I can't believe I've never reviewed Chapalas before. This is a good little Mexican restaurant in a kind of nondescript location in Olathe. I used to lunch there regularly when working in the area. I've begun taking the grandkids and family there on occasional weekends, and they just love the place. It's very bright, colorful decor, chairs and tables. A... More

The food is always good and the service friendly. Never too busy to get a table. A typical KC Mexican restaurant.

Went here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. During lunch the place was busy, the service was great and the food was wonderful as well. Loved the lunch menu and plan to go back for dinner.

This is out "Go-to" Mexican Restaurant in Olathe. Everything is fresh - I have never had a bad meal here in the many years I have eaten here. My favorite dishes are the burrito roqueta or the chunky beef chimichanga. My daughter swears by the beef enchiladas with the cheese sauce and my wife will usually order a la carte.... More

My family visits Chapala at least once per week. I really like their fajitas, but I especially like the tacos de carne asada! The staff is exceptionally friendly, and the food is generally served quickly -- and always hot! I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.

I travel to Texas a lot, which has spoiled me when it comes to Tex-Mex and Mexican food. Two different people who had moved to KC from San Antonio recommended Chapala to me years ago and after one visit I was hooked. Good salsa, nice chips, salads are good, love the lunch specials. Always friendly service.

Just arrived in town and family and I met here. They promptly seated us. Longer waits on weekends from what I remember. The chips and daily homemade salsa was quickly brought to our table. The fajitas are ALWAYS awesome. The carnitas and enchilada trio were great. This is one of my most favorite restaurants in Kansas City for an anyway... More
