If you want a treat.....try the shrimp cocktail!

Very simply I like the food, the service and the prices. Reminds me of a few of my favorite little Mexican food place back home.

The place isn't pretty but the food was amazing and the price couldn't be beat. Got lunch fajitas which were bigger than most dinner fajitas at other places. We usually pass through Columbia on the interstate and although this place isn't right off the interstate it's worth the 10 minute drive

We loved this place when we found it last year so returned when we made another trip to Columbia. Still love it! Read your menu closely and pick items you like and you will not be disappointed. Full Flavors, full plates and nice prices. If you are picky about fast service and someone right there to refill your drink you will not enjoy the experience. These folks are laid back. I don't think it is bad service, it is a way of life that we all should aspire to: quit thinking everything should go at triple speed and enjoy the atmosphere and relax and slow down and you'll enjoy the experience. This stuff is authentic, the wait staff and cook are authentic so kick back and enjoy!!

El Rodeo is the most authentic Mexican restaurant in Columbia. Everything is made to order. Real nopales, menudo, and even horchata are available. If you want burritos, go to Taco Bell or El Maguey. If you value variety and really good Mexican food, try El Rodeo!
