“Good Food & Friendly Service”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have stayed a number of times at the nearby Fairfield Inn, and always return to eat at El Rodeo. The location is convenient with easy parking, the food is very good and reasonably priced, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Our drinks have always been good sized and not mostly ice like at many places. Highly recommended!

“Good food and plenty of it.”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Ate here tonight with my wife and found the place to be very good. We were a bit concerned when the place was so quiet but we need not have worried. We were seated very quickly and our friendly server made us welcome from the off. The chips and salsa were served quickly as we're our drinks. The fruit smoothly was rather more icy than expected but tasty one the less and he beer , a blue moon, was fine too. Our main meals, a chicken and crab etc with rice and a Texan fajitas were enormous as well as being well cooked and very tasty. The menu was huge with something for everyone and at a good price too, less than $40 for two of us. I would certainly recommend this place if you are looking for a Mexican meal in the area.

“Delicious Meal & Great Service!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites, very close to the restaurant. The food was so delicious we decided to dine there both nights of our stay. We love Mexican, and this is on our top of our list to visit the next time we visit the area. We highly recommend.

“Authentic Mexican Food - Right off I-81 north of Roanoke, VA”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Country Inn and Suites (directly behind El Rodeo) and had dinner at the restaurant. We were impressed with the cleanliness, friendliness, and authenticity of the food - it was delicious and you really could tell the difference (between El Rodeo and chain Mexican restaurants). The waiters and staff spoke Spanish and English and we enjoyed learning some Spanish during our dining experience. The property and building were very well maintained and they also have outdoor dining.

Would highly recommend this stop if you are hungry and traveling north on I-81 near Roanoke, VA. Easy off and on to the highway.
