  • Breakfast selections are hidden on the menu but worth finding and served all day. Try the red chile tamal and the scrambled eggs and green chile! Delicious!
  • Love the seca beef. Very different.
  • The Costilla ribs are phenomenal
  • They dry their Carne Seca on the roof under the Tucson sun. Que rico!
  • Amazing enchiladas and huge selection of gluten free dishes!
  • Being a regular customer here, I am disappointed that they pulled the lunch menu today (Thurs) to cash in on holiday travelers. No bueno El Charro :(

  • The tamales are great!
  • Take some salsa home with you! Buy it in the gift shop...
  • If you're in the mood for Mexican go no further. The Barbacoa tacos are awesome. This place is popular so make a reservation.
