Stopped in here for lunch with the parents. It was really good. Everything was pretty authentic. Cuban food is on their menu as well. My only criticism would be there was way too much onion in the salsa, but that's my opinion.

You won't be disappointed with your visit to El Charro's. This family-run restaurant offers great Mexican food at great prices. The quesadillas and burritos are chock full of meat, the grilled chicken salad with avocados is delicious, and the chips and salsa keep coming. They even offer a "children's salsa" for those who prefer not to walk around all day... More

I think we've tried them all, but we keep coming back to El Charro's. 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

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're planning a nite out or looking for something "to go", call ahead and we'll have it "Ready-to-Roll" when you arrive.
