Had not been here in several years and a bit apprehensive but found food to be excellent. Party ordered 4 different meals and there were no disappointments. Guacamole was not as spicy as some but still tasty. Told normally made at the table but due...to staff shortages made in the kitchen for us. Carmen was an attentive waitress, very kind and polite. Was obvious that she was handling many tasks and we understand service delays in this post Covid environment with many businesses still struggling to fill jobs. We appreciated that there was signage posted in the dining area about the staff shortage and asking patrons for patience. The delicious food was worth the delivery wait and we're glad we chose Chretins for our anniversary meal.More

We were a party of 7 at 3pm on a Saturday, not particularly busy. It took over an hour to get our food. Evey our drink orders were slow. Not at all happy with the service. The food was not great either. The only thing...at the whole table that anyone liked was the Enchiladas. Taco Salad was served in a Greasy shell, Nacho fires were over cooked and meat dry, mostly fires with nothing. It is expensive for what portions you receive. We all agreed we would not return.More

Chretin's is not where you think of when you go out for breakfast, but it is definitely w must try. The serve breakfast Thursday - Sunday starting at 7 AM. I had chilquiles and they were delicious ! I had a couple of Irish coffees...to wash it down. They also have great lunch and dinner as well. If you're really hungry, try the combination plate.More

I had the taco combo. This is a step above taco bell. or maybe American Mexican food? I live up way up north of the border in Minnesota and have had better tacos/mexican food here. Super disappointed.

walked from the hotel to this mexican restaurant. Food was only so-so, not typical delicious food. Also margaritas were bad. Very weak, not very large and cost $7.50 each. I would not go here again.

Getting ready for a weekend of bowling. Arizona State Women’s Championship in Yuma. Came down from Phoenix to be ready for Saturday. This restaurant looked good to try. Taco salad with shredded beef was good. Area hers was very good too. The third meal in...our party was a chicken supreme burrito which was also very good. Nice atmosphere and friendly service.

Showed up to try the place, but name on a list. Said it was 30 minute wait. They won't give you an electronic device to page you or send you a text. We wandered around the outdoor seating area.15 min later we walked in to...sit inside. Never called us. We finally asked and the snippy girl said She called us 15 minutes ago. We certainly never heard her. She put us at the bottom of the list... again. Blaming us for the issue. Great Service from this place. I find the attitude of someone I'm purchasing crazy. I can get treated like crap anywhere. GoneMore

There were four of us and none of us Enjoyed our meal. The chili verde dinner had a scorched flavor, the combination plate came with food that looked like it was purchased at Sams club and the chili rejenos were so breaded and tasteless. The...refried beans were like a bean paste. I am not sure why this restaurant is open but we sure will not go back.More

Mixed reviews... went with some buddies here during COVID, had to wait about 1/2 hour to get seated, no big deal. They allowed us to wait by the bar and have a beer. We were not fans of the chips or the salsa, thought the...chips tasted like cardboard. I had the mixed fajitas and everything tasted great, one buddy had enchiladas and he said his was excellent. The third buddy is the mixed review portion. He ordered 2 soft shell beef tacos, and for starters it showed up as 2 hard shell tacos. The tacos were very blah and had little to no flavor. If we are in the area we will probably go again but won’t have the tacos...More

Not the best for combination meals but ordering a la cart items is about same price as ordering as a combination plate. Their salsa is good and you can order a hotter green sauce for chips which is really good. Also for tacos you have...a choice of chopped meat or ground meat beef. Of course can also have chicken also. Both either folded or rolled.More

I was in town for a meeting and, as often happens, I was hungry. Right near my hotel was this place and I am addicted to Mexican food! Give me guacamole and chips and I am in heaven! The restaurant is a legendary local haunt....I'd never heard of it, but, "location location & Mexican food" instant "I WANT THAT! I enjoyed a huge carne asada burrito, smothered in red sauce and served with a side of sour cream. To be honest, the burrito was bigger than my stomach! The service was great, the staff was friendly and even with limited seating rules there was no wait for a table. The burrito was delicious and the costs were very reasonable.More
