We are from Michigan visiting friends who moved down here 30 years ago. Have had a variety of Mexican food this trip and this was considered good. We had fish tacos and they were good, not the best we have eaten but still good. It was busy in the middle of the week and was full of the locals. We... More

Steak, potatoes, onions, tomatoes in green chile with rice & beans. Wife had tamale combination which she proclaimed was pretty good. Many locals on hand enjoying their food,... More

We apologize that you did not have a nice experience. Our beef enchiladas are more expensive than the cheese. We did issue you a full refund for your inconvenience. More

We have tried many Mexican restaurants in Yuma but El Charro is the very best!! Very authentic and delicious. The servings are huge. The salsa is good and the service is always friendly and helpful. They get very busy but seem to get the food out efficiently. Love this place!

First let me say that as a gal from the northeast I'm pretty fussy about my fish and had never had a fish taco but my friend who lives here told me that these were the best ones around. She was right. The fish was fresh and it was evident that the fry oil was clean. The salsa had lots... More

I have eaten at El Charro most of my life. The food is consistently great and the servers are friendly. If I had one complaint, it would be the noise. El Charro is located in an old house and it is very noisy. Don't let that deter you though, they have awesome food and great margaritas!!!

On a visit to Yuma, we stopped to have lunch on the way out of town & enjoyed a great lunch. Food was great & so was the service.

my parents used to take our family here when we were little. Of course we grew up and went our separate ways, but our brother's passing away brought us all to Yuma and back to El Charro. Went last night night with siblings and cousin and had not only a great meal, but conversations of fond memories. The staff made... More
