So over the weekend I had to run a few errands and wanted some takeout.  I recalled that a few people mentioned that if I wanted good Mexican food, that Tacos El Charro on Broadway was a nice local place.  It was on my way home, so I decided to stop by.

One of the young men enjoying his lunch told me this place had been here for about 10 years.  There wasn't anything fancy about the place, but for me, if the food is good, then there will be a good chance I will return.  It was a pretty simple looking place, and the kitchen was hidden.  Mexican music was playing.  Not too loud.

I checked out the menu, and decided a burrito and a taco was a simple way to go.  In my experience, if the simple items to make are flavorful, then the rest of the menu will be good.  I went with the Carne Asada burrito and a chorizo sausage taco.


The photos above are the Asada and the Chorizo tacos.  A guest there let me take photos of them.  My taco, with fresh cilantro and onions was delicious. He also had homemade Pico De Gallo seen below.


The burrito was very large.  Lots of meat, rice and beans.  Had to slice it in half once I got home to eat it.  Fresh homemade Guac, Pico, and included sides of sour cream, their green salsa (fabulous) and a mild Mexican hot sauce.

Their Facebook page link is HERE and I was very impressed with the food portions sizes, the cleanliness of the restaurant and the authentic Mexican options.  I saw the Tortas there as well and will order them next time.  This place earned a new customer and you should try them if you have not already.
