I stopped in alone for a quick bite. I was greated and seated quickly. Food was very tasty and served attractively. I frequently eat tostadas, but this was the prettiest one I’ve ever seen. If only I lived closer, I’d be back for another run at their menu.

I go come here often and have for many years. It is one of the best places to eat in Cheney-- small college town. The portions are large and we often take home food for another meal. While it can be fairly crowded at noon, you might want to go before the major rush--like at 11 or at 1. Very... More

El Rodeo is family owned and run. This is our go to when we want to eat out in Cheney. Delicious and authentic food and a friendly attentive waitstaff. Highly recommend if you love Mexican food at a good price.

The food here was VERY good with a huge traditional menu. I think I communicated fairly well with our server when I said "no trego" (no wheat) although there may have been some in the enchilada sauce. Really busy place, and friendly folks.

We consider ourselves experts in this area (for gringos) and loved this place. Great service, very generous portions and a top notch margarita. The salsa was perfect, and for me the true tell of any Mexican place- great beans. We split a plate and it was still plenty.

Delicious Mexican food and gives you the option of different drink sizes for margaritas. They have a great fishbowl margarita. Usually quick service

My wife and I ate here last night and as always the service was on point, food was awesome and prices were fair. We split a large rodeo special and it was more than enough for 2 people. Totally worth it.

Delicious meals and drinks for a reasonable price. The pico de gallo was fresh & flavorful. The portions were generous.

Staff was very friendly and helpful with questions on the menu! Lots of choices and for me---a very hard decision! The food was warm, great taste and too much to have desert afterwards! Staff kept our drinks full and asked if we needed anything else! I would recommend it and will definitely go again!
