“No Steak, Plz”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We enjoyed the atmosphere (look, music) and the waiter was awesome (friendly, courteous, overall quick refills). My problem was with the steak it was so chewy I felt like a dog with a rubber toy and I could not eat it. They wanted to only refund 20% which is like $3.00. We had the manager come to the table and was able to discount to 40%. I suppose with double fries and nice crisp salad paying a little over $8.00 was okay.

“Quiet and Tasty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Service was attentive and helpful. The food was average but we enjoyed it. The chili verde was oddly different but worth trying. There are not may dinner choices in Dodge City.

“Not as good as it used to be...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our family recently returned to El Charro only to discover it is not being run by the original owners. Unfortunately, the prices have increased and the portion sizes have decreased. I was also very disappointed in the true lack of service we received. This was a week night and they were not incredibly busy, but waiting over 10 minutes to get our order taken and then another 15-20 for our food was most certainly not what our family was accustomed to. On the positive side, the chips are now made on site and the salsa is as good as ever!

“Love eating there...which we usualy do at least 2 to 3 times a month”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

We could make a meal on their chips and salsa. They are addictive. We usually order the same thing everytime even though we say we are going to try something new, we always end up ordering what we know we really like! Staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Excellent find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

On our cross-country trip, we made a last minute decision to visit Dodge City during our day in Kansas. El Charro was a lucky find. The service was very quick (we were there during lunch) and the food was fresh and authentic.
