Several friends met at Chretin's for dinner. We were a large group and they were kind enough to accommodate us on their patio. Beautiful night. The waiter was absolutely fantastic, handling a large group with the help of his coworkers, keeping everything spot-on. Unfortunately, although the food was not bad, it was not memorable. It was good, in that it... More

Use to like but must have new mgt or something. Took eight to eat there last night. Food was not good. Avacoda salad has no seasoning....just an avacoda mashed up. Totally tasteless. Ordered fajitas with shrimp, beef, chicken. Not making this up.....NO MEAT. Excellent waitress. They had her handling twice as much as she should have had to deal with.... More

Food was good staff was good but over worked. Bartender served us out on patio, and tended bar. This was too much for her, or anybody. Made service slow and meal unenjoyable.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch while we were running some errands and this happened to be on the way. It has a good location with easy access and parking. It is a newer facility so it looked well kept and was clean inside and out. We were there early for lunch and we're promptly seated given menus... More

The "since 1946" got my attention, so I went in. The chips and salsa came, chips were on the greasy side and the salsa was bland. I ordered the Molcajete and braced for a disappointment. Was I surprised. Not only it was a lot of food, it was delicious. Lots of flavor, good amount of heat, and tons of meat.... More

We were with a large group and they really didn't have a plan worked out to handle us. They hustled to get our drinks and after some period of time we finally got our food. The food was wonderful and I would recommend this place for a fun evening when in Yuma.

The food was very good but not too spicy which is good for a majority of their patrons. Our meal was quite inexpensive but was filling. The service was very good as well.

The service was great! The salsa is not mild, but delicious. We ordered the 1946 Chimichanga and Chikichorizo Burrito. The chimi was "nothing special" but the burrito was outstanding. We both ended up taking about 2/3 of our entrees home because they were HUGE.

Always a good deal for me when I can find a restaurant that does not use latex gloves! Saw this local restaurant in a RV brochure so decided to try since it was listed as a really good Mexican restaurant and we are always in search of the perfect Chili Verde Burrito. We arrived around 2 PM and was seated... More

We came here for dinner after driving by several times. It's a nice looking restaurant on the outside. The salsa they give you with the chips is bland, like spicy V8 juice with some stewed tomatoes mixed in. I had the Beef Fajitas. They consisted of beef, sautéed onions and bell peppers and corn tortillas. No guacamole, no sour cream,... More
