Service was good, white queso was delicious...salsa could have been a bit more spicy but still very tasty! We will definitely be frequent customers at this place!

I have visited El Rodeo several times and I have never had a bad experience. Service is quick and prices are reasonable. The Margaritas will test your limits. Plenty of other beverage choices to also choose from. I would say it is Authentic Mexican food....with American FDA regulations. I will return.

As three guys from Los Angeles, we approached a Mexican restaurant in Michigan with some trepidation. What a pleasant surprise this place was! First rate enchiladas, tacos and margaritas satisfied these Southern Californians.

El Rodeo is an average Mexican restaurant. No big surprizes, nothing's really good or really bad. Service is good, prices are what you would expect. They do serve giant margaritas.

Atmosphere and food were great. Located in a small strip mall just outside the towns major mall. Wait staff was attentive and great all around. Portions were completely on point with Mexican fare. Great place and I would definitely go back.
