Our restaurants in this area are pretty lackluster, unfortunately. El Charro originated in Tucson and, thankfully, chose to open a restaurant in the Green Valley area. Their food is, in our opinion, the best Mexican food in the area, if not some of the best we have had anywhere. Very fresh, innovative choices, great house margarita, atmosphere, excellent service, the entire package. I have to eat gluten free and the choices are extensive. The tamales are divine.... We have never been disappointed. They do it right.

Stopped for an happy hour on our way back from a Tubac golf journey.
The happy hour seems to be the main get together of the surroundings, very friendly staff.
The calamaries worth a try!

Service was average, booths seats are very low and uncomfortable, tables with padded chairs are best. Indoor/outdoor seating and bar nice features. Food was ok, not as good as I expected. Food was slow coming with no comunication from server. Needed to ask for more chips, salsa, water etc..

My wife is from Sonora, Mexico and even SHE loves El Charro. Good value, great food, generally great service, nice atmosphere. What's not to like? One warning...my uncle was out visiting and got the LARGE chimichange...it was the size of his arm! I love the Carlota's Salads. Everything is fresh and delicious. Their Sonoran Style hot dogs (foot longs for the summer, but sliders the rest of the year) are a regional delicacy. If you like hot dogs, you've GOT to try these!

Great food, not your standard run of the mill Mexican establishment. The flavors are very good in the tacos, tamales and enchiladas. The few times that we have been to an El Charro it has always been good.

With that said the only reason I didn't rate it 5 of 5 is the price. Seems always to be a little more expensive then most.
