Best tasting Mexican food around; affordably priced and their servers are always so upbeat! We dine here frequently and will continue going back.

Been here a few times, basing this mostly on recent; Service was timely, but faux-nice-to-awkward, atmosphere is pleasant when not busy. Food is not great, especially for the prices. Found out by word of mouth that you get better quality food based on favoritism or regularity. Food was not good enough on the first visits to wait for this nonsense... More

We had car issues and needed to spend the night in Safford. Being hungry, we were impressed with the very nice looking El Charro restaurant. Inside, it looks just as nice and it was nice to be able to seated immediately. The people were nice and there were a good range of food choices. Prices were quite reasonable as well.... More

We always have a great time here. The food is very good, and always tastes good. We use this as a family gathering spot and have for years. Our family recommends this place to your family.

Second Mexican restaurant in Safford in as many nights and not happy with this one either. The service was good but the food was tasteless. I had the Indian fry bread with green chili and there was little chili taste and absolutely no heat.

The staff is friendly, the food is delicious, it in the right price range. You get your food fairly fast not a long wait. We eat there very often.

The food was okay, but nothing great. The floors were dirty with paper and food from the entire day. It was okay, but not somewhere I would return to often.
