Not only was the food excellent, the service was absolutely wonderful! Thank you Rosa for being so pleasant and attentive! After a minor incident, Rosa alerted the manager, Ayden. He promptly came and spoke to us. He apologized, as did Rosa, and they were most...willing to do something for us to make up for it even though we told them it was unnecessary. Would definitely recommend Chretin's.More

Fantastic fresh made by your table guacamole. Mixed fajita’s were a great value with excellent taste. The Cadillac margarita made my wife most happy.

Everything was fried. I ordered the taco special and they wouldn't let you mixed the fillings. It was either 4 beef or 4 chicken no half and half. All 4 were fried and really greesy. I also ordered the tortilla pizza which was actually very...good and very cheesey.More

We are here on 12/12 and had a combo plate, a chili verde pork and margaritas. The restaurant itself is in need of a face lift but I tell you what, the food sure was good! I’d definitely eat here again. Carmen did a good...job of waiting on our table too!More

Excellent, as always. I first ate at Chretins during my first deployment to the Air Station in 1976. Subsequent military trips through the early 90’s always included multiple evenings at their restaurant. After retirement business trips and vacations provided many opportunities and presently wintering in...a Yuma RV park and made a point of being at Chretins on the first night in town. Yes, there have been many changes over the years in location and menu but they still provide a quality product with great service at a reasonable price. Chretins has always been overly welcoming to their military customers and has become nearly legendary because of it. Many thanks to the family, the management and staff over the years, you are appreciated. I’ll be back soon!More

Our family went there to celebrate my sister's 42nd wedding anniversary and were easily accommodated (10 people). The food was excellent , as always. I had the steak fajitas and they were the best I've ever had. Served piping hot on a cast iron skillet,...steam rising and the aroma filling the room. Our server, Aida, was friendly and efficient with a great sense of humor. Superb service.More

I grew up here and ate at this restaurant as a kid. Sadly not the same now. Currently catering to the snowbird and military population. Definitely not what I'd call authentic cuisine. Don't ever come on a Sunday during snowbird season unless you want to...wait a long time for your food.More

We ate here after arriving in town for a funeral. Our server, Jennifer, was beyond top notch. The food and our overall experience was so good, we brought our extended family back for a group dinner the next night. Jennifer accommodated a party of 19...with very little notice. The entire family raved about their meals and the service.More

Every road trip thru Yuma, we stop here for lunch before continuing on our way. We have never been disappointed. Service is always stellar and the food is delish! Plus, they are big portions. The freshly hand made guacamole is just great and makes the...meal a delight. There is a buffet on Sundays that we will try to work into a road trip someday.More
