“Used to be worthwhile.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The spelling should be Chaguito's. This place made its reputation on good food and great bread. Now it is the complete opposite and I would NEVER recommend it to anyone I know. Too bad, I used to look forward to going there.

“good mexican fast food and a bakery - who knew?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

great fast mexican food that doesnt taste like fast food (like a certain national chain - ring a bell??)

love their tortas and wet style burritos

they have a nice little condiment bar setup with pico de gallo, salsas, cilantro, onions pickled carrots/onions and peppers plus some weird green avocado sauce stuff that is tasty but weird

oh and they have a bakery as well to get some fresh pastries to snack on later (okay who am I kidding they never make it out of the car...)

“Good authentic mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Loved their food, a bit crowded on a Sunday afternoon though. Great if you like authentic. And you can't beat the prices!

“AMAZING MEXICAN Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

This place was amazing! and sooo cheap! We came from NYC for a wedding and have never tasted such fresh and delicious Mexican food - they have an on site bakery with a myriad of local favorites and bake their torta breads fresh (which is what I had) - The torta just melted in my mouth and the hibiscus juice was refreshing on a hot day. If this place was in NYC - it would sell like hot cakes - Def worth a visit - best eatery off the beaten path - you won't be disappointed!
