This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is consistently very good and often surprisingly fast. Service is great and most everyone is quite friendly. Prices are more than fair. I highly recommend Chihuahua's!

This place use to be really good, now it's just ok. We would go more frequently but I can make better at home. It's good if everyone wants something different.

We keep going back because the food is so authentic. I love their chile releno and their chicken fajitas. You can ask for black beans instead of decried which I always do. They give you home made chips & salsa and they make excellent guacamole. Try the margaritas too! If you like spicy they will make one with jalapeños! Terrific... More

The food was OK. Decor above average. However, the wait staff rushed us to order, pay and leave. Not a relaxing, enjoyable experience at all.

This restaurant is quite large with a lot of different seating areas. Good for some large groups as well. Outdoor seating when weather permits. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Fast service and great food. Many meals to try. Take Out is also offered. Great place for birthdays or any other party time.

Depending on your waiter you may have an enjoyable time. A month so the waiter didn't like anyone in my group of friends and we were just trying to enjoy our evening after a long day at work and he was annoyed. This last week we had a great time. Our waiter was funny didn't act like we were an... More

We stopped by for a late lunch and we were all very happy. Good to satisfy everyone even a vegetarian. Good is always quick and hot. Service is great.

This place used to be a great Mexican food resturant. It has unfortunately, gone downhill. It is more like a fast food restaurant now. From the time we sat down and ordered our food arrived within10 minutes. One got the feeling that they wanted you in and out as fast as they could. The food itself is now mediocre not... More

We always stop in for a bite to eat when traveling South or North on I5. It's a treat. The food is always good and the wait is short. The staff are always friendly and attentive.
