The sort of fare you would get from beginning home ec students. Not spicy or tasty.

“El Rodeo is my favorite Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2009

I live in North Olmsted and there are a number of good Mexican restaurants in the area. This one is outstanding. The food is fresh, well seasoned, plentiful and inexpensive. I either eat at the restaurant or do a take-out once a week. I couldn't be happier with the quality of the food. Some Mexican restaurants have greasy foods that taste great but chew up the lining of the stomach. El Rodeo's food is never greasy and has loads of flavor. The home made salsa is fantastic and the tortilla chips are made that day. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“worst mexican in town”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2008

We should have known as soon as we walked in the door on a Saturday during prime dinner time and there were only a few other people there this was not a good choice. The painted chairs give this restaurant a cheesy, childish look, the pitchers of margaritas were obviously watered down (and expensive) and 5 people in our party ordered different things off the menu and it all looked like slop on the plates. I had a Mexican pizza that was a joke, there was a small, thin tortilla shell underneath a mess of watery refried beans with a few shreds of cheese in between. There are other Mexican restaurants in the area that far surpass this place, even Taco Bell is a better value. We had two pitchers of margaritas that were overpriced and full of ice cubes with little flavor or alcohol. This is one of the worst places we've ever eaten at and will never go back.
