If you prefer the generic Americanized Mexican food then this is the place for you! They don't even use white cheese and serve hamburgers. It all has a good taste but is not very authentic. However they do have an awesome salsa bar with all...More

This is one of our favorite places to eat. Always good food and great service. We love places that have big enough booths for our family to sit comfortably at and still get to eat our food without knocking each other out with our elbows...More

We ordered a platter that had two tacos, a burrito, beans & rice. The meat in the burritos (I got chicken & my husband got pork) tasted as if it was potted canned meat & they were about 4 inches long. I don't care for...More

I've been going to Don Chilitos since my wife and I first discovered it while we were dating. For the curious, that would be about 1972. We didn't live in Kansas City then, so we didn't visit regularly. Some 25+ years later, we moved to...More
