Really good food and drinks. Friendly service. And very reasonably priced. Good portions (but I'm told this is timing issue). Skip if you're vegetarian. Would go back for sure.

We stopped by for breakfast and, once again, the food and service were fabulous. I had Chilaquiles with eggs over easy, chorizo and nopales...best I’ve ever had. Really. My wife had a vegetable omelet and that was really good. And the prices were low, low,...More

I had the seafood soup and my husband had the Chile Colorado. Both the dishes were more than enough for us and allowed us to bring left overs. Good food at a very reasonable price.

We all had great food and excellent service. Try the Chile Verde and flour tortillas. The pork is so tender and tortillas are terrific!

During our recent visit to the Imperial Valley we had the pleasure of meeting friends at Las Chabelas for dinner. We were told that this restaurant started in a very small place as a pool hall and basically a taco stand. They said that it...More

We’d been here several times a few years ago and loved the food and the friendly service. Nothing has changed. Our lunch the other day was good, real good. My Special Quesadilla was perfect...flaky crust stuffed with creamy cheese. My shrimp ceviche was also good,...More

I'm a big believer in authentic Mexican food and love mom and pops places. This place had good Chile rellenos. Wasn't a big fan of the shrimp tacos. Went with healthier Grilled version, skimpy on the shrimp and could have used a bit more flavor....More
