Great Mexican food

The place is a small hole in the wall, nothing even close to fancy. The food is what everyone comes for. The sauces, chips etc are made there and the dishes are freshly done. Very good

Best chips and salsa - ask for the cheso cheese too! I can just each the chips and order 1 taco and I'm full. The Tacos are really large - and amazingly good. The beef is done a little differently - and it might be the best I've ever eaten! Seriously - it's great. I tried the burrito - and... More

Stopped in after living in the area several months. Is definitely one of those "little hole in the wall" type place. Waitresses were friendly, service was prompt and the food was great. This will be one of our regular stops for sure.

We have been eating at Chico's for three years now and every time has been wonderful. Everything is homemade from taco shells to salsa. Portions are plentiful and so good. Staff are friendly.

We arrived around 1:30, the place was real busy and the hostess was no were to be found. A server finally greeted us and found us a table . The overall condition of the Restaurant was dirty, very dated and run down. I went to the men's room to wash my hands, I was shocked by how clean it was.... More

My husband and were sort of rooked into going here - we were staying in Welaka on a summer Monday and Tuesday and all the local restaurants are closed during these two days during the summer. We had just run up the road a bit and were hungry so we stopped here. When we saw the moldering fountain out front... More

We won't be back.. Bottom line food price too high for what you get..I'm a Foodie and eat at what feels like thousands of retaurants. The waitress did a good job and were friendly. Here's the deal. The price is extremely high for what you get. My wife and I ate there and the bill for dinner was $33.00 with... More

The building looks a little "rough", but they have improved some. Once you get inside and taste the food, you won't think so much about the building. The food is consistently GREAT and the chips and salsa BEST we've had. Someone said the wait staff comes and goes, but we've found they stay the same....just a few part timers and... More

I was here once, and after seeing a roach crawl across the table, that was the last time I went here. The building is about ready to fall apart and the kitchen crew can be a bit shady. I would definitely stay away from this place. They can't keep wait staff....they don't pay them enough I think and makes me... More
