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.

We have passed this establishment many times and finally decided to check it out and we are so happy that we did. An absolutely great place. The food is fresh, tasty and oh so good! It has become a favorite place for us to eat. Highly recommend to anyone!

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!

This is a cheap, authentic restaurant. It is one of my absolute favorites. It's satisfying every time. Be sure to stop in for lunch.

As the holidays have come and gone, we can start our return to a so called normal routine. During the rush we stopped and ate several times at El Chilito. The food was very good but service at times was slow do to the amount of people eating at the restaurant. Would recommend you trying out El Chilito!

I called in an order and was told it would take 15 minutes. I arrived 15 minutes later and stood there for another 20 minutes with no food. People who spoke Spanish seemed to get their food quickly, although I'm fluent in Spanish....

OK, up front, this place is small and has no atmosphere. It is likely you will eat outside on picnic benches. However, if you love good Mexican food, more homemade than any restaurant....eat here. I have been back twice since the original visit and will make it a regular stop when I crave this type of food. The ingredients are... More

This place is outstanding. The food is amazing and staff are friendly. I usually get take-out as there is very limited seating. Very authentic flavors and dishes. About the best food in Canby.
