My girlfriend and I were in Rocky Mount recently for a concert at the Harvester Performance Center (Los Lonely Boys...very, very good). We stayed at the nearby Comfort Inn (not so hot, we thought) and El Rodeo was right on the way to the concert venue. Reviews on Trip Advisor were pretty good, so we stopped in to eat dinner....

Our family loves this restaurant. The service is excellent. The chips and margaritas are delicious. My husband gets the Texas Fajitas and the rest of us love the Burrito Fiesta. We tried it as a special and now it's on the regular menu. This is definitely one of the absolute best restaurants we've been to. Can't wait to go again!

Great lunch specials that are served fast and smartly priced. Service is very quick but doesn't make you feel rushed.

This is your typical El-Whatever type mexican restaurant, covering all of the standard dishes. The nice thing about this place is that it is well run, and the serving staff is well orchestrated, friendly and helpful. Service is fast and despite a bit of language barrier at times, the orders are almost always correct. Quality is good, although I do... More

The is one of the best Mexican Restaurants in Rocky Mount, VA. Food is consistently good, service great, and frozen margaritas are great. The burrito supremes are my favorite with cheese covered rice. Yummy!

This is one of two Mexican restaurants in Rocky Mount. I prefer this one as there is a very nice outdoor patio you can sit at and enjoy a cold beer or refreshing margarita! They have daily specials. My only complaint is they serve their salsa in a super tiny (and deep) bowl which makes it very challenging to get... More

A very nice Mexican restaurant. With a very large selection of good food Moderate prices and generous portions (very large, cheap wine carafes). A little loud out front, quieter in back.

This place serves the best Mexican food in the area. Service is quick and prices are reasonable. I have entertained many out of state visitors here and people from all over rave about this place. Definitely worth a visit when Mexican food is your focus. Staff is very friendly as is the owner.
