As three guys from Los Angeles, we approached a Mexican restaurant in Michigan with some trepidation. What a pleasant surprise this place was! First rate enchiladas, tacos and margaritas satisfied these Southern Californians.

El Rodeo is an average Mexican restaurant. No big surprizes, nothing's really good or really bad. Service is good, prices are what you would expect. They do serve giant margaritas.

Atmosphere and food were great. Located in a small strip mall just outside the towns major mall. Wait staff was attentive and great all around. Portions were completely on point with Mexican fare. Great place and I would definitely go back.

The food was very tasty. It was very quick to come to the table. The waiter was very nice despite his limited English. He managed to still understand what we wanted. Chips and salsa were delicious!

Thank Rebecca M
