Our family of 5 was looking for dinner our first night in town. We found El Charo Azul to be a good alternative to other chain restaurants.

A friend and I got together to catch up here and it worked out great. As soon as we sat down our waiter brought us our drink and some chips and salsa. We told him we wanted to order for awhile before we ordered. He let us visit checking in with us every once in awhile. Did not feel rushed... More

Only cheese and lettuce on tacos-no... More

This is your typical Mexican restaurant. All the same dishes as every other Mexican place. However, the prices were very reasonable, the service was good, and there was a nice atmosphere for both families and guys after work.

Most people don't know but Dos Amigos on the strip is owned and operated by the son of the owner of El Charco Azul. So you'll experience a lot of the same eager friendly service and great tasting food from both.
