Los Charros Cantina
The food is great and the atmosphere is lively! We will return.
We’ve been here several times and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. This time we brought out-of-town visitors and they loved their meal (we shared tacos, beans, rice, chips and salsa flight) and margaritas. Churros were enjoyed by the others for dessert and I ordered the flan for myself.
The flan was a good individual size portion, but it did not look fresh, the consistency vas strange—not smooth and with congealed pieces throughout. Also, when I spooned up some of the caramel at the bottom, there was such a strong taste of salt, it made it even more unappealing.
I was very disappointed, but did not want to spoil the otherwise very enjoyable dinner/evening by complaining to our server, so I just decided to give up on it.
The food was beautifully presented but had no flavor. I ordered the oyster tacos and there was 1 small oyster and 1 thin slice of avocado per taco. That was pretty lean for a $ 15 price tag.
I have had many good dinners & drinks here. Definitely get a margarita, the flight of salsa & guacamole. I usually get the soft tacos which are small, but good. This time I got the taco salad with shrimp. The shrimp was yummy, the salad part and dressing could have been better. Great vibe if you sit in the right place. Definitely ask to be in the main room. The desserts are yummy.
Fantastic food in a lively setting!
Great date spot, they workers are super nice and food came out relatively fast. Loved our salsa flight and the person who told us about it was very knowledgeable. 10/10 dinner place, will definitely come back.
We were very pleased by our first visit to Los Charros Cantina. What a fun experience. The food was truly delicious, from the Salsa Flight, to the variety of Taco options, and ending with Tres Leche and Fried Churros. We'll definitely go back.
This place is a gem! Our Server, Chelsi, was absolutely fantastic, especially on a very busy Saturday night.
The food is imaginative and always great. The service is friendly and efficient. The ambiance is a bit trendy with a sophisticated edge. .Overall a great vibe and a great dining experience.
Fun, lively atmosphere! Amazing food, delicious drinks and great music! The chef was very accommodating to food allergies as well!
High end Mexican cuisine served in a festive and friendly environment. Their SEVEN types of salsa were fabulous!
Awesome! The new menu is great. The mojito tacos are amazing.
Debbie was our waitress and boy does she makes it fun!!! She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable about the menu and a true professional! The food is super fresh, delicious and I look forward to going back!
Great food and great drinks. Debbie is the best server there.
We went with another couple and all four of us were crazy about the food and ambiance. We were lucky to get Debby as our waitress because her advice on what to order was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will return.
Perfect in every way. We love this place.
This is our favorite family restaurant. Delish and interesting for adults, accommodating for kids.
Beautiful ambiance! Loved the fun atmosphere...
Food was very good :)
Great food, fun atmosphere. Vibrant. Definitely need to put this on your list if you have not been there. Bar has great drinks, food is terrific. Love the attached sister restaurant for fine dining-The Essex. (quieter,, gourmet food)
Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable, ingredients were very fresh. Authentic and unique menu. May seem a little pricey, but it’s obvious why. The quality of the food they serve is like nothing around here. Will definitely go back!
Birthday - nice quiet and unique experience.
Best Mexican restaurant I have been to in my entire life! Oh my god this place was amazing! The atmosphere, the food, the staff absolutely INCREDIBLEEEEE
Absolutely love the food! Best Mexican fare in the area! Great margaritas! Visit at least once a week, and can't wait to come back. Only negative is it is a little noisy, so request a table toward the sides or out on the patio.
Cant wait to visit again-
Best guacamole and chips...
Loved the Salsa sampler as well-
We loved it and will be back! Service exceptional!
Outstanding ! The owner and chef is amazing . Quite frankly I’ve never met a niceer owner and chef . Amazing Atmosphere and amazing food. Also try the Essex in the front of Cantina
Dear Sherry Rizza, I am at a loss. You had a $170 bill. $150 minus the kids for 3 people to have 11 cocktails and dinner. Yes chips are typically free, when they bring in inexpensive mass produced frozen remade chips. We bring in organic non gmo heirloom corn from Oaxaca, make tortillas and 7 different salsas fresh, and make chips daily from that. We charge $4. Perhaps you wrote this review while still drunk?
We were disappointed with our experience here after having read a very good review. The food was mediocre and the noise level was deafening. And a Mexican restaurant that doesn’t serve Mexican beer appears to have some management issues.
Delicious and unique menu at Los Charros. Great drink and dessert selection as well. It's quite lively there, but the staff are great and overall it's one of our favorite restaurants on the CT shoreline!
The staff was friendly and service was good although there were a couple errors. Like my son ordered the fish dinner and got the fish tacos which we had to send back and wait for his meal to be made. The place was a little noisy and temp was warm inside. We enjoyed the guacamole and chips. Loved the idea of a flight of salsas so we got that. Although out of 7 salsas only 3-4 had a worthwhile flavor. The food was tasty but portions are definitely small. And two tuna tacos are $14 served with nothing on the side? Not even a scoop of rice? I had the margarita of the day which was tangerine- blindfolded you would say it was delicious but not tangerine. The place was good but not so sure it’s great.
Don’t get the Brussels sprout tacos. The sprouts are so fried they are unrecognizable and then drenched in a syrupy sugary sauce. My stomach is a wreck. Had to take medicine when I got home. The guacamole also tasted sweet. So strange. My husband didn’t like his chicken either. Disappointing. Won’t return.
Chelsi, your server, she said that you were very satisfied with your meal and did not voice any complaint and ate everything on your plates. Tastes are subjective, however had you given your server the opportunity to replace your dish of the KOREAN INSPIRED SPICED HONEY crispy Brussels as listed, we would have happily done so. your review is the reason the system is broken. food borne illnesses do not set in in 2 hours, they take 12-24 hours to exhibit symptoms. not 2 hours. because SCIENCE
Second time to Los Charros. 🥰 food is excellent and service is great.
The sangria wasn't great but everything else was. We are old and wanted to chat, so our waiter found a slightly quieter corner for us and it was perfect.
Cocktails, food and service were great and we would return when in the area again.
Tequila Old Fashion was different and good as was the Sangria.
Was disappointed at the small selection of Mexican beer but not a big deal.
Lobster tacos & chorizo tacos were both great as were the shishito peppers.
For dessert we had the churro beignets and they were awesome.
Good food and drink. Noisy. Great value. One of only a few with good Mexican style salsas.
The place is so cute. The food is amazing. Very authentic and just so yummy. Smaller portions but you will fill up by getting an appetizer of their amazing chips and salsa flight or chips and guacamole. The service staff really goes out of their way to recommend good items and tell you all you need to know about the food. They cater to all allergies and dietary restrictions (i’m Vegetarian). It’s a great place with great food and drinks and I would 100% keep coming back.
Very good Mexican meal before the show at the Ivoryton.
Very accommodating waitress! Fast service. Good food n drinks.
Very good food; reasonably priced; excellent service; festive ambiance; noise level due to music, too loud, hard to converse with people at our table
Great food excellent wait staff. Will definitely be coming back.
