Love the Queso and enchilada's. Great family restaurant and reasonably priced. They participate in raising money for sports & schools in the community.

The food definitely satisfied our craving for Mexican food and the menu seemed endless, not to mention reasonably priced. I've noticed a lot of "poor service" reviews...perhaps changes have been made or expectations are (way) too high, but we encountered nothing but friendly staff, everywhere we turned! Service was also fast, and spot-on. We couldn't have asked for anything more, for the price point. Our favorite part of the meal was the giant fried ice cream sundae that my family of 4 devoured. : )

Incredibly rude staff, mediocre food AT BEST, overpriced, tacky environment… waitstaff overcharged us; they added on extra liquor that we didn't buy, THEN REFUSED TO TAKE IT OFF OUR BILL… The waiter "Jorge" is one to watch out for, very rude, inconsiderate.

The staff speaks Spanish in front of you with each other, so you may not understand if one doesn't speak Spanish. I would avoid this place, it's a poor excuse for authentic Mexican food

Meeting a couple for dinner at El Rodeo and place was busy which is a good sign in my book. Service was sloppy at best as waiter messed up the drink order and blame the couple for the error. Ran of chips & salsas (never saw the variety of salsas noted in the previous review) and needed to flag down a busboy to get a refill. Only serve 3 of the 4 meals with the final meal coming 4 to 5 minutes later. Ordered the Burrito, Enchilada combo plate. Loads of chicken and no fillers, but a little dry for me. Wife had the 3 Enchilada - beef & chicken were excellent, but cheese was whimpy. Will come back and trust the service will be better next time

Fantastic food and service! They gave us several bowls of chips and several varieties of salsas ranging in spice flavors. They were all so good! Very nice people who run the place. All the food we got was amazing and couldn't eat it all. My kids also loved their meals.
