I've been dining at this establishment since their opening at their original location in the Market place umpteen years ago. While they have moved and updated, the friendly people, the delicious food, and the fast service have always remained the same. Their chips, white sauce, and salsa are served as you sit down, and that white sauce is always so... More

My husband's family goes here for everything! We were in last night for my mother-in-laws birthday. The food was fantastic as usual. Love the fresh made chips and salsa. The white ranchy like stuff is pretty much liquid crack. Always look forward to visiting here.

Went on a Saturday for lunch. Waiter was very friendly. The food was good, but not great. I had chicken, but very little chicken was on my plate. Mostly veggies and rice. Will return as this is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area.

I've been dining at the El Grand Rodeo for over 10 years. Initially located in a strip mall, the restaurant later moved to a building vacated by the Shakers franchise. Although a bit noisy due to the high ceilings, the dining area is open and very comfortable for the dining experience. Families and large group come to EGR to socialize,... More

Me and My Fiance and his family ate here yesterday afternoon, we've ate here before and have never had complaints in the past. Everything would have been okay this trip as well, except for the attitude of our waiter when he wrote down the wrong thing for my fiance's meal. My Fiance ordered the chimichangas, which is what he always... More

This place is always good, fast, and reliable. The food is not amazing but it is tasty and well prepared. Margaritas have tended to be on the weak side but still good.

On our overnight stop, we choose this restaurant for dinner based on trip advisor reviews and proximity to our hotel. The atmosphere and decor was nice, food was good and servers were attentive. Nice way to spend an evening on the road.

We went here with my family around 1:30. The restaurant was busy but we were seated quickly. The menu was decent. Many traditional Mexican items. The portions were huge. Definitely enough food! The food itself was ok. I can't say that I would return. The chile rellenos were flavorless and tamale just mediocre. My husband didnt enjoy what he chose.
