The food was very flavorful and satisfying. The amount is just right, perhaps a bit more than what you actually pay for. Great selection of foods too.

This happens to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in York. I am a fajita fan, and you can't beat the steak, chicken and shrimp fajita. Authentic Mexican interior add to the ambiance. Staff is friendly and eager to please. For good quality Mexican food at an affordable price, you just can't beat El Rodeo.

The food choices are many. The meal started off with chips and salsa, which were fresh and slightly different than most, which was nice. I had the burritos and rice. The meals came very quickly. The burritos were fresh and delicious. The rice was abundant but very little flavor. I added sour cream, and ate them. It was 3:00 pm,... More

Great Mexican food. Definitely don't be fooled by the outside. It looks like an old fast food place that was converted. Food was fresh and tasty. Good chips and salsa. Comfortable seating.

Although this restaurant is a little hard to get to, especially if you're unfamiliar with that part of the roadway, this is a very popular place, and it took us a while to find a parking spot; we left after not being able to find a parking spot the first time, but finding nothing better, we came back; boy, am...

Good flavors. Good drinks. Good atmosphere. Especially fun on mariachi band night. Live musicians serenade guests all night long giving you a little taste of Latin American culture.

My husband and I ate here while visiting York for a soccer tournament. The decor was very cheery. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. The menu is huge! I was happy that the menu indicated flute free items. Portions were big and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp and rice which was tasty and my husband had fajitas.... More

we stopped at the york location for dinner. Hadn't been to an El Rodeo in years and always loved it and had great meals. It was dirty, which for delicious food I was willing to overlook. However, the food was barely edible. Not sure what happened. NEVER going back.

My husband and I have been going to the El Rodeo in York since we started dating 16 years ago. We literally have never been disappointed in the food, and tonight was no exception. Not only were the (free) chips and homemade salsa plentiful and tasty, but my chicken quesadilla relleno was delicious, as always. And the crowning glory of... More

We ate here for the first time on a Saturday evening. The waitstaff was very nice. We were seated immediately. I ordered the San Jose Burrito. It was really good. My husband ordered the fajitas. He enjoyed them. The serving sizes are quite nice. The cost is reasonable.
