We have tried many Mexican restaurants in Yuma but El Charro is the very best!! Very authentic and delicious. The servings are huge. The salsa is good and the service is always friendly and helpful. They get very busy but seem to get the food out efficiently. Love this place!

First let me say that as a gal from the northeast I'm pretty fussy about my fish and had never had a fish taco but my friend who lives here told me that these were the best ones around. She was right. The fish was fresh and it was evident that the fry oil was clean. The salsa had lots... More

I have eaten at El Charro most of my life. The food is consistently great and the servers are friendly. If I had one complaint, it would be the noise. El Charro is located in an old house and it is very noisy. Don't let that deter you though, they have awesome food and great margaritas!!!

On a visit to Yuma, we stopped to have lunch on the way out of town & enjoyed a great lunch. Food was great & so was the service.

my parents used to take our family here when we were little. Of course we grew up and went our separate ways, but our brother's passing away brought us all to Yuma and back to El Charro. Went last night night with siblings and cousin and had not only a great meal, but conversations of fond memories. The staff made... More

We decided to have a Mexican meal when we stopped of in Yuma on our way to Phoenix. On the recommendation of a local we opted for this restaurant. On arrival we were warmly welcomed, escorted to our table and drinks ordered. I went for the Senoran taco dinner, my wife the beef fajita dinner. After a prolonged wait our... More
