Having grown up in the Mexican restaurant business I have high expectations. This place was average. Everyone told me to try it. I will find a better place. I went here with 4 adults and two young children. Fish tacos were over cooked. Al pastor tacos were overseasoned. Carnitas were okay just a little chewy from sitting in a warmer... More

For a traveler from Pennsylvania, it was nivce to get more authentic Mexican food. The burritos were great, as were the tacos. It's a good spot to stop for a quick lunch.

I split the breakfast burrito with a co-worker, that's how big it is. It was delicious. They have a nice selection of other Mexican breakfast items as well.

Right across the street from the Best Western, food tasted good & plenty of it, good prices. Inside the supermarket so you can kill two birds. No atmosphere to speak of, just tables & chairs inside a supermarket.

I've been going to chavez my entire life. I very rarely find something just as good for the same price. They are authentic and delicious. It has remained my favorite go to taqueria for 20 years. The employees are nice and fast with the food. Prices are decent depending on what you get.

Think about it - who's going to have fresher foods than a supermarket? Delicious well-priced mexican food. Wish they had more descriptions as to the difference between burrito and super burrito though.
