Food is good and its very fast service. There isn't a lot of talk from staff...they are snapping to and hustling. When I have tried to talk to the wait staff they don't seem to understand what I am saying. They smile and hustle.

This is the absolute best mexican restaurant around. We frequently eat here for dine in and carry out. Portions are ample and prices are very reasonable. I compare all other mexican restaurants to this one and there is no comparison in my boook!

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.
