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

Good, basic Mexican food. Very reasonable prices; good service. The food is pretty authentic; nice size portions. Bar is available. Good for both friends and families with children. Always hopping. Nice exterior and interior architecture. Plenty of free parking behind the restaurant.

This restaurant was just beautifully decorated with hand-painted murals on the dining room walls. It really adds to the atmosphere! Many great menu selections - your typical Mexican menu. Service is outstanding and prices are cheap, so we dine here monthly!

When coming here, don't expect authentic Mexican food. Everything on the menu was very Americanized and they didn't even have corn tortillas on the menu. Have no fear, however, you can get them if you ask. Our service was very poor from the start. Our server took a very long time to get to our table, and while he was... More

We went with a party of 12 & felt service was just OK. Not a very busy night for them but we had to ask twice for drink refills & more chips. Food was just average but the Margaritas were great!
