Food is always fast and good. Service is always great. I've been going here over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. Oh yes..DAILY DRINK SPECIALS!

The food never disappoints! They serve big portions, the waitresses was attentive, keep bringing refills, asking is everything was okay.

The food was great and came out in a timely manner. I don't like when wait staff are constantly at your table and this was a nice happy medium of service. It didn't feel like they were always at the table but we didn't have to flag them down either. The drinks are great and reasonably priced. They do make drinks that are not on the menu though so make sure you ask if it's not on there.

Great, fast service. Generous portions of food. Flavor is good, but doesn't stand out. Inside, it can be a little noisy. Decor is colorful and fun - it has a very festive feel.

Some of the better Mexican food I've had in the Durham-Chapel Hill area. The beef in the burrito was nicely seasoned. Thre sauce on the burrito was delicious. As you can see from the photo, it is a huge burrito. The cheese enchilada was likewise delicious. The cheese was some of best I've ever jad in an enchilada. The moldè sauce had a hint of cocoa and was very good. My only disappointment was the salsa. It was very think and tasted like tomato juice. It lacked any flavor other than that of tomatoes. However, since everything else was so good, it's not a deal killer. Service was great and plenty of atmosphere. Go there, you will get your money's worth

We have been going to El Rodeo regularly for over a year. Great food, reasonable prices, and excellent service. If you've not given El Rodeo a try, I would highly recommend them.

So I came here for cinco de Mayo. Now I understand it was busy and short staffed, HOWEVER the waiter we had stopped by the tables NEAR US but never to us. We were there maybe an hour or so and this was because he seated us well he had someone else seat us, came to the table maybe 15 minutes after sitting down to introduce him as our waiter then asked if we wanted to start off with water , (we were about to order alcohol too.) immediately after us saying yes to the water he rushed off very quickly. We then had another 10 minute wait for the water. Then when he comes back he tries to rush off again, I had to yell out like hey we want to order drinks. He must’ve not heard me because a lady Came over about five minutes later to take our drink order. We ordered margaritas and she didn’t even write the order down. Came back about twenty minutes later and 3 out of the 4 that were ordered, were wrong. Waited another 10 minutes for that. Finally got to order the food, waiting about 35 minutes for the food and it came out cold. It was ridiculous at that point. Margaritas were good but food was okay. Service was horrible. Didn’t get checked on not ONCE for remaining time after getting food or actually at all for that matter. Was a little disappointed.
