Great food, good service. The fresh guacamole was delicious and there's a nice selection of margaritas!

2 people no drinks $24.50. Fish tacos 3 salad rice. Very good took 2 home. Beef fajita nachos. Excellent. Took 1/2 home. I need to learn to wear a bib when having nachos and salsa. The place was packed on a Thursday night. But quick service.

We went in again, thought maybe first time was an off day! NOT!! Waited over 10 minutes to place order. We were just leaving as waitress popped in. Ordered shrimp chimachonga with NO lettuce or tomatoes. I cannot digest any uncooked vegetables. Then she brought food after 10 more minutes, and yup! Lettuce and tomatoes on it. Then wanted to...

It's Tuesday. 12:45. Half full. Chips & salsas arrive. Drinks ordered. Chips half eaten before drinks delivered. Chips all gone before staff returns to take order. We were... More

I always feel good when I leave this place, and not just because of the good food. These people are so friendly and eager to please, it feels almost as comfortable as home. The food is traditional Mexican served promptly, at the right temperature, and presented in an attractive way. Portions are larger than necessary, but not crazy. Prices are... More

Nice local Mexican spot in Chesapeake. Pretty standard fare with tacos, burritos, enchalidas, fajitas, etc. But, the Queso...oh, the Queso! Very rich and creamy...of the white variety and worthy of five stars in my opinion. Went with the family...seven total including three little guys. Everyone enjoyed their meals including the 18 month old who seemed to absorb the Queso! We... More

From the friendly, warm greeting to the end of a great meal, El Gran Rodeo is a great place to visit. My wife and I love going there for lunch or dinner. Chips are quickly brought to our table and the meal is served hot and delicious. For a taste of Mexico, you can't go wrong here. Highly recommend.
