“Best Mexican in town”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

In a small town with many Mexican restaurants to choose from, El Charro is definitely one (if not THE) best. Consistently great food and lots of it. Salsa and cabbage are just wonderful. You can't beat their lunch specials. Great service, and the added bonus of supporting a local, family-run establishment. Two thumbs way up.

“Best Mexican Food in Turlock”
Reviewed March 4, 2010

In my opinion, El Charro is the best overall Mexican restaurant in Turlock -- I've tried them all. Service is always prompt and food is delicious. Shredded beef and carne asada are consistently excellent. Try their Rene's Special. We dine at this restaurant weekly

“Best Mexican food in Turlock”
Reviewed February 3, 2010

I've been many times, and the food is always delicious! The service is good, not great, and it can be loud, especially on Thursday nights, so not perfect, but the food can't be beaten.
