The service was totally unacceptable It took awhile for the waiter to take our order. After our order was taken, another couple was seated, they did not have to wait. And they got thier order before ours. Another party was seated after them and they got their order before ours. Another couple was seated, and we finally got our order,... More

Passing thru Ft Scott and stopped for a quick dinner. We stood at the front awhile before we were seated. When the lady brought the chips and salsa I asked if there was a nightly special. She shrugged her shoulders and said no English. I then noticed a sign that said Taco Tuesday .99 so we ordered tacos. We each... More

Typical small town restaurant... staff is friendly, not too busy, and the food is decent. Location is on the edge of town, but if your looking for a relaxing evening with some friends, definitely a comfortable place to enjoy.

Friendly and fast service. Had a great burrito that was more than I could eat. Waiter was friendly and helpful with what to choose to eat. We loved the guacamole it was a little spicy but very good. I thought the queso was a little flat but bland. No kick. Very reasonable prices. Would definitely stop again.

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

Food is average but the service was horrible...They did not seat us with utensils, then got an attitude when we asked for some after sitting for 5 minutes with our food already served, the waiter rushed us to order, my wife asked for sour cream and queso and they got an attitude, when they brought out our food they were...

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
