This is the best "go-once-a-week" kinda place ever!!! – This place has slowly grown on us. We have chosen El Charro for family birthday parties because they 1.) have great food, and 2.) have tables and booths large enough to accommodate large families. ..we have 8 kids, so we are there quite a bit. My 16 year old daughter recently went to homecomeing...where do you suppose she wanted to go for dinner in her formal dress? Yep, El Charro. My husband and I like to go on our once a week date night, sit in the bar and have peach margaritas and split an entree. We are often served by the very freindly bartender who never fails to forget what we like to order...or the owner, who we have also seen at little league games where our kids play together. This isn't just a restaurant to us...while the food is great and never disappoints...it is a part of our community and part of our memories that we are building with our family. We recently went to downtown Bellevue with friends and found that all the restaurants were full...had hour long waits. We finally decided on one...sat to eat our outlandishly over priced meal with nouveau cuisine dollop sized portions and were served by a young kid who was indifferent and sort of rude like we should just be greatful to be there at all. All my husband & I could talk about on the way home was "El Charro's would have been better, faster, cheaper, friendlier".
Try the tortilla soup! – I love el charro because the staff is always so attentive and friendly and the tortilla soup is to DIE for :) It's inexpensive, quick, and delicious!
Favorite Place as a Child – One of our family's favorite places to go to. My sister and I would love to get the Mexican Pizza. Since moving away, I miss this restuarant and have not found a comparible Mexican restaurant where we live now. Whenever I go back and visit Washington, I take the time to stop in and get my Pizza!!
Solid Mexican fare – Nothing to write home about, but if you're looking for a good Mexican meal, this place is fine. Service was really good - fast turnaround, attentive staff. Worth their tip.
Authentic Mexican Food – I've been enjoying El Charro's fine food for years now and not once have I ever had a bad experience. The atmosphere is always great and the service is sincere and swift no matter what time you stop in. Only wish they served Cheviche all the time, but the carne asada and the menudo are wonderful!
