I had been several years since eating here. Maybe 10? When the kids were young this was a favorite of ours, usually after church type thing. The quality has SUFFERED greatly. The chips are stale and salt less. Thick, not thin. Queso is like gel, with no real cheese taste. The rice was dry and very little taste. Beans were... More

Other reviews already covered "not fancy". Nuff said about that. I'm always a little thankful when the chips and salsa aren't great cuz it ruins my appetite for the meal. I like my chips thin and fresh. There are heavy. The complementary yellow cheese sauce is tasteless but the salsa is good. Traded my tea for diet Pepsi cuz it... More

Truth to say, when entering the restaurant it doesn't look very inviting, BUT, once settled down and nibbling on nachos and salsa you realise you are in a genuine, no frills Mexican restaurant, and not one geared to more American fare. My husband had Rosario's platter and I had Carne Cuisada, both excellent dishes, freshly cooked and ideal for a... More

I miss calculated the traffic leaving us to find food and lodging in Gutherie Oklahoma. We stumbled across ElRodeo and it was well worth the effort. Great food and service.

We had looked on trip advisor to find restaurants in the Guthrie Oklahoma area. Our options for this exit were limited to generic fast food so we thought we would try the local Mexican restaurant. It definitely does not look like much from the outside. It was approximately 6 PM on a Saturday night. There weren't very many people inside,... More

We stopped for a quick lunch, and were pondering the regular fast food chains when we saw the sign for El Rodeo. It is tucked in behind the Shell station. We were traveling with our dog, so needed to either carry out or sit at an outdoor table. They had a nice wooden bench in a shaded area near the... More

We ate at El Rodeo several years ago and it was good. We tried it again in 2010 and 2014 - Terrible. It has a dirty feeling atmosphere, the chips were stale, queso had no flavor, and all of the entrees tasted the same - bland and no seasoning. Will not return until we hear feedback that it has returned... More

Food OK, margarita was barely drinkable. Had to wait to pay - a while. Mediocre experience which was unfortunate because we were told by locals that it was a great place. If that's a great place, I must be really spoiled! Won't go back.
