I have eaten here for years. Food quality is always good. Variety is good too. Recently I had the burrito norteno. Excellent. My only negative comment is a bit selfish I suppose. I wish there was an enchilada Chile relleno combo plate on the menu. Other than that, great service great food.

We loved Chelinos for YEARS! I ate there every week when they opened the one in Bricktown. Not this one. The glasses are dirty. The last time I had a fly in my water. Even when we told the waiter, he never brought a new glass. Not acceptable. Maybe he didn't understand me, but it was pretty obvious. Ok now... More

This is always one of my fave places being back in the city (I grew up here). Brother and I came. I had the chicken chimichangas with sour cream sauce. Absolutely WONDERFUL and gave half to my brother to take home, 2 huge changas. Their queso here is delicious as are their chips. We had a terrific gal serving us... More

Food was amazing and VERY generous portions! Service was excellent, even though it was extremely crowded when we visited. My friend was celebrating his birthday, so we did the "wear a sombrero while the staff sings to you" bit - all very fun. Great time

Great chips and interesting salsa and the cheese dip is ok. Had enchilada's with the usual rice and beans. Did not care for the whole beans because they did not taste done. Have had them before and were fine. Waiter was right on the spot for refills. Left when the musicians started because they were too loud for my tastes,... More

Our server (female) was very nice and attentive. The margaritas were good. The chips and salsa were ok and the cheese sauce did not look appetizing but I tried some to give it a chance, but did not care for it at all. I got the Chelino's special with enchiladas and tamales. It was pretty good. The best part was... More

Tasty food, always quick, inexpensive, friendly staff what more can you ask for! My Dr Pepper was never empty and the Sopapillas at the end are always perfect!

To start, we nearly walked out of this restaurant before we even sat down at our table. The hostess tried to put us in an area at the front of the restaurant facing a dirty alley where two workers sat with a bottle of cleaner and a fly swatter. When we asked to be seated at a different table and... More
