El Charro Mexicano Restaurant

@nanigurl is on a mission to discover a really good Mexican restaurant that will become my new favorite (since my current favorite Mexican restaurant is one she doesn't really care for), so we decided to meet up at El Charro Mexicano Restaurant in Aiea (near Aiea Bowl).

Upon arrival we got a complimentary bowl of chips and salsa.

They give you only one complimentary order of chips and salsa, and additional orders are $1 each.

We did get another order of chips and salsa, but we didn't get charged for it either because they messed up on my order (they gave me kalua pork instead of chicken in my Chimichanga) or our server simply forgot because he did forget to bring us the chips and salsa and had to remind him.

Here is the Chicken Chimichanga I ordered.  It was really good, although I did not expect it to have any sauce on it.
@nanigurl ordered the Two Taco Plate, one with Shredded Chicken and the other with Kalua Pork.
One thing about the restaurant was that it was REALLY warm.  I don't know if that's how it usually is or if the air conditioning was just broken that day, but it was uncomfortably warm.

Overall, the food was good, the service really friendly, but at times slow (such as when we had to wait for the chips and salsa and also while waiting for our change--it took a looooooong time), and although I can't say it's my new favorite Mexican restaurant, I can say that I really liked it and I will be happy to meet @nanigurl there anytime!

That's one place I'd like to dine at. Hubby and I were thinking of going there earlier this month.
