El Rodeo Mexican Bar & Grill reviews from OpenTable diners

    Excellent service and attentiveness. Food was fresh, tasty and moderately priced. There is ongoing construction as of this posting but it does not affect the dining room experience. If I were sitting at the bar, it could have been distracting.

    Every time I dine at el rodeo there is a really nice waiter named Arturo that is so welcoming and friendly - even if he is not your waiter. The staff is always nice and the food is always very good. Birthdays are always fun with sombrero and dessert and the song! I love this place. Muy rica comida!

    Good friendly service. Genuine owner/manager very receptive to patron feedback. We appreciated speaking with him and I came away with a strong sense that he is interested in providing a service of good value. The fresh chips and salsa are the best in town, no doubt. Great to have a good Tex-mex reataurant in town. Very reasonable prices and humongous portions. I'll be a regular!

    We had dinner about 5 pm on a Saturday. There was only one other group there, but we're assuming the business picked up later in the evening. We didn't mind the quiet at all. We really liked the spicy salsa, and the southwest eggrolls were very good. We both had chicken burritos,which weren't spicy, which we prefer. But the taste was good for the style of burrito. Parking was close by and inexpensive. And for Towson, El Rodeo was easy to find and it was easy navigate around the area. We will definitely return, and would recommend El Rodeo to others.

    TexMex was okay. Server was very nice and margaritas were delicious! Chips and salsa were better than Don Pablos, which were always a popular item. Pleasant experience, but not a need to return soon.

    My companions enjoyed the Garlic Shrimp and Mexican Steak. I was a bit disappointed in the Steak Fajitas. I've had better. The most surprising thing was that despite the rather large portion, it only came with 3 small tortillas. The enchiladas I had on my previous visit were much better.

    awesome happy hour drink specials ($2 margaritas.. can't go wrong!), also great tex-mex food. Very casual atmosphere with great service. Try the stuffed jalapeno appetizer- it was amazing!

    Convenient location, and nice interior. But the menu is Tex-Mex and not real Mexican. There are not many items for vegetarians, and I cannot say that the food is healthy. I missed fresh vegetables and 'greens.' On the other hand, compared with average Tex-Mex restaurants, the food was better.

    We sat inside, and had a great evening. Servies was chipper and pleasant. Servers are often not in the dinning area, and it would have been nice to have someone in the dining area to refill waters though. The band was loud, but very good. We'll certainly go back!

    Busy Friday. Our server Sara was great for a busy night as was the entire staff. Steak Fajitas hot and plentiful as was the taco dinner. I liked the frozen margaritas. We would have liked both the steak and the chicken to be more spicy. A little too plain. We will be back.

    My sister from out of town was celebrating her birthday (45). The band played-and sang, and even signed a sombrero that she got to keep. It was hysterical..she had a blast. The food was good and the price was right--only negative was that it was really hot in there--of course outside it was crazy hot too so it happens. I will suggest this place to young and old!

    It's nice to finally have a decent Tex-Mex restaurant in Baltimore. The salsa was amazing. The filling in the burrito was a bit mushy, but still acceptable.

    Went to El Rodeo for my friend's birthday, and we had a great time! We were there on a Thursday night, and they had a mariachi band and $5 margaritas, which were great! i am very picky about margaritas, but these were pretty good! the bar was a little backed up when we first arrived, so it took a while to get drinks. our server didn't know about the $5 margarita special (which was advertised on the table stand-ups, and on their website), but after i showed him the ad on the table, he honored it. I got the mango chipotle chicken quesadilla, which was FANTASTIC! we will definitely be going back, and soon!

    very good food and drinks. But the service is non-existent. Waiter was way overworked and paid no attention to any tables. Had to beg for service. No one seemed to know who was responsible for what.

    Reasonably pleasant place with mediocre Mexican food. There are chain restaurants that offer better Mexican.

    Thank you!! For bringing a Mexican restaurant to Towson!! My husband & I have been waiting for this since we moved here 3 yrs. ago! Last Sat. night we went to El Rodeo Mexican Bar & Grill for the first time. It just happened to be my husband's Birthday. We were very pleasantly surprised! The food was great (so many choices!), Margarita's were delicious (check out the "Skinnyrita" for those of you figure conscious folks), festive atmosphere (the wait staff surprised us with a Happy Birthday serenade to my husband & threw in some festive fried ice cream while donning him with a Sombrero to boot!). We were also happy that they take reservations!! Once again thank you for coming to Towson!!

    Since it is the ONLY Mexican restaurant in the entire area they probably are not worried, but their food was tasteless. Chips and salsa was the best thing of the evening. We also ordered Queso sauce which looked like Velvita and tasted like nothing. My wife's chimichanga was over cooked and she thought it was poor flavor. My Chili Verde was chunks of pork and virtually no sauce, but what little there was was cooked to death. The dressings (lettuce, tomato or salsa, sour cream) were a dot on the plate. The flavor was non-existent. Outdoor seating was o.k. but the views are poor. Just a city sidewalk. Waiter was energetic and attentive.

    I'll make this short and sweet. The food was good but the salsa was to die for! The atmosphere is fantastic. We loved the mariachi band. I went with my girlfriend and our children but we are already planning to go back for a girls night out!
