This is one of those out-of-the-way places that you don’t really notice from the street, but it has the best food in Troncones. We went back so many times when we were here in the spring and couldn’t wait to get there when we came...back after five days of driving it was the first place we stopped! Of delicious chili Rihanna‘s, fresh seafood, and great service. Also the best margaritas in town!More

You will quickly feel a part of the family at Chenchos. Food is delicious- we especially liked the chicken soup and the tortilla soup. Drinks are very good too- the frozen cappuccino frappe is great on a hot morning.

The lobster and fish was over cooked. Took over an hour to be served. It’s lobster was super chewy. I wouldn’t pay for it again. I would say this is a perfect example of an over rated restaurant. However the guacamole was lovely.

We were on a mission to try all of the local coconut shrimp in Troncones. The coconut shrimp and the sauce here at Chenchos is out of this world!

Clearly a local institution, the owner seemed to know many of his customers and the place was full. Good service, the food was not gourmet but very edible and generous servings, reasonably priced.

After reading reviews, I expected something special. I was alone and there was only one other party of five in the place. While the staff was polite and friendly, I was disappointed with the fish, the evening’s special. It was a bit greasy and surprisingly...bland. Veggies were over cooked but tasty. All in all, not someplace that rocked my world. There are other places that seem to do a more consistent job in the kitchen.More

Mexican food might be good but the fish was over cooked and so were the vegetables and it was overpriced.

Food was good and Chencho the owner was very personable and you can tell he genuinely cares about his guests. Sat down and chatted at our table for some time. Recommended!

We have been going to Chencho's every year since it opened and it just keeps getting better and better. The food is fabulous, ambiance lovely while keeping the Mexican flavor and service wonderful. It is truly a family affair. Now all three kids work there...when they are not away at school. Come enjoy the best of Troncones.More

I give an A+ for super service, friendliness and consistent food quality. Our group thought Chencho made the best Margarita in Town. The flavors of all the dishes were layered and complex. I wish I had the recipe for the sauce on the Shrimp Cocktail....The Shrimp were very tender. We ate here 4 times and the Guac is the best! Can't wait to come here again.More

We had dined at Chenchos years ago and did not become fans then. Yesterday night we decided to give it another try, as it is a fave restaurant to some of our friends that we trust. We are so glad we did! The menu is...extensive and has options for different tastes including vegans. We settled for shrimp chiles rellenos and shrimp enchiladas. They were both delicious and very satisfying. Killer margaritas a perfect match. Service by Chenchos and his daughter was friendly and efficient. We definitely recommend it.More

You will find yourself at a small authentic Mexican Restaurant. The food is tasty and arrives to your table hot and fresh.

In Troncones, a small town with limited opportunity for establishments to exchange USD for pesos, you will need to pay with pesos. Which you should get before you come to Troncones.
