This has become my families favorite Mexican restaurant. Food and the atmosphere are fantastic. However if you plan I'm going call ahead and get your name added to the list. We waited over an hour and a half one time trying to get a seat. Now we call ahead and walk right in. Great food

Then El Charros of Macomb is the place to go! We visit there frequently as well as order carry out. Every time we order, the botanas are a must! Great food and great atmosphere!

Went here because everyone claimed it was good. It was so bad my husband and I did not eat either of our meals nor did we take it home. The guacamole wasn't good for an appetizer either. Will not go here or recommend this place to anyone! They put a brown "gravy" sauce on everything- not Mexican food 👎🏻

This is the total Mexican food experience. El Charro (Utica Michigan ) has been known around this area for years. The newer Macomb location matches it's Little brother. in every way. You won't be disappointed.

They have a large menu with many options. My husband loves the tacos. I have enjoyed all types of meals because the food is flavorful, pleasant servers, awesome margaritas.

It's always a treat to reward yourself with a trip to the place with the best guacamole! Pleasant staff and atmosphere add to the enjoyment.

Puffy tacos are really good. I had the taco salad this last time and that was also good. Nice atmosphere and the service was good.

Been going to El Charros back in the 70s in Fraser and still go frequently to this one in Macomb. Best Taco around = Puffy tacos!!! Great service & specials all the time. My wife always gets the chile rellenos. Never disappointed. Tops on my list for any restaurant!
