Consistently good food, reasonable prices, and good service. With all the Mexican food places out there... and the wide variety of quality in those places ... El Rodeo is consistently good. It is almost always busy for dinner - and yet rarely do you have more than a few minutes wait if any. It's not "fancy"- definitely a family environment.... More

We visit El Rodeo at least once a month. Other local Mexican restaurants don't compare on quality and prices. Service is always great and speedy, never had an issue. Be prepared to leave very full or to bring food home...portions are large!

Visited here with my family on a recent trip to the Twin Cities. We stopped here after visiting some shops in the area. The atmosphere was typical of this type of restaurant, which is a good thing. Very open space, you don't feel crowded. The menu offered a really good variety of dish types. I selected the Chori Pollo, which... More

Food was served quickly and hot. Service was very good as well. Staff was great with our children. Fajita quesadilla was excellent and my family enjoyed the chicken fajitas. Margaritas are excellent.

Best margaritas around! Order the house margaritas, no need to get the more expensive ones. Very friendly staff and authentic mexican food. Happy hour from 2 til 8 Sunday through Thursday.

In terms of the food, it is average. I don't think I have ever really loved anything I've ordered, but I don't think I have ever not liked it either. The service is always good and there is a little bar there. Due to lacking other options for Mexican in Maple Grove, we tend to come back. However, if there... More

Chips & salsa were on the table moments after we were seated. Our wait person was polite & respectful. Food was served about 10 minutes after being seated. Wifes Rum... More

Large restaurant. Was seated immediately. The service is very fast. chips brought to the table ASAP, after we ordered our food came out lightening quick. Drinks were good. Food was good. Not much interaction with the wait staff. Asked if I should get chicken or beef and he said what ever you like....no opinion either way!!
