Hands down the best Mexican food in Fort Wayne! We come here all the time for Lunch with my co-workers and in the evening with the family. The Margareta's are awesome. I usually get the Verde Burrito with Carne asada Steak. It comes with fresh pico de gayo. Lots of Lunch and dinner specials and the fresh warm chip and... More

Whether you want to have a meal with the family, friends or a date with your loved one. The Don is a great choice! I have gone for many years because of good food, service and drinks. Always consistent, which is a must for this city. Oddly, my favorite item here is the tomatillo sauce for dipping and to add... More

The food was average, the chairs were uncomfortable if you were over 6'tall, the atmosphere was what you would expect, and our waitress was unfriendly.

Great food , and the margarita was good, very strong but good. Chips were ok and salsa was very good. The only complaint is that at times it seemed that only two of the many wait staff were actually working. The others just stood around and talked or avoided work. I'm sure she will enjoy the tip I left and... More

My husband was craving Mexican last weekend, and it's always difficult to choose where to go, because Fort Wayne has a number of decent choices, all with different strengths and weaknesses. Don Chava's won because of location and queso dip.It is part of the same family as Cebolla's, and their Queso dip is a must for us, as is the... More

We came as a family to celebrate my granddaughters ballet production. She did great and we came to celebrate. I got the margaretta and beef enchiladas, several got the fajitas, and taco dinner, and Queadilla(?). The food is great and you get a lot of it. We heard them celebrate a BD, and nice singing. It was loud and everyone... More

We ate here while visiting the neighborhood. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is good with big portions - I needed a carry-out box. The decor's nice, there's room for large groups, and the location is only a little ways up the road from the center of town. Prices are very reasonable. Recommended.
