There used to be several locations in town. Now there is only one. It is a small restaurant but has great Mexican style food - tacos, burritos, enchiladas, mole, etc. Inexpensive, but good

I was lured in by the nice decorations a first time, and came back a second time a couple of weeks later. It's a great place to have lunch, and the food is cheap. The only thing I didn't like was that the food was too salty for me both time - I told them, maybe they'll change it, or... More

This was my third and fourth time and was not disappointed by the authentic Mexican cuisine lovingly made to order.

Went on a weekend for lunch with two other men, one was Bolivian. They were skeptical of Mexican food in SCZ. We bypassed the buffet. The restaurant was full of families and children having the buffet. We all ordered beer and super burritos. WOW. How they made these humble dishes sing! You can tell the ingredients were fresh, high quality... More

As we would say in Chile, "El Chile" is an excellent "picada". Great food, great service, low prices in a little restaurant with a lot of potential. It would not surprise me if this restaurant turns into a chain of excellent mexican food restaurant. All dishes were prepared very well, the attention of the waitres was fast and clear, and... More

Couldn't fault the food here - we came here two nights in a row. A reasonably varied menu including traditional dishes and Tex Mex. Dishes are simple but very tasty. Prices are B$25-40 for mains. The room is simply decorated with Frida Kahlo prints and multi-coloured tablecloths. Margaritas are excellent, and the service is attentive and friendly.

The food here, I have to say, is absolutely outstanding. I have eaten more than my share of good Mexican, having lived in southern California for 13 years and lived with an excellent Mexican cook for 8 months. I am also a bit of a foodie and I know good food, and the food at Chile is hands down the... More
