I was introduced to this gem of a restaurant a couple of years ago when a friend held a baby shower there. It was so good we have been back several times since. Tonight we celebrated my Birthday there. AS always the food was fantastic and the service wonderful. I felt as if I were visiting the home of a... More

I think this is the fourth restaurant we've been to over the years at this location. All have been excellent. Three have closed. I hope the fourth time is the charm because we really liked Chichimecas. The food is authentic northern Mexican, the sangria is to die for, the service is exemplary, the decor is bright and cheery, and the... More

I had reservations somewhere else and then saw what looked like an authentic Mexican restaurant...I mean how can you pass that up??? Canceled my reservation and rebooked here...what a bad decision. It started out that they didn't have lemon for my water! Alone that would not have been an issue, but it kept getting worse. I LOVE guacamole, but we... More

We decided to check out this place on a Sunday with some of our friends after reading the Yelp reviews. Everything we ordered was so delicious. The fajita taco as well as shrimp tacos were very good and filling. Mojitos were top notch. Leave room for dessert with tres leches cake. Ambience is enhanced with live music that we really... More

Pretty good Mexican food although the value was not good at all. Prices were reasonable although not when you saw the serving size. A minute portion of rice and beans accompaniment for the mains. Guacamole good but still for 12 there was nothing there and not spicy as asked for. Ambience and service good but would I recommend or go... More

Server could barely understand us so couldn't answer questions we had, although he thought he did. The guy who brought us to our table seemed to be drunk and hovered way too long after seating us. It was as bright as a cafeteria and was extremely loud. The food looked and tasted like it came from a frozen food package... More

5 of us went to Chichimecas for my friends birthday. We chose a table upstairs and they had a live musician playing. The margaritas were fantastic as well as the fresh guacamole. The appetizers were delicious and we couldn't finish our meals because the food was so good. Would definitely go back again.

Thank Janine R
