When I am in the area this is the place we always dine at. The food is authentic, very tasty and lots of selections. They also serve Ice cold beer. The owners and the employees are super friendly. Great place to eat.

I love going to El Rodeo with a friend or by myself. The food is always tasty and the service is top notch. I particularly like that I can feel comfortable eating there alone and I am given just as much attention and great service as a group of people that come to eat there.

The chips and salsa bar is about the best thing here, try mixing half of the mild and half the fire in my opinion it has the best taste, got the carne asada and it was pretty dang thin and bland, tortillas were good.

The food was delicious and the service was good. The salsa bar has outstanding salsa. In the green salsa, there is lots of avacado.

We used to frequent El Rodeo while living in the area. It was good food served in a taqueria style restaurant by very friendly people. This is definitely NOT your stylized, Americanized Mexican food. This is very similar to the food I eat when in Mexic each year. The prices are reasonable, the food plentiful and tasty. The décor is... More

I enjoy going here. Dont go if you are expecting a waiter dodling over you. This is more a taqueria than anything else. I have eaten here many times and always got what i expected. I particularly like the traditional open tacos with carne asada. You can ask them to spice them up or get some cups at the salsa... More

Originally we ate at the El Rodeo in Lodi and it was delicious! As soon as the one in Galt opened, we began going there. The most authentic Mexican food in Galt, by far. My husband was born in Mexico and this is where he likes to eat. He's had many of their offerings, but I normally stick with a... More

California has its abundance of excellent Mexican food, in every city you can find one restaurant that stands above the rest. In little ol Galt, El Rodeo is the place. The fresh salsa bar and the tv in the corner blaring Mexican soap operas highlights the great food and excellent beer selection.
