“Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

What's not to like? The handpainted mosaics in the restaurant made you feel like you were in a resort town. The wait staff was very cordial, patient, and fast. The food was outstanding, especially the enchiladas verde (pork enchiladas with a green sauce with a little heat) and their guacamole. They also were one of the few restaurants that stayed open past 7 PM there.

“Great Authentic Mexican Food”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I lived in Mountain Home for 5 years before realizing El Charro was here but once I found it, I go at least once a month. This is real authentic Mexican food. If you like the real stuff, you won't be disappointed.

“Authentic Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Great food, quick service, & reasonable prices. No drive-thru, but very quick inside ordering and pick-up, & all meals come with chips & salsa. I've ate at this restaurant for years and find them to be always flexible & accommodating. Substitutions/modifications (cheese sauce instead of red sauce, hotter salsa, etc.) in my experience, are always met with "OK" & never with "no". Jalisco Special is great, and the cheese dip is excellent. Why anyone would recommend El Chico or Letty's over El Charro is beyond me!

“One of our favorite lunch spots!”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

They do a nice, quick, friendly lunch, and are eager to please. I always get the taco salad or chimichanga, and also like their cheese dip. Have never been here for dinner, mostly because we like a beer or margarita with our mexican food when we go out for dinner!
