This is the worst mexican I've eaten in Knoxville. Their slsa is straight from a can of puree no spices in it at all and the sauce on top of the burrito and enchilada are the same way, so generic it's worse than taco bell. There combo meals don't include rice and beans like most places and their prices are high for what they offer. Would not go back or reccomend

Great cheap, fast Mexican food. – Very good food at excellent location. Fast service and cheap. Good for lunch during the week when you're in a hurry.

Best Mexican Food in Knoxville!!! – I have been going to El Charro for the last 6 years and it has never failed to deliver. They have great chips (thin and crispy), pretty good salsa, great cheese dip, great burritos, fajitas, and tacos. I almost always get the #23. Service is always excellent and they serve your food quickly. Order a beer or margaritta and enjoy!

Best Knox has to offer? – Hailing from Texas, most folks claim that all we know down there is Tex-Mex, and that El Charro's is Authentic! Well, even the Mexican waiter I had said it was mediocre... very nice guy BTW and he seemed to appreciate my ordering in Spanish.

Taco's were wet/watery/soggy. Chicken fajita meat was flavorless chewy chunks. Chips weren't good. Queso there is not like Tex-Mex ( creamy cheese, guacamole, sour cream, beef) but is rather like the stuff you stick on veggies. Even Velveta would be an improvement.

Texas rule of thumb, the more Mexican food costs, the worse it is... so far El Charro's meets that standard.
