Good food, Excellent Price

This is a classic small-town Mexican restaurant. Come hungry, leave happy. The dishes are large and well-done, the prices excellent. This is a great place to take the family or a large group. The parking lot can fill up, but Buda is a small town so there will always be plenty of parking just... read more

The average Mexican restaurant has pretty much the same barbacoa as any other restaurant. I'm almost certain they all have the same supplier. So when I go to a place that has a cut above, I'm thinking maybe that's not entirely true. This place has really good barbacoa, and of the other two items I try on my first visit... More

This town has several choices for Tex-Mex but Chavelo's is consistent, tasty and a fun little atmosphere. Parking fills up fast so time your lunch or dinner to get a spot.

We were undecided where to go have breakfast this Sunday and everything was packed. I looked up local restaurants and found Chavelos , we decided to try it and we loved it. It's as authentic to Mexican food as your gonna get. Definitely a Sunday tradition.

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.
