El Rodeo is a chain of restaurants in our area of Pennsylvania. K (my boyfriend) and I had been wanting to stop at the Harrisburg location to eat and finally found the time last weekend.
I had already looked online to see what on their menu I could eat and discovered they have a vegetarian menu. I had been told that they are willing to remove the cheese and/or sour cream to make dishes vegan so I wasn't expecting an issue.
I chose the Vegetarian Chimichanga which was described on the menu as:
"Two soft or fried chimichangas with grilled onions, tomatoes,
green bell pepper, squash and zucchini. Topped with lettuce,
sour cream and guacamole. Served with rice."
I explained to our server that I'd like them fried and without the sour cream. I then asked if there was any other dairy items in the dish and she gave me a weird look then told me there was cheese. I wasn't expecting that as it wasn't listed. Good thing I asked. I asked for no cheese as well.
K decided to get the Grande Dinner out of frustration, I believe. He found the menu a bit intimidating with so many choices.
We were both happy with our meals.
I found out later that the rice might not be vegan as traditional Mexican rice is made with chicken broth and theirs might be. I did see on the menu that one can substitute black beans as a side so I think I'll go with that next time.
All in all, I enjoyed the visit and I think we will be back.
