Have always had a good meal and good service here. I would not call it authentic but I would call it very good Mexican food. I have never had a bad meal here.

We went here as a celebration after a friend's baptism. It was a large group, so I naturally expected slower service. The orders were taken, and food quickly prepared. After the food was served, however, the servers seemed to disappear. As good as the food was, I probably won't be back, since there are many other equally good Mexican food... More

El Rodeo is a unique restaurant. If you want super friendly service, this may not be the place for you, but our experience has been that the servers are efficient and helpful. And there's something about the food that we LOVE! I always Orzo con Pollo and my husband always get the Hot & Spicy Burrito (which he claims isn't... More

Nothing fancy or luxurious but the service was speedy and friendly and the food was good. They honored a discount for our hotel.

What can I say, until they refused to honor our coupons a couple times this was our family go to place. But they really blew it when they shrunk certain portions... It took no time to find there's a much better place for Mexican in Avon. Sorry we haven't returned in quite awhile

The place looks great with decorations, fun exciting paint, and so much... More

The first thing the waiter did was to say we hadn't been in for a while and to thank us for coming back. The second thing, he let us know what the specials were for the day. We both ordered the special (chicken fajita) and it tasted great! The waiter was very pleasant and we will definitely go back

Ordered the shrimp taco salad. There was a good number of shrimp but under the top layer of lettuce, everything was soggy and there was a 1/2 inch of soupy stuff in the tortilla bowl. Meal was really not edible except for the shrimp. The staff apologized and offered a coupon for our next visit. My husband's taquito meal was... More
