My fiancé is from Costa Rica, so when we saw Costa Rican style dishes on a routine search for a dinner location we had to check it out. The Costa Rican style arroz con pollo and Cuban Ropa Vieja did not disappoint! Rita herself came by our table and reminisced about the mother land with my fiancé. She invited us... More

The food was delicious! The price was reasonable And the waitress are very friendly and helpful! The best thing on the menu is the Carne Asada ! The Sangria is pretty good and the place makes you feel like you are in a Latin Country.

Toyota owners waiting on a vehicle to be serviced, head over here for lunch! You'll be glad you did. Nothing fancy, but very good salsa, rice and beans, that are obviously made on site. Chicken fajitas were great. The nicest thing was when one of the regulars just asked to say thanks and good bye to the owner, Rita, even... More

The meal was fine but not memorable. Salsa had no zap. Chips homogenized. Burrito big and loaded with cheese, guacamole and sour cream. Meat was ground beef. No fire or unique flavor. Big not necessarily better. Arroz con pollo was ok, but if you are expecting the moistness of the rice and chicken (like Cuban chicken and rice), you will... More

If you want authentic Costa Rican food, this is the place. Absolutely delicious. One of our favorite places to go in town. Rita, the owner and chef, is from Costa Rica and knows good, authentic food. If you go in, order the casada. It is the name for a traditional Costa Rican plate of steamed vegetables, a salad and either... More

They have good Mexican food but the down side is they are not open in the evenings except for Thur. Fri and Sat. It is a very casual atmosphere and sometimes they have someone playing guitar. It is a good place for large groups of people. They have several TVs on different channels.

It appears to be a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant, but looks are deceiving. I have had some of the best Mexican food here.

I really dug the mix of South America, Mexican, and Puerto Rican flavored food! Nothing like I've ever had! If you want traditional, then look no further!!

In Thai restaurants my standard response about fire level is "Try to kill me," and I add a pepper sauce to their salsa, but the flavor of Chulas' dishes is delicate enough that I tend not to want them loaded with capsaicin. The cooking derives from Puerto Rico and Costa Rica, so do yourself a favor and try something other... More
