We went on a weekday evening and sat outside on their patio. Depending on which way you are facing, you may have a view of the neighbor's backyard, parking lot or trees. The food was average, service was good. Probably would not be on the top of my list for a return visit.

We visited this place after several recommendations and we're very disappointed in the food. Every item we ordered (2 apps and 3 entrées) was super salty and they melted cheese on everything which I assume was to mask the lack of quality and flavor. Margaritas were not great either although that seems pretty consistant at chain type restaurants like this... More

The food is great but you don't get very much for your money. Cute restaraunt and I love the outdoor tables. I have been here a handful of times over the years.

My wife and I have eaten there often. Both my son and daughter have eaten here and enjoyed it. One of my son's favorite Mexican Restaurants. The tortilla soup is a favorite of my wife. Very nice patio for summer eating. Wait staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. We eat here often.

Haven't been there in years, but visited tonight. Worst margarita I've ever had, and the food was just ok. Was disappointed and don't think I'll be back.

We visited La Chimenea on a busy Saturday evening, but were seated right away. We were given chips, salsa and water within seconds after we sat down, and our server greeted us with menus and took our drink order within just a minute or two. The menu was quite extensive and priced fairly. After placing our order, we received our... More

We frequent La Chimenea in Germantown quite often. The restaurant is a great place to gather with family and friends. It's not the closest Mexican restaurant to our house so for us to go further just to get Mexican food, it must be good. The food is always terrific! I have never had a bad meal here. I had the...

Saturday night with family to celebrate a birthday, eight of us. Our waitress was a gem. She was always smiling and never made us feel rushed. She never tried to hurry us or make us feel like we should leave so somebody else could have our table. Enjoyed our wine, cervezas, and cocktails with chips and salsa. (Too spicy? NO.)... More

Stopped by recently for snacks with extended family. Mango margaritas are good, as well as the pork & pineapple tacos, shrimp enchiladas,and everything else we tried. Be warned that the salsa you get w/chips is good - but the salsa's on the spicy side.

I have been to La Chimenea twice now. Both times were on a weekend, and there was no wait for a table, but it was not dead either. We had a reservation for just one of the occasions. The food tasted great, and there were a number of options. I especially liked the tableside guacamole service, where the guacamole is... More
