The menu is broad, the food is tasty and is served very quickly after the order is placed. Until it arrives, you can munch on chips and salsa which is gleefully placed on your table by an efficient staff. The margaritas are the best.

Always good, always clean! Love tree guacamole and margaritas. Mmmmm! It's in Walmart parking lot. So if your hungry before going into walmart and buying a bunch of crap you don't need, stop here first to grab a bite. Mmmmmm!

Had a very nice lunch combo at a Mexican Restaurant that was fast and friendly. The portions was just right and I found myself devouring the plate. I was pleasantly fulfilled.

Have eaten here on a number of occasions, food is always good, sometimes outstanding. Arrived around 7pm on Friday night, not too busy. Took a bit to have order taken by waiter but food was out quickly. Wait staff a bit slow to check on you. Quite often requested items like hot sauce or guacamole never arrive without an additional...

I was leaving the Branson area and needed to feed my boys. I pulled off Highway 65 at Ozark, because there were several choices for fast food, and I thought we might see a suitable restaurant. We took a chance on El Charro(what's "charo"?) and we ordered three different items and scarfed up every bite. From the chips and salsa... More

Not many dining on a Monday afternoon. Food was fair, but service not good. Had to wait quite awhile for ticket and gave cash. When change was brought to table, it was $20 short. There was a slight apology when brought to their attention. We won't be returning.

El Charo Mexican Restaurant has good Mexican cusine. I prefer their Margaritas best of all. I enjoy sitting out on the patio for outdoor eating in good weather. Their location is very handy and the servers are very friendly and attentive. The cost of the food is moderate.

The food we chose this time was rather flavorless. The salsa was good, but the burrito did not have much flavor. We won't go again.
