When you drive by a Mexican restaurant when it's 115 degrees outside and the parking lot is full, well you stop. Great food, great taste, good prices. Probably the best Mexican restaurant in Yuma.

El Charro offers what may be Yuma's best Mexican food. The rellenos, tacos and other Mexican standards were all prepared well and tasted great. Friendly, popular place; highly recommended.

Yummy green chili burrito with a saddle. The cheese crisp is an excellent appetizer to share with the table or for a meal.

Thank you, Badgleyhm we enjoy hearing from our customers especially when they love our green chile saddles. Our famous saddles started out in 1949 and have been a hit since then. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review.
