Watch how you pay at the Harrisburg location. At least one of the waitresses will try to pad your bill so she receives a larger tip. Happened to me twice. I will never pay with a card again, IF I ever go back.
Very good food at reasonable prices. Very hard to find good mexican restaurants like this is PA. The only negative was a loud Mariachi band playing at various tables around me while I was there. Salsa and service was excellent.
I'd been going to El Rodeo for year, simply because I loved the food. I mentioned the place to a friend who had been raised in southern California and commented how much he missed good Mexican food. His family made the trip to the restaurant... and then made it a weekly ritual. He said it was the most authentic Mexican he'd ate since leaving southern California. Their chips and salsa can't be beat!
If you want good Mexican food served piping hot and FAST....this is the place. Sometimes the FAST is too fast (barely put your order in and it's on the table). Reasonably priced. Typical El Rodeo/Mexican Restaurant ambiance.
Service is excellent, waitstaff are attentive, yet non-intrusive, drinks, chips, and salsa are replenished as needed, they never charge extra for the refills, decor is authentic-style Mexican, seating is roomy, tables and floor are clean, and the food is prepared quickly and accurately. I special order alot and they accommodate and it is always perfect. They absolutely have the very best salsa in the whole world and home-made tortilla chips are usually warm, crispy and very tasty.

Being from Texas I know great Mexican food when I taste it and let me tell you that the food is incredible. They prepare very quickly as well. I never had to wait more than 10 or 15 minutes. Sometimes it is hard to understand the wait staff but that is to be expected if you want genuine Mexican food.
