Have never been to Adrian before and this place was recommended. Very friendly and helpful service. Complimentary chips and salsa to start. Meals are big, so don't order too much. I had the wet burrito which filled an oval dinner plate! A big tasty lunch, with a beer and including the tip is less than $20. Lot's of parking around... More

People come from far to enjoy this local treat! El Chaps as the locals call it is a Mexican restaurants with a great menu! The prices are reasonable, and the food is great! With lots of drink options from the in house bar. The chips & cheese with homemade salsa is a must, on every visit!

I have been coming here for almost 40 years. Best place to get tacos and cheese dip in the area. My mother brought me here when I was a child. I have since past that on to my children and they are bringing their children here now. 3 generations

One step above Taco Bell...not by much. Food was mostly bland and uninspired. Tacos and burritos were dry and tasteless. Rice tasted stale, like it had been sitting under a warmer all day. The beans were the best part of the meal. We recently moved to the area and tried this restaurant based on a few recommendations. If this is... More
