Good not great food in my opinion. Very popular so many must disagree. I had mixed fajitas and they were generous. Very large chunks of chicken, tough beef and good shrimp. Veggies so so. Sauce was a bit sweet and bland for me. My wife had a house salad and it was very good. Yes they make the tortillas before... More

We ate here on a trip to Laughlin NV. There was six of us, we walked right in and sat right down. Beer was cold, food was great. I had the Chile reyeno and it was tasty. I highly recommend this place.

My wife & I decided to take advantage of weekend specials as El Charro. Went between lunch and dinner, but it was still busy (guess that kind of tells one how popular this eatery is!). Seated right away and server was by our table in a few minutes. Very helpful and informative, explained several of the ingredients on certain dishes.... More

Great food and atmosphere. Some meals are a little over priced. Has a nice bar & a tortilla station. Don't get much fresher than that. Usually pretty crowded. Only detractor is the service can be bad. It seems that everyone is related to the very nice owner & know they won't be fired or disciplined.

While we read the very large menu we were served chips and a green and red salsa. Very good! ...then decided on a Chimichanga without the rice and beans. The waitress came to take our order ... and said do you want to hear the specials which was the ground beef chimi-plate with rice and beans. It was a large... More

When I did a search for Bullhead City I was surprised to see THE #1 restaurant to be El Charro. Driving around yesterday and this morning I think I understand. BH City is a town with no "downtown". It is rather a town, grown in strips up and down a few main roads with every fast food chain and a... More
