This is a hopping place. Super busy for lunch and dinner. I always get the carnitas tacos. Only once has the meat been over cooked. Great flavor and super friendly staff.

El Charro offers a wide range of traditional Mexican dishes in a warm and friendly environment. Excellent chile relleno and fish tacos. Great chips and salsa. Plenty of parking and easy access off Hwy 12 Farmers Lane exit.

My family and I stopped on our way through. We had the nachos for an appetizer and for lunch the fish tacos and steak tacos. It was all amazing.

An excellent Menu. Great service. Good size portions and you are treated like family everytime you enter or leave. There are hugs and lots of warmth. After the 3rd time the waitress remembered what my wife and I ordered the last time we were in....More
