We really enjoy Mexican food and have been disappointed that Concord's formerly leading Mexican restaurant has been cutting back and lowering the quality of their offerings.
What a pleasant surprise to have lunch today at the ( relatively) new El Rodeo!
It's authentic, tasty, a good value, and the staff is wonderful.
From the initial tastes of the Margarita, chips and salsa, it got even better. Simple meals like the chimichanga and quesadilla were excellent, as was even the refried beans and home- made guacamole.
The service was quick and friendly, and the prices were very reasonable.
We'll be coming here often, and we're overjoyed that good Mexican food has returned to Concord.

Found this place by accident and are so glad we did.
Have eaten here twice and the food is really good, the prices Very reasonable,
the staff friendly and efficient and the House Margarita's Good!
We've tried the Beef Fajitas, Mexican Chilaquiles and the Chori Pollo.
The Luncheon Specials start at $7.00 and go to $8.99, not bad at all for the size
servings they give you. They start you off with free Toasted Tortilla Chips with their house made Salsa. The Salsa has just the right amount of "kick" to it!
If you haven't tried this place your missing out on a great meal.
They are located in the old "Outback Steakhouse" building on Louden Road,
just up the road at Exit 14. We will be back!

I'm originally from Arizona so good Mexican food is hard to find here, I'm glad to say that the food is very good and satisfies the craving from home. The service is very good, the salsa and chips are good! I'm glad it opened in Concord!

FINALLY, a Mexican Restaurant that we can honestly claim as the best we have had since El Maguey's in Kansas City. We've been waiting 7 long years. La Caretta came close, but El Rodeo is better! Fast friendly service, great warm complimentary chips and salsa, excellent drinks, and large portions of hot fresh food. Their lunch specials are special. Loved their chimichangas (chicken and beef) served with tasty rice and beans, sour cream and guacamole. Fantastic. Been back three times this past month.

We lived in Texas for several years and this tastes just like the food we had at the Mexican restaurants there, owned and run by Mexicans! We have eaten there once a week since we discovered the restaurant 2 months ago. It is Mexican food, so there is a lot of cheese, but it is less greasy than other Mexican restaurants. I totally disagree with the statements comparing the food to fast food. The margaritas are fantastic. The atmosphere is a little loud, but fun! All of the food is homemade and consistent every time. Excellent.
