My Family, friends and I went to dinner on March 19th 2021. We were a big group they sat us in good time and the waitress was pretty nice. The only thing I would have to say after my experience at this restaurant is that...I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN! Here is the reason why... Our bill was over $1k, this waitress offered us a SPECIAL called "LA PARRILLADA" with included an assortments of meats she was pushy for us to get one since we were a big party we asked what it included and she told us so we decided to get 1 the only thing she forgot to mention was that the so called SPECIAL was $300. She also took the liberty in putting 2 orders of the "Parrillada" when we all has said 1. I am not sure what she thought or how she was us but that bill was ridiculous. OVER $1K for that was not worth it. No freaking way I will ever go back there. Waitress charged a TIP of $155 and the restaurant still charged us a surcharge of $30 for using CC or Debit card. Like who is going to be carrying $1k in cash. It was insane. The beef fajitas were Salty and I saw more onions and green peppers than meat. I would not recommend this place I'm sorry but that night, March 19th they lost me as a customer. They should train their waiters much better. Before this happened we had gone to dinner there too (it was a couple of nights before), March 15th and the waiter was also very pushy for us to get that same special "LA PARRILLADA" he kept asking and saying "C'mon guys its a great special" he asked my husband atleast 3xs for us to get it. thank god that time we did not say yes. The drinks were not good either more lemon juice in my Mexican martini. I believe that the restaurant gives each of the waiters something if they are able to sale that SPECIAL. Its wrong what both waiters did.More

My wife and I come back to casa chapala for tasty breakfast. They were really friendly and asked if they could take our temperature for safety reasons. Feel very safe environment during this time.

Casa Chapala is located at the NE corner of Highway 183 and Burnet Road. It's daily buffet is now one of our regular stops. But watch out, it is very difficult to not overeat . It begins with the unique experience of customized salsa. Watch...out for the hot, it is very spicy. The menu is very extensive, but it has been impossible for us to pass up on the $12 buffet. The buffet is very broad in it's selection with three types of enchiladas, three tacos, beef and chicken fajitas, salads, salsas, taco filings, menudo, and the queso is soooo good. All of the offerings are delicious, fresh and adequately supplied it is truly a fantastic eating experience.More

You have a wonderful staff of friendly, caring people. Lizette greeted us with hugs and Deanne waited on us with her usual efficiency. We also chatted with one of the owners, Lucinda. She and her husband Lupe are always so friendly. The Taco Salads were...excellent, as usual. I highly recommend this restaurantMore

Looking for a good Mexican Place and found Casa Chapala. The salsa, beans and chips as a complementary appetizer were a hit. Margaritas were tasty. The Shrimp in Garlic was wonderfully tasty. Unfortunately the accompanying grilled vegetables were soggy and mushy. My server was efficient...and helpful, checking back frequently. Not much atmosphere -- TVs blaring from around the bar which was quite lively at times. A solid choice for good Mexican food.More

I was a litle put off at the prices and when my taco salad came and was placed in front of me I wasn't very impressed. Must be the property taxes in Travis county that makes the price of things so unreasonaby high? The food...was good and the service was adequate and yes they have at least 200 different tequilas at the bar. The salsa was excellant!More

This restaurant has a great staff who are always very friendly and efficient. We love the coconut shrimp and taco salad. They are both excellent. The owners can be seen frequently stopping at tables to gauge the service. They now serve breakfast and we can't...wait to try the migas.More

The last time I went to a Casa Chapala restaurant was a few years ago. The food was great. The Research Boulevard location is huge, ready for big crowds and parties. Giovanni was a careful and attentive waiter. A lady came initially to our table...to prepare hot salsa according to our spicy request. She brought rich garlic tasing beans in addition to the spiced to taste hot salsa and tortilla chips. We strictly did happy hour. The nachos were delicious and my husband enjoyed 2 chicken chipotle open tacos on freshly home made type hot tortillas, prepared on site. We had fun eating, tasting, and taking in the atmosphere.More
