Wide variety of choices. The queso dips are delicious. Worth a try! Service and staff always good and fast takeout if you rather take food home.
