This is a favorite mexican restaurant of Spotsylvanians and those of the greater FBurg area. It is a quiet cool place with large booths and even larger tables with two big screen TVs broadcasting the sport du jour. The wait staff is attentive and quickly ushers out mountainous baskets of chips and extremely delightful salsa both red and white (their... More

We visit El Charro every year, once a year when we drive down from Montréal to North Myrtle Beach. We like the fact that it's within walking distance of our hotel (South Point Sleep inn). We like the ambiance and the food, is good, the prices resonable and service is speedy and efficient. It's a nice place to relax after... More

I had a very good experience for my one and only lunch visit. I ordered the queso with beef. It actually filled my belly. However I did manage it eat both tacos as well. I asked for iced tea and was severed a very sweet ice tea. The bathroom was very big. The other patrons seemed very happy with their... More

Lovely chain restaurant in Fredericksburg. Extensive evening menu with lots of choice. The staff were very welcoming and cared for us. The food was above average and attractive as it is traditional Mexican dishes The costs are reasonable. We enjoyed the evening.

Fresh beyond belief with a flair for the perfect presentation of the dinner. More food than 2 people can eat and the cost was very, very reasonable. Clean to perfection and lots of local's. A place not... More

Our family of 4 ate there this evening. The food was good but not exceptional. I was hopeful by the look of the place that it would be great. The waitress was absent once we served and only after we asked for her did she reappear. Guacamole was not much more than mashed avocado. The price was about $16 per... More

Not going back. I could have bought a frozen dinner much cheaper and MUCH better. Food was awful! I think they opened cans and heated it. ... worst Mexican food I ever tasted! Don't waste your time or money folks!!

My favorite Mexican restaurant hands-down. Whenever I'm the mood for Mexican I go here. I usually get the chicken burrito deluxe rice and beans and a crunchy taco.

Love this place. It's been my entire family's favorite for years. The service is always fantastic and quick but they don't hound you either. Perfect balance. The food is consistently good. I often just get their chips, salsa and awesome guacamole as take out for game night.
