Loved it. Got the Fajita burrito and Margaron. Ingredients were clearly fresh and high quality. They were cooked fresh and it was delicious. Service was also attentive and very good. The patio is beautiful and nice and secluded. I'd recommend eating there.

I love getting the tortilla chips and salsa as an appetizer before hand, they tasted so fresh and crisp. The service was quick and the staff was very informative on the menu. Everything tasted great and the portions were very good for the price. I would definitely like to come back here when I am in the area again.

Great variety of frozen margaritas. We tried watermelon and mango - both great! But I’d recommend mango. Lunch portion was excellent and the taste was fantastic. Perfect Tex-Amex craving fulfilled. Extremely friendly staff, too!

El rodeo is always good. I reccomend the Texas quesadilla with peppers, onions ,cheese, steak, shrimp, & chicken. Can't beat that! And margaritas are on point!!!!

Surprised by this hidden gem in Durham. They are quite liberal on the steak in the lunch burrito which made me happy! Both the serving size and the taste made this place a filling treat for me.

If you get the pitcher of margarita it's really good and it actually has a decent amount of liquor in it. I recommend the blue one. The food is 🔥💯.

This is a perfectly adequate tex mex place. Service is fast, food is consistant and there are no surprises. Usually have pretty good drink specials on the weekends but you do have to ask the servers. Nice area of outdoor seating in the walkway in brightleaf when the weather is nice.

I've eaten at other El Rodeo restaurants in the area, but have to say consistantly this one is the best, in my opinion.

I had the veggie burrito and my daughter had the veggie enchiladas ...both very tasty. Chips were really good ... salsa didn’t have much personality ...service was pretty attentive.

I think this place deserves a higher rating than it has now. A large amount of food was ordered and there was only a 15 minute wait. When we got there the food was handed to us right away. If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food this would be your best option. Me and the others were happy with our orders and have no complaints whatsoever. We only have great things to say about this place.

Standard Mexican dishes with great flavor and consistency. Their chicken tortilla soup is very filling.

The food was dry. Parts of my entree was cold. The waitress did ask if I wanted something else, but I declined.
