Great as always!!!

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... read 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.

We liked the nachos and burritos. Also had good priced picture of margaritas. Good friendly service. We would certainly go back.

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

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
