A word from El Charro - Livermore
El Charro is the traditional horseman from Mexico who participates in the charreada, or Mexican rodeo. Charros are experts in horsemanship, rope tricks, bull riding and steer roping. One of the most recognized symbols of Mexico is associated with the charro – his tightly tailored suit and vest, adorned with embroidery and silver buttons, worn with a soft tie and wide brimmed sombrero. Mexico’s history and complexity are captured in this time-honored suit that represents the nation's passion for ritual, and tradition. When we started our restaurant in 2001, we wanted a name that captured the heritage of Mexico as well as the cowboy history of Livermore. "El Charro" is a perfect symbolic reflection of both worlds. We specialize in authentic Mexican cuisine, including our famous enchiladas, winners of "Best Taste of Downtown" for five consecutive years. In addition, El Charro features a full bar offering a wide selection of your favorite tequilas, cervezas, and of course Livermore wines.Continued

  • "We decided to go here for a night out, our server was great, food was ok... The noise level in the restaurant was way too loud and bright!"

  • "We live in town and I drive by this place everyday. Never thought to give it a try until now and sure glad we did. The service was amazing, thank you Eric. The drinks were ordered, they came right away, placed dinner order and I swear it was sitting in front of us in less than 7 minutes! A little load but for a Friday night that would be the norm. Can't wait to try something else on the menu."

  • "We enjoyed our meal enhanced by friendly, prompt service The chicken mole was just "ok". Prices were reasonable. The menu is standard California Mexican with a variety of margaritas. The location is good--close to First Street and the Livermore Cinema. Small parking lot, but parking is available on the side street."

  • "Our extended family of 10 visited El Charro on a Sunday afternoon, with reservations at 1:30. El Charro was ready for us, and had the table set up already, so as we arrived we could be seated immediately. We had a wonderful server (wish I could remember his name),who made our whole lunch even more special. We asked if the music could be turned down, and he took care of that; he checked with us to see if we were ready to order, and did not hurry us in any way; he explained any questions we had about our choices; and in general, we felt like we were at home in this restaurant. Very comfortable. He even suggested that he could separate the orders so we could pay individually. What a treat! The food was delicious, and we will return!"

  • "Great Mexican food. Pretty authentic. Severs always very friendly, attentive. My go-to for Mexican food cravings - which is at least weekly!"

  • "First time visit for dinner for 6 people. Margaritas were excellent and the food was just about perfect. We were seated in a room with a large group of people who were extremely noisy and they happily moved us to another room. Nice to finally find a really good Mexican restaurant...tired of the other local Mexican restaurants in Livermore and Dublin."
