So so food

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!

Nice place to stop in for some good Mexican food in Germantown. Good family atmosphere and they have recently updated the interior decoration with a new Mexican mural. Prices have increased a bit, but still reasonably priced. The outside patio area is nice during warmer weather.

Reasonable prices and even more affordable during lunch hours, a full bar with many choices and speedy service, even when busy.

We have visited this restaurant for years, but no more. The food was always a generous portion with good flavor, but since they opened another restaurant, the quality (and flavor) are not worth the money. We won't go back.

Very loud. They charge for extra chips and salsa! Margarita's are just ok. Food is not very exciting.

La Chimenea is a favorite local resturant for great Mexican food. Service is always great. The food is always delicious. And the margaritas... In the summer, we like to dine on the pattio that surrounds a large fireplace. Plus, there are two dining rooms when the weather is too cold outside. Hector and his team do a fantastic job making...

I can always count on La Cimenea. Every time I have gone, the food is great! I think the food has improved over the years. They also have awesome margaritas! Prices are ok. I like that they added in the option of getting just 2 of an item instead of 3. Less is more sometimes!

I have been to La Chimenea and it never was authentic Mexican food but it used to be better than now. It doesn't matter how busy they are food is always just ok. The selection is not great either. Prices are ok, Atmosphere is good.

Taco Bell with a bar. I think that just about everything here comes out of a jar or a can except the guacamole but that lacks flavors too, cilantro does not compensate for salt, lime and tomato. The new menu is underwhelming, 'combination plates' seem to be 2 or 3 of the same thing. The mole sauce lacks depth and... More
