“Good Mexican food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

Visiting the area for the day, and the family agreed on Mexican for a late lunch. It was good. Nothing that really stood out. I enjoyed the cheese dip the most. Lots of seating!

“After more than a year of searching...here it is!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

After bitter disappointments since moving here in June 2012 I stumbled on El Charro on a trip to Harrisonburg. I have since visited the location in Fredericksburg along with probably a dozen other so-called Mexican restaurants here in Va. We were to a point that my wife refused to try any more with me due to the completely unauthentic mess that is typical in Mexican places here. Fortunately while on a business trip I tried El Charro. The first thing I did was snap a photo of my plate and sent it to here with the message "I've finally struck gold". This is the place. One taste of their salsa or con queso and you know it's true. It's a fine establishment with great service and real southern Mexico cooking. If you're up here in the frigid zone and need an enchilada fix this is the place to go.
