I was disappointed at the place and perhaps I was expecting more based on the reviews. We had the Tacos al Pastor but the marinade did not taste anything like pastor. The steak tacos were bland. The fish tacos were better in the Style of...Baja California with breaded fried fish and would be my recommendation. I also liked very much the Street Corn as well. The place is nice, hip and the staff was fabulous. However my reason to come was the food and was just simply average.More

Even though they are known for their empanadas, I keep going back for their fish tacos. Their coconut cilantro drizzle is to die for. It has just enough sweet and spicy to keep me happy. Their shrimp tacos have shrimp that is cooked on a...buttery garlic sauce. The bowls are huge and definitely worth the money. I go every time we are in the area.More

We wanted a fresh, light & tasty meal.... it ticked all the boxes! We visited the store in W Taylor street. Shared a meat and a fish taco and a beef burrito. All were delicious. This is mainly a take out facility with some seating....Kitchen (I peeped in) is clean & well organised. We took our own vino. A great meal.More

I had lunch at Chilangos and it was one of the best lunches I had in the area. The staff were great, it is essentially fast food, so you are served at the counter and have the option of eating in. The food was good...and there are lots of options. Definitely worth a visit.More

We sampled chips and salsa, shrimp burrito bowl and various tacos. All were delicious! Quick service too.

The menu here is simple but the flavor is Ka-Pow! Love these empanadas, the crust is divine. The tacos are authentic corn tortillas with fresh ingredients in every bite. Other menu options like taco salads are available and equally delicious. On the Italian side of...the tracks, this is worth stopping for. Staff is genuine and friendly. They have a wonderful selection of freezes, fruit juices and soft drinks. Make this your next meal! #scrumptiousMore

Was wanting some real Mexican food and not one of the National chains with MexiMerican. I had a fish taco which was out of this world good and a steak taco which again was awesome. Both ere on the normal soft corn tortillas and of...course not Americanized with cheese. I also tried two pastor empanadas and let me tell you these were the best I have ever had. They had three types of sauces, one mild which was ok one sweet that I did not try and the spicy one which was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant and if you are in the area, eat here as it will not disappoint you!More

A take-out regular for us when visiting family. Always so tasty and really flexible in configuring anything any way you want it. The place is always bustling!

Chilango is right down the street from me, and we order take out from there rather frequently. The best thing about Chilango is by far the empanadas! They have quite a variety, and sometimes that's all I order. They also have very good tortilla soup....My husband and I have also tried tacos, burritos, and tortas, which are all good/decent, but it's the empanadas that keep me coming back for more.More
