The lady at our hotel gave us a list of Mexican restaurants but she recommended Charanda. We went and it didn't seem too busy but customers kept coming in. The food was delicious and very authentic. The inside looked like your classic Mexican restaurant but overall I would come back

We tried this place for lunch since we had a coupon. We were so glad we did! We tried the lunch chicken fajitas and they were delicious. Served with very tasty refried beans and a nice refreshing salad with fresh guacamole on top. It was a nice change from the rice and beans most places give you. Restaurant was super... More

Love the food here and service is always great . Read the other reviews and can't figure out what they're eating. I'm a weekly dinner at Charanda and I've tried alot of different plates and I've always be happy .

The place is nice inside and the food is normally very good. Portions are normally large and food is tasty. The only issue is that sometimes the service is slow. Besides that, nice place to go.

I enjoyed the mole chicken and the soups were very good. It is not your typical, thrown together, junk food that you find at so many mexican restaurants anymore. It is worth a try if you are in the mood for mexican.

Our hotel gave us a list of restaurants nearby and because we love Mexican food we went here. We have eaten in several Mexican restaurants and have to say that this one is right up there with the best. We started with the house special 28 oz margarita for $6.00! It was excellent though we don't think it was particularly... More

We stopped here for a late weeknight dinner and enjoyed good, inexpensive drinks and better than average chips and salsa. The taco salad was excellent and is offered with chicken, ground beef or shredded beef. The daily special burrito was large as were the portions of rice and beans offered with it. Service was quick and pleasant.

The servers were attentive and not bothersome, the hot food came hot and cold came cold. Did not have to remind the server of anything that was forgotten which is sometimes a problem at other eating establishments. On a upscale note. The Statesville Record & Landmark newspaper has a coupon for this place in the Sunday Edition and makes eating... More

Food is typical American "Mexican" too pricey for average food. Not really authentic. Service slow. Used to be good food and service, but not at all impressed from this visit.
