I currently live in Tampa, but Cocoa is my hometown. Anytime I set foot in Brevard county it is a MUST that I go to El Charro. Good authentic food!

Just a great place to kick back with friends & family and to enjoy the great atmosphere that's kept folks coming back since 1985. Take some time to browse our menu online.
