We went on Taco Tuesday to get some $2.50 Taco's. The Taco's were really great and all 6 taco's we tried were excellent. The portions are very very small though. Two of us went through 13 taco's in no time. Add some drinks and all of a sudden, a cheap dinner can turn REALLY expensive. Food was good, Service was... More

I have been here a couple of times while I am shopping at the market I tried most of the tacos some are good others are pretty boring the ones I liked were Cochinita (pork) & the Pastor (pork with pineapple) but were juicy lots of flavor. I also tried the chorizo, Barbacoa (beef) & Mixiote (chicken) was not a... More

We stopped by with a large party the other night, this was my first time dining here, we were recommended to try them out. The atmosphere is great, love the music, but unfortunately the food was really bad. And the value is pathetic. The tacos were soggy and desintigrating, and tasted musty. There was barely anything in them, can you... More

My wife and I were looking for a casual spot for dinner along 17th Avenue S.W. as she was already in the area and I was just meeting her. I read about Los Chilitos on TripAdvisor and thought we would give it a try. Friday night at 8:00 PM we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. I... More

I've been twice and have enjoyed it but was not overwhelmed... A little slow and the food is pretty good but there could be some improvement. Portions are a little small and not always as fresh as I would like. It's pretty pricey as well but it's getting that way everywhere in Calgary. That is mostly a government issue though.... More

Good food, the taste of homemade original Mexican and the ambience gives you the illusion of being in Mexico enjoying a beer and eating tacos! Best dishes: guacamole and totopos of course! Shrimp quesadillas, flautas de pollo, tacos de pescado, tacos de carnitas! We've had many other dishes but i think these are the top 5! Recommend it 100%

I Love the food here, BUT year after year the WASP problem goes unacknowledged by management. I will unfortunately not be giving one of my favorite places another chance. The service was lovely as always, but even the servers were agreeing how ridiculous the wasp problem is. We also noticed EVRRY other table on the patio complaining. We were planning... More

Hello, We apologize for your experience last time with those pesky Wasps. We did put up wasp traps but they obviously don't seem to be doing the trick so well. We contacted a pest control company yesterday when we were notified of this and they are onsite today to investigate if there is a nest nearby and will work with... More

Great Classic Margarita along with freshly made Taco's gives a perfect blend of dinner at one of the most posh area's of Calgary. Located just over the happening 17th Ave, provides nice blend of Mexican food with some great cocktails. The meat or fish Taco's are great to have with the usual sauce. The service is relatively poor. It was... More
