My husband ordered a plate of nachos and had to send it back.
They came with cold meat and that horrible cheese that comes out of a can.
I would think a nice place like this would be using REAL cheese. I can see
being served canned cheese at 7 eleven or at a ball park but here? totally
unacceptable. I ordered off the appetizer menu some lettuce wraps
which were very good. When the check came they deducted the nachos but
added a margarita to our bill. Neither one of us had a margarita.
This is a very nice place but don't know if I will return because of the
lackluster attitude of the waitress and the poor service not to mention
that horrible canned cheese. Come on management, if you want to charge $8 for a
half orfer of nachos you have to step up the quality of the food. No 7 eleven cheese for us.

Oro Valley is very fortunate to have their own El Charro location. The food is consistently good and they often have great discounted menus. Happy hour is well supported with a special location. The lunch menu offers especially good prices. The atmosphere and decorations are also very pleasing.

With plenty of locations around town, there is an El Charro somewhere close to just about any area of Tucson. The food is great, and very reasonably priced. The original downtown location is our favorite, but we went to the Oro Valley location, and it is a little dressier, but just as yummy. A Tucson staple.
