     El Charro is typical of most mexican restaurants, they tend to locate in former restaurants.  El Charro on Bearden Hill recently relocated to the former Fazoli's building.  The restaurant is cleaner, larger, and comes with a larger staff.  Service is quick and the food is served fresh and hot.  As with the former Bearden location, parking can sometimes be a problem.  El Charro claims to have "the best salsa in Knoxville," and it is quite tasty.  The chain offers an Express location on the U.T. Strip and a strip mall location in Farragut.
