This place has awesome service and great food, cold beer and the prices are reasonable. So good we went back a couple more times. Real Mexican cuisine.

This is great little street restaraunt. Quaint and traditional, with fresh fish and fresh tortillas.

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

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.
