A restaurant with a drive thru usually screams "Fast food". I decided to go in and see the place for my self. I sat at the bar and the owner brought me a menu. He offered me a beer while I browsed, offer accepted I sat and looked at the menu. I noticed that the place was full of Mexicans...well... More

Always stay at the Best Western on my way to Palm Springs and eat at Chilito's every time. The food is excellent. Eat at Mexican restaurants often and this is one of the best. Better than the best Mexican restaurant in Palm Springs. Great margaritas, excellent service and affordable prices. definitely will be stopping here again.

My wife and I ate here early on a Saturday evening. The service was good, the tamales were good and the margaritas were very good.. It is close to the Hampton Inn and we will return..

One time to find out and the second one to make sure, both times the food just did not work for me, I'm Mexican so I do know what I'm talking about. So no more of this place, the 3 stars is for the service, it was the only good thing about this place.

In my opinion for a restaurant the Chili Rellenos were killers, the cheese sauce was excellent and they were not hot (Chilli). As far as the rest of the food, it was very tasty, hot and good portions. The service was fast and the prices were very comparable to other mexican restaurants. Now for the noise, yes it was a...

Great Mexican food at a good price near motel, and we could watch the NFL game from our table. The local crowd at the bar was a bit too noisy for the two of us to have conversation at our table however.

Excellent Mexican food at an unbelievably affordable price. I would have been charged double the price for my fabulous chimichanga in a restaurant here in SoCal. Waiter was also wonderful and food came out very quickly. However, it was extremely annoying when someone went to the jukebox in the corner near the bar and decided to play a bunch of... More

The bartender at the hotel we were staying at recommended Chilito's. This restaurant was within walking distance from the hotel which was good even on a hot day. The food was good, typical for a Mexican restaurant.
