“Closest To Mom's Home Cooking!”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

If you're tired of trying most Mexican Food Places, you have to eat at El Charritos Mexican Restaurant. The Best In The West. Clean, Exellent in food, Quiet Atmosphere with New Mexico's beautiful rural scenic picture on the walls. The service is great and very beautiful and friendly waitresses.I have had the pleasure of eating at El Charritos numerous times. Great place to get your Red Chile Fix.

“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

This is a locally run place right across from the Sandia Peak motel. Place was recommended by the motel owner and lived up to its good billing. Food was hot and tasty and plenty of it. Good thing we had a fridge for leftovers. Service was fast and friendly also.

Place closes at 7:30 every night and there is no bar. I don't believe you can BYOB either. Aside from no margaritas with Mexican food, this was a good find and we'd come back anytime.

One can eat fine New Mexican Cuisine at many places. Most are higher priced, and none are any better than here!

“Really great New Mexican food!”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

We found the atmosphere to be good. The food came reasonably quickly and the staff was attentive. The plates were hot, which is really important. I had the green enchiladas and my husband had a carne adovado burrito. Both were very good! The sopapillas were hit and fresh. The prices are good, too! We will definitely be back!
