Stopped in as we were passing through. The food was just ok...I had the taco roll with rice and my husband had the nachos. The tres leche cake was old and dry.

The food was good on one visit but ok on the next visit. The staff and service are the same, some days they are great and on top of everything, other days they lack the skills to be curtious or first. I believe the price of the food is good for the quantity of food, but the service and quality... More

It was our first time there. Food was great. Restrooms were awful they need an upgrade to match their beautiful rustic restaurant.

On Saturdays about once a month our small group of ladies stops in for lunch. My favorite item is the chili verde burrito. It's about $5 and I frequently have to take some home. I forgot to mention that you wait in line to order, get your drink, find a seat, your order is typically ready within 5 minutes unless... More

My family of 5 and I stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night and had a great dinner. We each had something different and it was all delicious. I think mine was the best though, adobada tacos (seasoned pork). I ordered 4 (at about $1.50 a taco I figured they'd be small), but they put so much meat in... More

I've been eating lunches at Chaguitos for the past 30 years and never have been disappointed. No need to wait for waitresses since customers make their orders and once your food is ready, the cooks call your number. The bakery always has fresh bread and cakes. The tortas and burritos are huge; hope you have an appetite.

They have the best Tortas. The inside could use an update from what I remember, but I haven't been there for a year since I live out of town. I try to go when I'm visiting family. We are never disappointed with the flavor and my kids love it too.

Based on reviews, we did dinner here while in Porterville recently. It's located in a working area of porterville; exterior was attractive... interior was tired. You serve yourself by ordering from the counter... food was quickly served, hot, and tasty. Salsa bar was good, but needed additional service. Oh, and we were the only non-hispanics there. RECOMMENDED!

You order/pay at the counter and wait for your number to be called. Great salsa bar so you can fix everything your way. I love the taco's....but at times get the nacho's to go (with meat) and add sauces all over the top of the nachos...take them home and put them in the frig for next day when they are... More
