This is actually going to be 2 reviews in 1 since we visited here twice recently. Today I had the shrimp chimichanga, the first I have ever had anywhere, and it was sooooo goooood. Packed with shrimp. My wife had the Camarones el Diablo that was a bunch of shrimp floating in a sea of spicy tomato sauce. So spicy... More

I grew up in Prescott in the 60's & 70's. El Charro has always been there. It was never my favorite Mexican food place but I end up giving it another try. I have been here 3 times in the past year. Disappointed each time. The service was not very good the 1st & 2nd time. This last time the... More

The sign said authentic Mexican but that is really a stretch. The place had all the charm of a chain fast food Mexican restaurant. I had fish tacos which were edible but very dry. I've been ordering fish tacos for 20 years and these were the least best I've ever had. On the up side my waitress was excellent and... More

Four of us had lunch the day after New Years day. The service was friendly and cheerful. The food was only fair. The Salsa was more of a spicy sauce with no chopped ingredients. The meals were edible but not memorable. Prices are about average for similar restaurants in the area. It' s not bad, but you can do better... More

Chimi's soggy - ground beef tasteless. Chips stale & salsa hot but lacked spice. Margaritas were good though. Don't confuse this one with the one in Tucson which is excellent!

The food was just ok at best. Rice that came with the fajitas tasted like water mush and at the end of the meal a hair was found in the rice :/ The sour cream also resembled cottage cheese more than sour cream.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. It's very small so the wait to get a table was not very fast but we met another couple while waiting for a table and so we all four sat together to save tables for others waiting. We just ordered an appetizer to share since that is all we went in there... More

We've been meaning to try this place for awhile. Their salsa here is very good. I had a couple of tacos that unfortunately were served in bland grocery store style hard shells. The ground beef taco was the better than the the shredded beef version. My wife had a Mexican style rice soup, that also was underwhelming. The soup arrived... More

El Charro has something for Mexican food lovers as well as those who just want a burger and a beer. The tortilla soup is a meal in itself. Generous portions, reasonable prices, friendly service, it makes you feel like a home away from home and you don't have to do the dishes!
