Across the street from Harp's on Hwy 62.....bright orange building (you can't miss it). Average Mexican fare with good prices. The service was excellent. We went with a big group and all the orders were right. Good margaritas......

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.

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.

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!
