Good Mainstream Mexican Food

My wife and I had dinner here and based on the other reviews, we kept our expectations moderate. We were pretty surprised by the quality, variety and taste of the foods offered. We were greeted quickly and had our chips and salsa almost immediately. Great thin crispy chips. We ordered the Chile... read more

I am so glad we ignored the poor reviews and tried Edchada's for ourselves. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and seated immediately. Our drinks and chips & salsa arrived quickly. Lots of items on the menu to choose from. Our servers were very pleasant, and the food was also delivered in a timely manner and was very good.... More

My husband thought it was pretty decent. But I was unsatisfied. I ordered the shrimp tacos and they fall apart and had no taste that stood out. I also asked for bean dip for my chips and they looked at me like i was insane. Wont be going here again.

Locals said the chips and salsa were great and they were right. We had very good food and drinks here and the service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant is located at the center of 29 Palms, convenient to most hotels.

Large choice on the menu - variations of burritos, tortillas, fajitas, chili, etc. I had a chicken burrito and a green salad to start. The salad was disappointing, mostly composed of iceberg lettuce - I haven't seen that in years - and bottled dressing. The burrito was very good, and a generous size. My husband had the beef chili with... More

The food and service is excellent. It has been a while since I have had such tasty Mexican food. The locals are friendly and offer excellent tips about 29 Palms.

Edchada's serves good Mexican food, particularly at lunchtime (limited menu & fast service requirements?). Otherwise it can vary between average and very good. The food is just a bit bland for Mexican fare, perhaps in deference to American tastes. Service also can vary between pretty good and very good.

Had dinner and it was excellent. I had the beef enchilada and beef taco combo plate and it was outstanding. The marguerita was blended and frothy, excellent. Will return for sure.

Nothing special but good basic Mexican-American food at a good price. Spacious dining area and comfortable booths. Service is friendly and professional. Generous portions.
