We pulled in Johnson City about 8:30pm and was pleased to see ElCharro still open. Atmosphere is a little iffy but the food was good and plenty of it. Pastor look really good, crispy taco where crispy. I had the cheese enchiladas very tasty. Enjoy

Every visit to Charro is extremely satisfying. All the food is excellent, reasonably priced, and well served. We go often.
