Delicious food, prompt, fast service, and excellent prices. A family of six, 3 adults, 3 kids eat apps, dinner abd dessert, just about 50.00. And they have lunch specials 7 days a week. Love coming here after church :)

We dined at El Gran Charro because our neighbor highly recommended it to us. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. Food was great, I had fish tacos and wife had Carne Asada, the atmosphere was warm, and staff was pleasant.

We have since returned and not had a bad meal. Prices are very resonable and children's menu covers most tastes. I would recommend this great place for family and couples.

The food is good but not great, the service is great, the restaurant is clean, and the food comes out very fast.

I always get the same thing at a Mexican restaurant -- a chili relleno. The ones here are okay. What I don't like is that they don't clean the pepper first. The seeds are no big deal, but it just shows lack of attention to detail. My other complaint is that the guacamole is not as good as most other area Mexican restaurants; it's lacking in flavor, but does seem fresh.

The chips are always fresh, the people are always nice. It is definitely worth a return trip, just don't expect that this will be the best food ever.

We live within 15 minutes of this place and frequently eat here. The fish tacos are very good as are the chimichangas and most everything else. The queso dip is great! If you are paying with a card make sure you tip with cash. Somehow the staff are altering the written tips and bumping the amount up by anything from pennies to a buck or more at times. We have seen this more frequently at other restaurants over the past 2 years.
