“Authentic Mexican dining!”
Review of El Charro

El Charro
Ranked #4 of 28 Restaurants in Farmington
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 August 2017

El Charro has become one of my favorite restaurants in the entire Twin Cities area. Recently spent 10 days in town for the Washington Cty & Dakota Cty fairs. Ended up eating at El Charro 5 times and probably would have ate there a couple more times but due to my schedule I could not fit it in. It's hard to say what the best thing on the menu is because I always try something different and each dish is excellent. Love the chips & salsa ahead of the meal too. The service is top notch with all the staff being very friendly and upbeat.

This place has great nightly deals including tacos and margaritas; but what you might not expect is how fabulous the seafood is! There are a wide variety of dishes like seafood chimis with a decadent white cheese sauce. For the lighter fare, there are platters of shrimp on rice and fixings. We love eating here and often come when we have a seafood craving!!

We went to El Charro for lunch today on the recommendation of our neighbor-friends. What a wonderful treat it was. Be sure to go hungry. El Charro is owned-operated by a local family and really does Mexican food right! Our server, Carlos/Charlie, was terrific and had great recommendations for us. We had the Molcajete Guadalajara which was plenty for 2-3 people to share (and take home extras) and there are two other variants of the Guadalajara for us to try in the near future. The bar has a decent variety of tap/bottle beers, wine and, of course, margaritas. Plus, they have a pleasant-looking patio for summer use (alas, too cold and windy today to be eating outside). This place is definitely worth trying out if you like authentic, family-style Mexican fare.

We dine at El Charro regularly and are always very pleased with the food. It tastes great and the prices are really reasonable. Plus the staff is wonderful. They make you feel like family.

The only suggestion I would have for improvement would be for the kitchen & servers to work on the timing of the delivery of the meals to the table. Sometimes when we have a group, there's one or two people waiting several minutes longer for their meal than the rest of the group. But other than that, everything is absolutely fabulous! I highly recommend this place!
