American dream story! Friends talked the owner into opening this restaurant years ago. It is well known & loved by locals, though a little tricky to find (parallel to Main St.). Free chips & salsa are the best & refills generous. We enjoy this Tex-Mex & friendly service regularly.

I'll pass on this one. My experience was not great. Waitress tried to seat us in front of the bathroom door, so our view during eating would have been of folks leaving the toilet. Nice. We asked if we could sit anywhere else and we relocated on the other side of the dining room. There were plenty of free tables... More

Better than all the other Mexican/TexMex places in Buda. A little hidden, but definitely a jewel. Will eat there again. Plus their portions are good without being huge

Ordered take out and man was it good. They gave us in house portions of food. The flavor is more Mexican authentic. The service over the phone was great and they answer all my questions without getting annoyed. Will eat there again on my next trip to Buda.

Came to Kyle, Texas for a wedding. Looked at the reviews and decided to give this place a try. Small place with little parking but very cute and great service, very friendly. We had the Migas and they were great, we got multiple breakfast tacos and all were pretty tasty. If we are ever in Buda again we will stop... More

We regularly eat here... Friendly, good food (including margaritas!), and reasonably priced. This isn't a fancy place, but so far, we've never been disappointed.

We just moved to Buda and believe in eating local when we can. We sat out on the patio they have and had a great time listening to the music. The food was awesome and a great value as well. We will be back for sure! I think we found our go to place for Mexican food!

The food was excellent. The soup comes in 3 different flavors all good. My husband ate guacamole there for the first time, He won't eat it else where. The service is friendly and very helpful. We look forward to eating at Chevalos when we visit Buda.
