“Best Mexican in town!”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

I have eaten here many times, and have never been disappointed. Great value here. Love the fresh salsa. Everything is good, but huevos rancheros is my favorite. Clean, fast, inexpensive, great!

“Good food and reasonable”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

I am vegetarian; but they cook their beans in vegetable oil, which gave me more options. I had a chalupa and taco. They were good. Reasonably priced, spacious eating area, friendly service. Popular with locals. Located on the main road in Okmulgee.

“Real Mexican Food - Definitely Worth Stopping By”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

If you are ever in the area or just passing through Okmulgee, I highly recommend you stopping at El Charro for dinner. Too many people order the same types of foods at Mexican restaurants.

I highly recommend trying the Molcajete entree. This is a blend of steak, chicken, vegetables, and a special sauce that is out of this world. The stone bowl it is served in keeps the food very hot. It is 10 times better than a fajita. It is enough food to feed a couple people. The flavor is something that will definitely bring you back.

While you are there, order one of their jumbo margaritas. It is probably the best margarita I have had. Be sure to leave plenty of time to drink it because it is huge.
