Went here while staying at hotel across the street for business. Quick service, good food and very inexpensive. I got a delicious almost 3 pound burrito (chile rojo burrito) for about $9 and was completely stuffed. It was really good. Cheap beer too.

I went with my sister and her husband, who is generally a picky eater. The portions were large and the food was good. The place was packed but we didn't have to wait. It had a great atmosphere. The waitress forgot to bring us our check but other than that it was a good experience.

Just finishing a delicious meal Chile Rojo. Excellent food, very reasonable prices, pleasant employees, nice dining room and especially like that they have a patio as it is a lovely evening for being outdoors. I messed up my food before I remembered to take a photo, but shared anyway as TripAdvisor needs more photos from here:) Was absolutely delicious!

Ben and Mrs Too were leery of an expected rainstorm one night in Mt Airy. We felt we should change our planned dinner venue in favor of the well regarded Mexican restaurant right across the parking lot from our hotel. Actually, we reflected, it would be a task to remember the last time we had enjoyed real Mexican food, as... More

Saw the parking lot full when we arrived at the Comfort Inn across the street. We had already eaten dinner but said we would try it while in Mt Airy. Next night; parking lot full again but our schedule had us eating elsewhere. We figured it must be good! Finally made it over on our last night in town. WOW!... More

We live in NY & were attending an RV Rally in Mount Airy, NC that included our anniversary. We were very pleased with the food and service at Chili Rojo. We had a chicken fajita and grilled pineapple chicken. Both were hot but not too spicy.
