Good news, the location is very convenient. Bad news, the food is sub-par. To begin with, one of the reasons I visit Mexican restaurants is for the chips and salsa. The chips at El Rodeo are average at best, but the salsa is terrible. My...More

Ate there recently, good but not great Mexican but it is very close to campus. The corn tortillas were good, loved the chicken, and a great beer selection. This is a good place for a sit down meal, it's not the best Mexican you will...More

El Rodeo has great food. It has a great theme inside. Waiters are very friendly and a very clean place...I judge a restaurant by the bathrooms...IF they aren't clean, neither is their kitchen (which we don't see)

Not California Mexican but not as bad as I thought it might be. Watery salsa, decent chips, great assortment of veggies in the veggie fajitas, an abomination passed off as guacamole, flaccid lettuce/tomatoes. All in all, decent but I wouldn't say delicious but it was...More
