We have been going to Chapala since they opened several years ago. Salsa is the best and the chips are the perfect thickness. Bean dip is a good appetizer, a mix of queso blanco and refried beans. Guacamole is always fresh and tasty. I have had everything on the menu and my fall back is the Burrito Roqueta. Braised carnitas... More

This restaurant is a little bit far from regular and it's on a street that is harder to get to due to the poor design of the junction with the I-35 exit. However, the food is good, price is reasonable, service was good, and the whole experience was just very pleasant. This may become a Mexican restaurant to go to.... More

If we go Mexican, we go Chapala. The food is always consistently good. They get you to your table quickly and waste no time getting chips, salsa and drinks to you. The food arrives at the table quickly as well. It is colorfully and attractively arranged on the plate - as much a feast for the eyes as the tummy.... More

We enjoy our meals when ever we get a chance to visit. The service is prompt & friendly. We have been going there since it opened & have had good experiences every time.

Great food and lots of it! Really feels and tastes like an authentic Mexican restaurant. Lots of Chipala regulars in our group. None of us have been disappointed in any of the dishes. I like hot food and made the mistake of saying "Don't you have any sauce that is hotter?" I think that they took it a a challenge.... More

Food is very good. Some days it's better than others but I've never had a "bad" meal there. The chips and salsa is very good too.

Moved back to Olathe in December after being away 4 years. Yup, Chapala was as good as we remembered it to be. Friendly staff, fast service and the best chips and salsa every time. Chips are warm and crispy without being too greasy or salty. We would base all our other visits to MX restaurants on 'well, it wasn't as... More

Great place to take the family, especially if you have small children. You'll be in & out of there in no time with a full belly. Food is good, service is great.

I was ecstatic when salsa became the number one condiment in the US many years ago. With Mexican food popularity has come the Tex-Mex restaurants like Chapala. Friends and family frequent this establishment. It is great for small families or large groups. The food is always flavorful and decor nice and bright! I tend to judge a Mexican restaurant for...

We "discovered" Chapala's shortly after they opened, when it still sort of looked like an American diner inside. We were amazed by the delicious food & friendly servers. We've eaten here for years & keep going back. Sometimes we have to drain our taco a bit (early on so the shell doesn't break). Then we eat each & every bite.... More
