My parents, son and I went to El Rodeo for dinner. The entire dinner was a disappointment compared to previous visits. Chips were green, red, and natural corn. They appeared to be out of a bag as compared to fresh and hot in the past....More

Typical Mexican Food. Family owned. Great service. Awesome Margaritas and Amazing Salsa! They have an outdoor patio that is festive, but kind of heavy traffic. They also have a lunch buffet - I personally have not had it.

The service is always good. Prompt. The food is average, but tastes decent. The décor is cool. I visit a handful of times a year. If you are looking for authentic Mexican..head to the border..but it is way better and nothing like Chi Chi's..
