La comida muy auténtica y rica. El servicio no se lleva las 5 estrellas porque tuve la sensación de que me estaban apurando a pagar.

The best Mexican restaurant in the world, hands down.

Absolutely love Chapala’s and the queso is the best. The seasoned servers are the best and know what they’re doing, but the young servers are not the best. Only bad thing is their new chips they serve, tastes directly from a bag and stale. Please bring back the old chips and won’t have any complaints!

I have loved this restaurant for well over a decade. Their chorizo con queso is amazing. They always let me change things to make my ultimate and favorite meal without complaint!

We had a great waiter. He had a sense of you that was able to take ours on. Also, they have great margaritas.

Chapala's has always been one of my families favorite places to eat. I recommend the Chapala Burrito. Fairly priced and your get a good amount of food for what you order and they make it quickly. The service has always been good as well.

Love this place and their margs! We ordered a pitcher for my boyfriends birthday and they let us take what we didn't finish home with us which was exciting!

They have vegan friendly options, so we will definitely be back to try every item. But I think they left some items off our order. Everything we did get was filling enough without, and delicious!

We were very impressed with this restaurant tonight. My boyfriend is from Guatemala and I just moved to the US from Mexico a few months ago. It is impossible to find good Mexican food. While Mexican food in the US is NOTHING like the food found in Mexico, it has its own unique flavor. This restaurant had good flavors. The food was g ... read more

Absolutely amazing from start to finish! Enchiladas de Espinaca was one of the best vegetarian meals I've ever eaten! While the food was amazing, the service was even better. Jael was amazing! While managing multiple tables she was attentive to our table and couldn't be any more kind and polite! Chapala, hold on to this one, she is s ... read more
