The food tastes amazing and the service was great. The handmade tortillas are delicious and filling. I suggest trying a "Chaya con limón martini". The ambiance of the place is also very friendly.

We were suspicious after a bad experience elsewhere the night before but it turned out to be excellent. Tasty food, great service, delicious margaritas and super cheap. Would definitely recommend as a place to come and try local cuisine. Order the Chaya margarita!
