Once every week

Love the food, the decor, the friendly wait staff and the prices. It's right in the heart of Old Town Buda one block off of Main.

Chavelo's is our favorite Mexican food. We love the atmosphere of this small but quaint restaurant where Everything is SO GOOD! As Buda grows, so does their list of places to eat, but Chavelo's is best!

We eat here frequently and have always enjoyed it. The wait staff treat you like family. The food is great and served quickly. If we don't have much time we order breakfast tacos and go pick them up. They are well stuffed and very tasty!

I ate the three beef enchiladas lunch. It tasted very good and was served very hot (Tempature-wise), The atmosphere was good and the service was fine. The restaurant was kind of hard to find. Our GPS sent us to the back entrance. This quaint restaurant is very well known by the locals and was packed when we arrived for lunch.

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
