We stumbled upon this jewel a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to get back. The food is way above your average Mexican restaurant Jackson. The server and manager were very polite and fast. I wish we had a place like this closer to our house because it would be a regular. My sizzling skillet had beef, chicken, shrimp, and... More

By far the most consistent, best food, best service of any Mexican restaurant in the Jxn metro area. I eat here almost every week sometimes twice a week. Popular lunch location. Cheap. In and out quickly and it's always...ALWAYS GREAT. Evenings and drinks are just as good.

My mother and I stopped for dinner after being told it was a pretty good local restaurant. Wow - it was fantastic! We each had something recommended by the server, and the portions and flavors were phenomenal. If I'm in the area again, I'll definitely go again.

It's difficult to find restaurants that consistently offer great food. Because I eat out very often, I have several that I go to regularly. El Charro is one of them. The wait staff is always prompt with chips and salsa and drink orders and then taking entrée orders. My favorite is the chile rellenos and the pablona peppers. Their fried... More

I eat here at least once a week for the last 8 years. I eat alot of mexican. You won't find better service and consistently great food than here. Clean too. My favorites are the chicken enchiladas Verdes and the shrimp and chorizo quesadilla. If you like margaritas, try the strawberry. Ask for Lolo as your waiter. He is the... More

I have been eating at El Charo from more than 10 years. The salsa is the best I have ever had. The food is always great and the service is just as great! I do not go anywhere else to eat Mexican because I'm always disappointed when I do. I have come to know the servers and the owners. They... More

We are vegetarian and were passing through Jackson after dropping our son off at LSU. The lunch was very good and there is also another restaurant in their small chain located in Horn Lake,MS. We have eaten at the Horn Lake location multiple times as it is close to where we live. The food is always great with enough for... More

The taco soup was outstanding! I highly recommend it to whoever wants something light and spicy. However, the chips and salsa were a little bland.

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. My standard order is the chimichanga (chicken). Can't go wrong.
