There's something very beautiful about Chapala. It might be the colorfully painted tables and chairs with bright, neon suns and moons. It might be the attractive male servers, cause um... yes. It might be the plating of the food that makes sure to capture a variety of red, green, and yellow to bring color to your chicken and beef. Maybe... More

First visit, it was excellent. Service was excellent and food delicious. I had the Carnitas Burrito with Mexican rice and it was one of the best I had in a long time. Wife had tacos and black beans. I tried the beans and they were really good, even on chips. Definitely would return again.

Seemed understaffed last night. Have never had to wait in excess of 25 for food to be delivered. Normally a great place to eat. Food is better than most and service is usually quite prompt. Will always return but get more servers to make experience better.

I chose this place based on a map search around the area I was going to be and saw the very high reviews. I was pleased to note there are other locations. It was a dinner on a Saturday at 4:30 pm with 5 adults who ordered different items. The chips and salsa were really good. The margaritas were tasty;... More

Noted this visit they have added a mariachi band on Wed at 630 pm. Took out of towner and had a great time. Staff is always the best. We just love this place. They keep the menu fresh with new dishes periodically. Great drinks too. Best carry out and I strongly recommend the special fajita dinner for two.

I can't believe I've never reviewed Chapalas before. This is a good little Mexican restaurant in a kind of nondescript location in Olathe. I used to lunch there regularly when working in the area. I've begun taking the grandkids and family there on occasional weekends, and they just love the place. It's very bright, colorful decor, chairs and tables. A... More

The food is always good and the service friendly. Never too busy to get a table. A typical KC Mexican restaurant.

Went here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. During lunch the place was busy, the service was great and the food was wonderful as well. Loved the lunch menu and plan to go back for dinner.
