Great food -- off the beaten path

In Billings for biz... decided to check-out Hardin (about 90 minutes away) and had a wonderful meal at La Chalupa. As other reviewers have indicated, a small family-run operation... the teenage daughter who served us was a delight... and did a great job. The food is wonderful. As a Southern CA... read more

The owners are always friendly and work very hard (including the children) - somehow you always feel as though they know you and care. The food is good for a small town like this. Hubby and I usual share one of the combo plates of fajitas and it is plenty enough for the two of us.

**On Center Ave, not Crawford** Good food, very nice people. family run and busy for a Monday night but everyone was working very hard. Highly recommend. Had Steak Fajitas and Combo plate with tamale, enchilada, and taco. No beer and wine license -so you can bring your own beer!!

A family owned restaurant across from the movie theater on Main Street. A little tough to spot. Unfortunately they don't have a liquor permit. A cold beer would have been great after a long drive. The chili relleno/burrito combination was very tasty. My wife had the fajitas. It was massive. Seems to be popular with the local residents. A worthwhile... More

I ordered chili rellenos, a favorite of mine. Backing up, I am a local resident, 77 yrs old. To continue my tale there were no chilis but a one inch strip. I asked the server for an explanation and was told GET OUT NOW, which I promptly did. Too bad it used to be a fairly good place but $13.95... More

Stopped in Hardin after a long day of driving, and the hotel clerk suggested La Chalupa. Service was great and the food was authentic, tasty, and not greasy. Really enjoyed it and the price was right.

Service was OK. Food needed some more flavor. Pretty bland. I had the taco salad which was very bland. With more cheese and flavorings it had potential. Hubby had another dish that needed some spicing up for flavor. We went there once on the recommendation of the campground but won't return.

Decent, family-run Mexican food in Hardin. Good salsa. Very busy on a weeknight - so don't expect to eat and run.
