This place was so great!! The service was impeccable. I sat down for less than 30 seconds and chips and fresh salsa was in front of me. The food is yummy and reasonable prices. Definitely recommend El Rodeo.

This place has been a family favourite since it was located in a former Chinese restaurant in Chapel Hill. As former residents of Texas, we are very discerning about our Mexican food, and this is still our favourite. We just had a large group of 12 for dinner, and the service was fast and attentive. The margaritas actually taste like tequila (not watered down), and all the food has an authentic Tex-Mex taste. I can't stop eating the chips and guacamole!

One of the best (maybe the best) Tex-Mex style Mexican restaurants in the Triangle area. Fabulous margaritas and the best Dos Equis on draft around. This place also has Happy Dan the Magic Man on Friday nights which makes for a great environment to take your kids out to dinner too!

I definitely enjoyed my visit. The food was excellent and so was the service. The prices were extremely low and I will be returning in the near future. I am a tough critic with Mexican food because it's my favorite. I loved it.

Consistantly one of the best restaurants I frequent. From the moment you enter, the staff are always friendly and professional. The food is always superb and the service is excellent. And I love how clean they keep the place. Always a pleasure.

Food is fresh and hot. Service is pretty good. I always get the fajita nachos with shrimp instead of steak. Margaritas are a bit pricier than other places when they are on special. Overall, a good place to go.

Food was fantastic. Service and atmosphere was just as good. I don't know why it's taken us so long to go. Shrimp tacos were perfect.

The food was great. The prices are reasonable. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The only problem was the shift change. We had great service from our server but then they changed shifts and the girl that took over completely ignored us.

The food was delicious and I was amazed to see that they had many vegetarian options. By vegetarian I do not mean only salads, they had many more. The prices are very reasonable and we ordered one combination which was enough for two of us. The fries were the only dish I did not like. They tasted very odd but we had a nice server who immediately took it back. The rest was delicious. Surely going back there again.
