On our quest for good Tex-Mex we found something unexpected- great Mexican food. If you have never tried more authentic Mexican food, you owe your taste buds the opportunity. They were voted some of the best tacos in SE Michigan, if not the state.

Mexican Food done the right way. Very well priced, fresh, amazing food. Welcoming staff and also has free parking. Find it hard to go anywhere else for Taco's or Burrito's. Top notch!

Blows the socks off of all other Mexican restaurants. Smiling service-- eat lunch with the guys who order in Spanish and know the best food around.

Chela's is maybe my all time favorite place for good Mexican food. It's very casual, very small, and more of an in and out joint. So don't expect the full dining experience. And there aren't any Corona's or margaritas. But what there is is food...More

Went to Chela's while in town overnight as it was close by. Very impressed with the food. It is primarily a take out place with ordering/pickup at the counter, but has a small dinning room. The food was served quick and it was excellent, not...More

We were in town visiting our son who suggested the place for lunch. From the location and appearance outside I was skeptical and once inside even more so as there wasn't a place to sit, being all the tables were taken. This place is small...More
