It has been many years since I last visited El Charro's. They are located on the edge of Cocoa Village. Most of their parking can be found behind the restaurant. We visited on a Friday night about 5:30pm. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. It slowly filled up as the evening went on. We were seated right away... More

A friend and I that normally eat at the Mexican restaurant in our town decided to try this Mexican restaurant in the next town over. Both of us at the same time said wow as we took our first bites! The beans and rice were terrific with plenty of flavor without setting the mouth on fire and were perfect. The... More

I have been coming here since high school and it has been a couple years since visiting. Last weekend was only memorable due to the lack of taste. I tried ordering the margarita and was told by the server that they have flavored ones. I said I wanted a regular one and was told that they dont serve those as... More

We stopped in near closing and concentrated on the Mexican fare although they also offer Cuban food. The service was adequate. The atmosphere was not intimate and stereotypically garish. The food ranged from very good (guacamole and shrimp tacos) to poor (refried beans). There is no reason to eat here over any other local Mexican restaurant.

Very nicely decorated, made you feel like really in Mexico. Excellent food. If you like margaritas, get the "Cadillac".

Nice quaint Mexican restaurant. I like the colorful decor. The service is very good and so is the food. You cannot leave hungry. Also has a nice little bar area. Seating is roomy and tables are not on top of each other so the noise level and navigation isn't an issue when trying to have a conversation. My mom loved... More

New menu items since my last visit! Now they offer some wonderful Cuban dishes! Everthing we had was great. The sangria was wonderful. I especially enjoyed my black beans, rice & maduros!

Just a great place to kick back with friends & family and to enjoy the great atmosphere that's kept folks coming back since 1985. Take some time to browse our menu online.

If you're planning a nite out or looking for something "to go", call ahead and we'll have it "Ready-to-Roll" when you arrive.
