If you are in the mood for a plate of reasonably priced, heavy, Mexican classics, this is your place. You'll leave stuffed to the brim. You may be disgusted with yourself after the meal (I often am when I eat here), but you know what you're in for when you walk in the door. The service is consistently friendly, and... More

And the rest of the staff has to make up for it. We went 8/20/2014 at 12:30 if any manager happens to read this and want to "help her" with her manners. We went to the mall location and the weather was perfect for outdoor dining. Wait staff was not attentive and didn't refill our chips or salsa but did... More

Went to the one on Willamette & 29, had a coupon which I asked if they would honor when I first entered the place. The girl at the front said it was not good for Fridays but she would check. She came back and said she thought they would honor it but that they still had it in the back... More

Recently went to location at the mall. It was OK. Typical mexican fare. Service wasn't as attentiive as it could have been and our pina colada was weak. The kids were happy with their meal and it was a spacious location and comfortable, just not amazing food.

The food was good though it did seem typical. It was served hot and we were well attended to throughout the meal.

I use to eat here all the time but the food and service has gone down hill fast . Yesterday I ordered chicken crema enchiladas . I thought they gave me the wrong thing because crema is white but this was yellow and filled with oil . After I took a bite I know what they did . On top... More

The best thing apaout Chapala Mexican Restaurant is a very weird looking tree/cactus in front. It cheers me up when I see it. Food - OK nothing spectacular, rather the same foods one finds in most retaurants. Parking - absolutely great, love a rsnt with its own parking lot. Clean? Very. Prices? Nice middle of the road, which is remarkably... More

The food here is average, but the atmosphere is decent and the service in the bar is excellent. The free nachos are a huge plus! Call first to make sure of the days, but I think it's M-Th 4-6.

We love south of the border food. We eat here frequently. During the summer months at the Oakway restaurant on Wednesday evenings you are treated to outdoor entertainment while you sip your drinks and down yuor chips.

Excellent chips & salsa. Huge plate of good food - ate about a third & brought the rest home for dinner the next day. Excellent service. Would go back again.
