Great Mexican food, and plenty of it! Average prices for this type of restaurant. We would dine there again . =)

I returned to El Charrito because the food was good and reasonable. Both times I was impressed with the level of service. The waiter had a great attitude, the food was very good and the prices were very affordable.

We're going with four. The food was good, not the best Mexican we've had but tasty nonetheless. Staff was very friendly. The food was a little slow, especially given that it 7:30 and few tables were occupied.

We make certain we stop for dinner when traveling between Utah and Oregon. The chips and salsa are good and served quickly. Best chilie rellano I've had.

I liked it, and my wife, who is a Mexican cuisine expert, said she was very impressed. It's Round Up week here, so we are trying out restaurant and for this little cow town, there are quite a few quite decent eating places.
