Authentic Mexican food. My husband and I stopped by for lunch today to enjoy carne asada tacos. They were perfect. Hot, fresh and tasty. Sampled horchata as well and it is house made and delicious.

El Chilito is definitely Canby's best restaurant. I have never been disappointed here. The carne asada tacos are the best in the area (including Woodburn/O.C./Molalla/Silverton), and the al pastor is also top notch. I always wash my tacos down with a large cup of their excellent horchata -- IMO, it's prepared perfectly. If you want the real deal, give it... More

The only downside to this establisment is indoor seating. They have outdoor seating available which helps but I recommend getting your food to go and checking out Molalla State park while you dine. As far as food goes, the quality is outstanding so you can't go wrong with any choice on the menu. The service is on point even with... More

We had $1.50 tacos for our first time here. The little tortillas were perfect not soggy at all. The meat was fantastic and they were very authentic. We can't wait to try one of their meals which were so reasonably priced.. This is worth the stop !!

Seriously good food at crazy low prices and a super friendly staff. If you're in Canby, this is as good as it gets....at any price.

I tried every kind of taco. They were $1.50 apiece. Super reasonable, small tortillas but a nice big portion of filling, not greasy at all, lots of sauce options. It was delicious. Maybe the asada was best, but the al pastor was pretty awesome too. They even did traditional carnitas. I wish I lived closer, I'd be back so often!
