After a bad experience at another Mexican restaurant in the area, we took our relatives here where they thoroughly enjoyed the bar and food. My favorite is the Carnitas, a meal with crispy chunks of pork in some magic sauce, rice, black beans, grilled onions and... More

Large portions. Decent food. Friendly staff. Lots of regular customers. I like the place, but every time we go I end up thinking that next time we'll try some other Mexican place instead.

We happened across this restaurant while on a trip. We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful food. Now every time we get anywhere near, we make the pilgrimage to visit this location. I am planning to see them very soon!

El Charros is another iconic restaurant in Cocoa. We've gone there since 1990, but they opened in 1985! I love the ambience as well as the food. Never had a bad meal there, but the best meal I enjoy there is the house specialty Carnitas...the best anywhere! The fajitas are wonderful! The portions are large and everything is well-prepared. Prices... More

Great variety on the menu and everything is delicious! We arrived a little early (before they opened) and the owner let us sit inside at the bar to wait :) staff was very attentive and friendly.

Just a great place to kick back with friends & family and to enjoy the great atmosphere that's kept folks coming back since 1985. Take some time to browse our menu online.

If you love the experience, tell your friends.
If you don't, tell us so that we can make it right!
