Food is always very tasty, service is probably the most prompt of any restaurant that we frequent. My favorite place in Southwest Missouri to get a Chile Relano, and aside from that, my favorite dish is the Enchiladas Verdes. Great food, great prices, great service.

Good Tex-Mex style food. Great, fast friendly service. Lots of choices to choose from with good salsa for a starter. I don’t frequent El Charco but when I do it is always tasty. They have recently remodeled and has a very fun atmosphere.

Love Mexican food, but the menu I tried was not properly prepared and the meat was pre heated and not done in the moment.

I was traveling and looking for a place to eat lunch and wandered down the street until I found this place. It was a little out of the way, but the food and service was really good.

After driving all day, we wanted a relaxing sit down meal. I found the margarita weak and the meal bland. It wasn't bad, but I like a little more zip and have had that consistently at other places. Maybe I was just tired and cranky......More

(It's now called "El Charco", by the way) Our group of four stopped to find a place for dinner, and this was one of only a few choices, but reviews sounded good, so we tried it. I wouldn't normally bother with a review, but we...More
