Phil here again, me and the Misses stopped in Fort Scott for lunch at El Charro. We started with queso and chips and salsa, the queso was good and the salsa was okay. The Misses even said the salsa is so so, but everything else was good. The food didn't take long at all and it was tasty, your average... More

We had ordered the lunch fajita and it was fabulous! Kids had the corn dog and fries, was alright. The waiter we had sat us where we couldn't have a high chair for my youngest and waited until the people were gone next to us to get a high chair. That was annoying because obviously he doesn't have kids to... More

The staff was very accommodating. The food came out right away but unfortunately because we are used to true Mexican food we were disappointed.

We are staying at the hotel right next door to the restaurant and were hungry after a long day of Fort Scott CC baseball. When we got back into town we didn't want to find another place to far so stopped in. I have to say I was pleased. The food was really inexpensive compared to California prices (where we... More

The servers are always very friendly, and know their customers that are repeaters. Food is always good and hot. One of our favorite places to eat.

I am not a big fan of Mexican food, even though I live in New Mexico. However, I love El Charro for the food, atmosphere and friendly staff. The prices are quite reasonable. If you need a Mexican food fix, try this one. I have also eaten at the El Charro restaurant in Pittsburg, KS and would give it the... More

The food at El Charro's is very good and the prices are very reasonable. The meat in the tacos was very flavorful and their salsa is delicious!
