This finally opened again not that long ago and believe me when I tell you that I almost ran into the wall when I saw that this location shut it's doors for a moment. This place is the heart of Chandler and I can say that I have been going her for over 10 years. They have wonderful food and... More

Went here based on reviews and was disappointed. It happened to be taco night, and although $6.50 for 4 tacos is ok--they were just okay. There was a lot of meat, chicken and carne asada. However the meat had no taste or spice in it. The carne asada was probably the worst I ve had--did not even look like what... More

Espo's doesn't have a vibe that immediately draws you to stop at it when you go driving on by on Chandler Avenue. However, it is one of those places that once word of mouth tells you to eat there, you end up returning and bringing other people, like we have. It isn't fancy, but it is great food. And although...

Go here for the green chile beef and you won't be disappointed! It was a busy Sunday afternoon at Espos but the line moved fairly quickly. We had the El Chapo burro and the carnitas burro. The El Chapo was filled with green chile beef, potato and cheese. I loved the green chile and the spicy kick to it which... More

Brought my family here for lunch. First time and definitely not the last. Food was delicious and large portions served. It was packed when we arrived due to closeness to the lunch hour. Have some patience, it's worth the wait.

We also have a home in GA and I miss my Mexican food from Arizona. We have been going to Espo's as soon as we get off the air plane for at least 25 years. The first week I was back this year I ate there 3 times. It is not fancy and is a hole in the wall but... More

Espo's is a Chandler Mexican food tradition. It was historically part of a small convenience store next door to it, but that has been closed for years. The restaurant however, has generally done quite well because the food is excellent. It closed down briefly a year or so ago, and now that it has re-opened the food is if anything... More

Love this place. Very authentic, local, family run resturant. The tamales are so yummy. I really enjoy the patio on cool nights too. Ice cold beer and street tacos are a must!
