Mix and match is picking any of the following items: taco, tostada, enchilada, chile Arellano, beans or rice for a dollar each item.... YES $1.00 US each item..... Best deal we have seen in years and the food was awesome especially the chile rellanos.... More

Breakfast is always good here, but Sunday Breakfast for a family or a group is really the best in the South Campos. Breakfast served family style includes a combinationof 4 to 5 really delicious items, from American favorites to Mexican. During the week, we always get the Chile Rellano Combination. The best Chile Rellano we've ever had, made with Poblano... More

I had the shredded beef tacos and they were very good, the chorizo and eggs were good as well and always served with a smile. Bloody Mary was made well.

Chelo's is a great place to have a good meal at a reasonable price. Closed during the summer. They have a FB page to check their hours.

just a short trip from San Felipe will net you a great breakfast. We discovered this place in 2009 and visit it often for Sunday breakfast. It is clean, easy to find parking, and the service from the Lopez family is great. The food? VERY GOOD. My wife loves the chile relleno omelet, I prefer the pancakes with nuts. I... More

Breakfast starts at 7:00 on Sundays and runs until 2:00 or when the last guest leaves. The array of omelets is incredible, served with crispy bacon and hash browns. My favorite is the chile rellano omelette. My husband always has the very best cinnamon, nut pancakes, so thick that he takes one home for lunch. They also serve a delicious... More

They even brought out a birthday pancake decorated with swirls of chocolate, colorful sprinkles and a firecracker candle on top for my husband's birthday, the... More

The first time we stopped at Chelo's after they had closed and met the owners who are nice people! We learned that this local eatery has been in business for 25 years! We made it a point to stop at Chelo's next time so we happened to be on on our way to Puertecitos to soak in the Mineral Hot... More

Not only is the food fresh, hot, and yummy but the prices are really great! The family that runs Chelo's is not only cooking it up in the kitchen but serving you as well. She recently started a happy hour and a great new selection of appetizers too! Breakfast is great but the grilled local caught shrimp plate is to... More
