Monday Night Happy Hour Can't Be Beat

On Mondays, the Happy Hour goes until Midnight and has great options for everyone. On multiple occasions I have tried the $2 bean tacos, the guac and rice, the guac and chips, the vegetarian sushi, the mushroom quesadillas and the margaritas. All items were fantastic! I have to say as a... read more

I don't like Chino Latino. I think it tries to be too trendy and the food is boring to me. I would much rather pick a different place, sorry. For how busy it can be and how much it costs, it doesn't appeal to me.

Checked out this place for happy hour having gone on a recommendation from a good friend and I wasn't disappointed. Drinks were well made and the appetizers very tasty. Probably wouldn't go back for a meal as the prices are quite high, but the happy hour is very reasonable.

We brought our 3 kids (ages 12, 16, 18) and we used valet parking which was great - especially on the cold night. It was a crazy happening and loud atmosphere (which means don't go if you want a romantic dinner). Truth be told I think it's a younger crowd restaurant that included a very beautiful and long bar.

We love the atmosphere at Chino Latino - family-style servings, lively crowd, good service. We celebrated my step-daughters 21st birthday in December. I also celebrated my milestone birthday last July by hosting a party in their private dining room. We have a lot of choices in Minneapolis and this is one of our favorite places. We think the food is... More

I brought my small staff and their SO's to the restaurant last Saturday night. I have been there once prior. Only 2 others of the 7 had been there before as well. We were seated on time at a table that easily sat all of us. What I really liked about this restaurant choice is diners are able to hare... More

We have gone to Chino Latino several times and our last visit was perfect. The food was excellent and our waiter, Charles, did a great job. We spent three hours at Chino eating, drinking, joking ... just having a great time. The highlight of the night for me were the Bang Bang Firecracker Wings, which I hadn't tried before. Note...

My husband and I love this restaurant...stumbled across it years ago and have a great meal anytime we return. So many dishes are our faves. S'mores for dessert was a hit! Looking forward to returning soon.

My friends took me here for my 60th. It was a lot of fun. My name was on the menu! There are sparklers or lighted ice cubes in the drinks. The Bloody Mary's are pretty damned spicy but good. The place is big and popular and the menu is huge; much to pick from! I've been here several times and... More

We were not impressed. The door from outside is unmarked, as are the restrooms. So good luck finding either. We had a large group so there were many options ordered, chicken, pork, several appetizers. None were good. The service and price weren't bad, but I won't go back.
