Chips are great; Food bland and not spicy

Chips were great. Service was decent. My food was more salty than I wanted and not as spicy as I wanted. Margaritas were OK - - not strong at all. Rice is average as were the refried beans.

My hopes were high after reading the TA reviews but another site identified health dept inspection problems: roaches and food freshness - - so I naturally got more cautious. Some said food was salty as I noticed. I'd say it was not bad for this part of the world - - more flavor than Taco Bell. Really good chips. Service... More

Love the new look. Opens the place up. The food is good. Fajitas sizzle every time and the portions are ample. The chips are warm. I think the salsa is a bit thin but others in the family like it. The burritos are very good as well. Prices are reasonable.

Cholula's is probably one of my favorite places to eat. The staff is always pleasant, the food is good and the prices fall within your budget. The restaurant was always clean but in need of a little TLT. However, they recently remodeled and it's now even better than ever.

I love going here and they are so helpful with a little one. Also they have great food and you get it pretty fast as well. The decoration is a little shabby but the food makes up for it.

This is definitely the best Mexican restaurant in Shelbyville. They serve authentic Mexican food, the portions are generous, and the food well prepared. There is little to no ambiance, a pretty bare bones establishment, but if you're looking for good Mexican, this is it. The waiters are friendly and the salsa and chips are excellent! Try the chulupa Texana, very... More
