It was very busy which is a good sign that the food was good. We were very happy with our meal which was a variety of things. Serve was fast and friendly. Prices were also very good for what you get.

I have visited this restaurant dozens of times. Food is always good. Service can be a little slow but it is usually very busy on those nights. The Jalisco special is a favorite on the menu.

We tried this without any recommendations and have returned twice and never disappointed. The carnitas plate is exceptional and large portions. Service is a little slow but worth the wait. Very good!

If you can never have too much salty ground beef, then you will love this chain. Taco Bell is better.

Bad excuse for authentic Mexican food. Fajitas were jut warm not sizzling. Had to ask for tortelias three times. Only two tortelias in each foil pack. REALLY!! Salsa bland tasting. The Guacamole was flat, and obviously a mix of some kind. Very creamy looking. Will not eat here again.

It was stale, cold, yellow, store-bought tortillas, wrapped around cold ground beef, with a can of store-bought red sauce poured on top and sprinkled with cheese that hadn't even... More

On the recommendation of the clerk at the Best Western in Carthage, Missouri, we went to the El Chorro in Carthage. It was full, and we soon found out why. The food was delicious and inexpensive. It was late so we didn't have big meals, but I had a Burrito and my husband had tacos. They were very tasty without... More

We haven't too much luck with Mexican food this summer but this place is very good. We went there with a group and they handled our food order very well and delivered it perfectly.
