My wife & I decided to take advantage of weekend specials as El Charro. Went between lunch and dinner, but it was still busy (guess that kind of tells one how popular this eatery is!). Seated right away and server was by our table in a few minutes. Very helpful and informative, explained several of the ingredients on certain dishes.... More

Great food and atmosphere. Some meals are a little over priced. Has a nice bar & a tortilla station. Don't get much fresher than that. Usually pretty crowded. Only detractor is the service can be bad. It seems that everyone is related to the very nice owner & know they won't be fired or disciplined.

While we read the very large menu we were served chips and a green and red salsa. Very good! ...then decided on a Chimichanga without the rice and beans. The waitress came to take our order ... and said do you want to hear the specials which was the ground beef chimi-plate with rice and beans. It was a large... More

When I did a search for Bullhead City I was surprised to see THE #1 restaurant to be El Charro. Driving around yesterday and this morning I think I understand. BH City is a town with no "downtown". It is rather a town, grown in strips up and down a few main roads with every fast food chain and a... More

We started out with their chips and salsa. We both thought that the chips were some of the best we've ever had and that's saying something. The salsas were good, too. Now is where the divergence starts. I ordered the daily special special, street tacos. There were 3 and each had a different topping - chicken, carnitas and steak. It... More
