“The Mexican Food We've Been Longing For”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had been searching for months to find a good Mexican restaurant in New Hampshire, as we have missed all of our great choices we had when we lived in Knoxville. We are very happy to have found this gem in our new hometown.

Our waiter was probably the best we've ever had, very upbeat and happy to help. More importantly, the food was SUPERB! Our entrees were perfect (I highly recommend the Pollo Fundido) and the rice and beans were the sides we have missed. Yes, we think this place is better than your other options in Concord (Margarita's, Hermanos, and Dos Amigos). If you have to choose a Mexican restaurant in Concord, you should definitely choose this one.

“Excellent, no complaints!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We were brought to our table and promptly served warm chips and a nice salsa. Our server quickly brought our drinks and was attentive throughout the meal. We had the opportunity to chat briefly with 2 members of the staff/ management and were impressed with their commitment to the overall quality of El Rodeo's food, service and atmosphere. It is now our go-to place for Mexican food in Concord. You will not be disappointed!

“Decent Mexican food”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

The chips were warm and the salsa was good. I ordered the vegetarian A plate. It was good. The restaurant is clean and the service was fast and attentive. The outdoor seating looked nice too!

“Above average”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We meet friends here the other night. Was a beautiful night and we sat on the patio. Place was nicely decorated. Service was prompt , efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu had a wide range of apps and combos .Tried a combo that included rellenos and tamale. Food was delivered in a reasonable time, piping hot and well presented. Food was quite good but did not rise to "special" offerings. Certainly was above average. We will go back and try some more selections

“Old style mexican with a new world flair!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We took our son and daughter in law to their favorite Mexican restaurant that had opened since we were there last fall. This dinner trip was extremely enjoyable - greeted and seated promptly, chips and salsa adequate for 4 of us, and what a menu! They gave us enough time to find a starting point -- Chimichanga come as two, smaller but tasty, I had beef tips with chosen accompaniments... only regret was not getting black beans to sub for the authentic refried beans. Taco salad was well portioned to eat and enjoy variety of greens and toppings, and the Carnitas were worth drooling over from the other side of the table. I snagged a sample and yes, ummm good! If you are into pork roasted to perfection, just start there! We will be back - they are giving great food away for lower prices than anyone else in the area...hope they can continue to deliver excellence that we enjoyed!
