I've eaten here twice and the food was not that good either time...service was worse. Maybe it has changed as I have not been there in over 6 months because there are other good Mexican places that I would rather eat at. Not really much else to say.

Great Mexican food is served at El Charro. The prices are good as is the service. They have an excellent health rating as well.

Wasn't expecting much but delicious Mexican dinner, from the margaritas to the guacamole to chicken enchiladas with real mole... and friendly servers too. If traveling 95, worth stopping here.

We checked out recent reviews and chose the restaurant based on fairly decent reviews. The food was disappointing. Everything was fairly bland. Wait staff was great - food not so great.

My wife and I were here Nov. 11th. Service was quirky. We got our drinks within 10 minutes. It took another twenty minutes for our food order and twenty-five more minutes for the food to arrive.

It doesn't look like much from the outside but this place is amazing. It's connected to a hotel which caught me off guard. But once inside the food is amazing and really reasonably priced. Definitely worth it!
