I ordered lunch online and had it delivered; I have to say, I'm happy with my experience! They have a great menu, nice delivery guy, and everything arrived as ordered and specified. I asked for delivery to be around 12:15PM and it arrived at 12:30PM, which is not bad - it wasn't a day where time was pressing. I ordered... More

We had dinner there for our anniversary. They were very busy so we had a table in the bar area. It wasn't noisy like I thought it would be. The food was very good and the server was helpful with the menu. We had enchiladas and taquitos. Very yummy and large portions. They brought us fried ice cream with a... More

Walked over for dinner and sat in the bar area. Started with margaritas and they were very good. I had the tacos dorados. They were very flavorful and filling. My spouse had a shrimp a la Diabla dinner which was tasty and spiced just right. Next time we will try to get there during happy hour.

Despite what others may say, if you've lived in Arizona all your life, you'll find this at the front of the class in good, tasty Mexican food. The salsa is the perfect puree with a slightly spicy, sweet flavor that most anyone can eat. The portions are usually enough to split and the options among sides is better than average.... More

This place has fantastic, authentic Mexican food. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nice menu choices and so good. The Prickly Pear margarita was absolutely yummy. We love this place.

Went there for lunch. The drinks were good, food was excellent and Rudy's service was outstanding. He did everything for us fast and efficient. Could not possibly be any better. Our shrimp chimi's were full of shrimp; our plates were full and good looking. Excellent presentation. Rudy kept the chips and salsa coming. We had a great time and enjoyed... More

This is actually going to be 2 reviews in 1 since we visited here twice recently. Today I had the shrimp chimichanga, the first I have ever had anywhere, and it was sooooo goooood. Packed with shrimp. My wife had the Camarones el Diablo that was a bunch of shrimp floating in a sea of spicy tomato sauce. So spicy... More

I grew up in Prescott in the 60's & 70's. El Charro has always been there. It was never my favorite Mexican food place but I end up giving it another try. I have been here 3 times in the past year. Disappointed each time. The service was not very good the 1st & 2nd time. This last time the... More

The sign said authentic Mexican but that is really a stretch. The place had all the charm of a chain fast food Mexican restaurant. I had fish tacos which were edible but very dry. I've been ordering fish tacos for 20 years and these were the least best I've ever had. On the up side my waitress was excellent and... More

Four of us had lunch the day after New Years day. The service was friendly and cheerful. The food was only fair. The Salsa was more of a spicy sauce with no chopped ingredients. The meals were edible but not memorable. Prices are about average for similar restaurants in the area. It' s not bad, but you can do better... More
