Always friendly staff. Traditional Mexican food and they will make any alterations to your meal if you ask. One of our guests was on a special diet and every adaptation he asked for to the menu was happily accommodated.

It's not really Tex-Mex, it is closer to real Mexican food than so many of the chain restaurants. It is not expensive and the decor is low-key, but they serve you well. We have been going here for a couple years and really love it and the food. They make me a great margarita each time and are very welcoming.... More

El Charo raised the price of the margaritas and now serve them in beer mugs, which they claim are larger. The clay mugs have No class I do not like the Change and I did not like my last visit; I was attacked by flies, dozens of them. I complained no less than 4 times and they just laughed it... More

We eat here at least twice monthly, usually after church on Sunday. My family is large, 17 including children, and they always make us feel welcomed and wanted, when we come in. The food is average Mexican fare. Good portions. OK taste. Not spicy or hot. Sometimes it is better than it is at other times. Has to be a... More

Following a long and hard day of work, I don't want to take a gamble on nourishment. After a good, yummy first experience at El Charro, Okmulgee, my coworkers and I now usually eat dinner there every night when we are on projects near Okmulgee. It is very close to the Best Western Plus, Okmulgee, which makes it that much... More

A stop of convienence turned out to be heavenly casual Mexican dining. Our party of 5 thoroughly enjoyed dinner. We had Chicken Burrito, Shrimp TacoSalad, tacos, & Taco Salad. Thought our menfolk were a bit adventurous ordering shrimp in a Mexican restaurant but they raved about portion size and how tasty it was. Decor was typical nothing upscale but when... More

Good food for a Mexican Chain restaurant. Its nothing special but the serving portions are enough to fill you up. I like the chips and salsa.

Came to Okmulgee to visit family. Very soon after New Years everyone seemed to be "stir crazy" to go somewhere even though it was only 8 degrees outside. So we tried El Charro. My brother had a margarita....looked a little green to me but he said it was good. My sister in law had a Long Island tea... I think... More
