My wife and I are new to the area and were in the mood for some good mexican food. Checked out El Charro and we were not dissapointed. The chips and sala (including the blue cheec/garlic dip) were phenomenal and the wait staff was polite and very fast. Before I really got into my margarita the food had arrived. The sampler plate was outstanding! Noticed the huge amount of families presentt so it's a great place to bring the kids. I can't wait to go back when the weather is nice and we are able to eat outside on the deck.

Excellent Mexican food! I usually head into the cantina, where the waitresses are super friendly. The blue cheese/garlic dip (that comes with the free chips, salsa, and hot sauce) is phenomenal! We usually have to get a dish per person! The chicken enchilada sauce is very tasty, and there is a hefty serving of chicken in the enchiladas. The taco sauve is very good as well, with beef that is very tender (not ground, shredded). The seafood chimichanga is very crisp and the seafood isn't overcooked as it can be in these types of dishes. El Charro can get very crowded on weekends, but you can usually find a seat on the patio or cantina quite easily. If you're a newbie with a big appetite, I suggest the dinner sampler. The only menu item to stay away from is the flautas - a little overcooked.

We were here for dinner, and were treated to a solid meal. In addition to the salsa served with the chips, they serve a side of cheese spread that is quite tasty. The sampler platter was actually cheaper than a regular 2 item combo, and it came with 2 plates full of food. We would definately return.
