THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tacos El Charro Restaurant Review

: Ignore the kitschy veneer over this small J.P. storefront---sombreros, neon signs and piñatas---which may evoke nada but Coronas and stale burritos. In fact, its kitchen delivers genuine comida. Authentic soft tacos ($1 on Wednesdays), fat tamales, shrimp in cilantro-rich green sauce and the occasional goat stew keep us coming back. The house-made sangría is a bit on the sweet side, so we stick with Mexican beers like Negro Modelo.
