Awful food with runny beans and dried out rice and gooey sauces. Not at all like Mexican food but more like what people think it is who have never had it.

The food is great for what it is, strip mall Mexican food. Its not super authentic and the prices are steep but if you just want Mexican to cure your craving this place is it.

I'm from Southern California so was very pleased to find this authentic Mexican food restaurant. The chicken rolled tacos were huge and so filling...I only ordered the two and it was way more than enough. Do ask for their "hot" salsa if you like it that way. Kid friendly, comfortable and I'll definitely be back.

This was my first time dining at Chapala Mexican Restaurant. We had lunch today, 12/18 and it was delicious (I had the chicken fajitas). My brother lives in Eugene and he suggested we meet him there. Located in the Oakway Mall surrounded by lots of department stores, grocery stores and other restaurants....its a pretty busy shopping center but worth the... More

The restaurant was packed and the staffed moved quickly to sit parties as quickly as possible. The food was so delicious and authentic. It was my birthday and I did not want the fuss of the singing etc and the staff was supportive of that. the meal was very reasonable and worth every penny

Lovely atmosphere, beautiful presentation, accommodating servers and cooks but requires creativity to eat well vegan. I had an enchilada with green sauce stuffed with sauteed vegetables which were crisper than I like, holding cheese. It was good otherwise. There are better options for vegans who want Mexican Food in Eugene.

We lived in Mexico for a number of years, and know good Mexican food when we see it. This isn't .... it is just an average Americanized version. Wife and I shared a chicken fajitas for 2. Had sufficient chicken, and onions, but practically no peppers. Service only adequate. Our friends were also disappointed.

Chapala's is at a shopping mall. We chose to sit out on the patio which was a nice setting. The weather was gorgeous, which helped the experience. The food was standard fare and we had chile rellenos, enchiladas, rice, beans...yadda-yadda. Standard and palatable but not noteworthy. Once we were sated we took the rest-n'-residue home and doctored it up the... More
