If you want great Mexican food within a 100 miles this is the place to go! When a Mexican restaurant stuffed peppers and carnitas on the menu then you know it's authentic. Service is outstanding and fast

This is a nice little Mexican restaurant. I had the California burrito and it was great, the water is not very pleasant. The owners may want to invest in a water filtration system. Otherwise the service was quick and the food was good.

We eat here at least once a week. All the guys know me a "Amigo" and we always get good service. They go out of their way to accommodate their customers and the food is excellent! Check out their new menu items!

True awesome Mexican food! Having lived in southern CA and TX the food here is awesome. They have many items on their menu many Mexican places don't have which is awesome. You won't go away hungry.

First time visiting El Charro in West Plains. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter was very nice and patient with all our questions. Food was ordered and it was wonderful! Our granddaughter ordered something very small but decided the food on our plates looked yummy and she was all for sharing. :) It was clean and well kept..... More

We were visiting family in West Plains and wanted to have some Mexican food, and decided to try this place. It wasn't very busy, so we were a little afraid...but everything was delicious. The queso dip and salsa with chips were very good, as was the food we ordered. Definitely recommend.

Me and my wife enjoy going to El Charro's for years because it's the only decent Mexican restaurant around the surrounding area. Yesterday, changed the way I look at this franchise as a whole. We were escorted to a table with her mother in-law, not five minutes later the cashier came up to our table to debate about a receipt... More

All Mexican waiters that seem to have a hard time with English but aside from that it is very good authentic (I think) Mexican food. Good value and great food for the money. Huge variety! It will take you an hour to read the menu!
