I ordered number 32 the chili relleno combination, my husband had the chimichanga, and my son had the cheese and bean quesadilla. I also ordered taquitos and a guacamole... More

I have tried a lot of Mexican restaurants in the city but El Charro remains my favorite. Food is abundant(especially the free chips and salsa), flavorful, and filling. Lunch specials are a... More

I had the chori-pollo and it was delicious. Grilled chorizo, chicken and cheese, with rice and beans. Perhaps it was a bit much for lunch because now I need a nap! Excellent waiter, too. I'll be back.
