I visited this resturant recently and wasn't disappointed. The food wan't anything special. I have had better and worse. The prices were very reasonable. The drinks were a bit overpriced though. My margarita was in a tiny glass, if there was alcohol in it I couldn't taste it, and it was $9.

When one enters a Mexican restaurant in North Carolina, one will usually experience almost exactly the same thing. There are basically two types of Mexican Restaurant: Typical (90%), Authentic (10%). El Rodeo is typical.

That's not necessarily bad. Sometimes you just want comfortable food. But don't expect more.

That same factory that mass produces the salsa for the 90% typical Mexican Restaurants provides your salsa here too. The chips are fresh.

The rest of the menu is out of Tex-Mex central casting.

The service it good. The environment....meh.

As so well put by another reviewer...it is what it is.

Affordable, quick Mexican food that was fairly large in portion size and value. Nothing elaborate or fancy, but it was a good meal.

It is what it is. Decent, reasonably priced mexican food with quick service. I know what I am getting, and it is an affordable lunch option when you are in the mood for no frills mexican food.

We went last night. I wont be back. the meat had no flavor, the rice was dry and looked like it had been there since early this morning. It wasnt even hot. The server did ask if i wanted to try something else after expressing my dislike i did decline. I mean how can you mess up a tostada? I was afraid to try anything else.
