My husband and I have been eating at Celias together for 37 years. Our first date was there and many family celebrations have followed. Our children have grown up with Celias. We all love the food and of course the margaritas.

Stopped here for a solo dinner to get my Mexican on and this place didn't disappoint. I know its a chain, but it still had a certain charm that made it not appear as such. The food was very good and the service was fast...More
