Great chilaquiles! I get mine
Great chilaquiles! I get mine with eggs instead of meat. Great margaritas and kids menu. The only thing i'd wish for is that chips and salsa should be free.

The food was good and filling, so we ended up taking a lot home because we couldn't finish it all. I do NOT recommend the coffee. It was Folger's instant. The waitress seemed confused and forgot things like giving us napkins, but she was so nice I didn't mind too much. The outdoor seating was nice, but noisy because it is on Lake Street. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Great food, great service
The food was really good! We took our children and they loved it too. We ordered this huge plate of meat. It included beef ribs, pork, beef strips, chicken, and chorizo. It was so good!
My husband ordered the Mole and the waitress came back and told us that the cooks said it wasn't quite right. I was impressed with this! The waitress also told us that they did have REALLY good mole. We will definitely go back for it!

Great Cochinita Pibil!
I would drive back to the City to experience this dish - Chochinita Pibil again in a heartbeat! It is slow roasted pork marinated in an achiote citrus paste. The flavor was incredible. We had a marvelous waitress too.
Other foods that rated highly - the steak and chicken fajitas and the chicken with mole sauce.

Another Great Find
At first, when we entered there was a strong smell of disinfectant which was a bit distracting. However, I am pleased that we chose to ignore it and stayed for dinner. The odor faded and the food was fabulous! This restaurant easily eclipses my former favorite Mexican restaurant for authenticity. Everything was very fresh with strong distinctive flavors! There were so many things on the menu that we wanted to try that I look forward to returning to sample additional dishes!!

El Nuevo Rodeo is one of the
El Nuevo Rodeo is one of the best values in Minneapolis. For less than $20 (although it was during happy hour), we got all the food we could eat, and all the drink we could handle. Very authentic, very tasty, very good value. This place is definitely worth the few-block drive from Uptown.
