I was overcharged when I ordered 3 cheese enchiladas a la mode. They brought out 3 enchilada dinners, so my $9.00 meal quickly became a $40 meal. They didn't take the food back, for whatever reason, and when I claimed it was just a misunderstanding...More

El Charro has the best breakfast in Waco. It is the Ric Flair of frijoles; the refried champion of the world! That's really all you need to know, if you know. The salsa is a welcomed backhand slap to the chest. The Migas put a...More

Stopped in for breakfast. Service fast and attentive. Accommodated some add-ones to our order. Food came out fairly quick. Tasted good. Didn't break the bank. Would we go back? Sure.

The food is delicious, and the prices are great! Everything I have had is piping hot and fresh. We go at least twice a week. Their breakfasts, lunches and dinners can't be beat!

This is a mostly quiet spot a bit off the main drag but one of our favorite and regular places to eat. Don't come for the atmosphere or expecting anything other than good Mexican food. Their chips are some of the best in Waco and...More
