This is my absolute favorite restaurant! It has such a homey feeling and the service is always great. The margaritas are delicious as well. You never have to wait long to be seated and your food is brought out promptly, which by the way is delicious. If you become a regular like I am, don't forget to download the "SpotOn"... More

We have lots of choices for authentic Mexican food in the area. We go to Chihuahua's when we're looking for a comfortable experience, especially with others who aren't Spanish-speakers or as adventurous. The restaurant is always clean, the service fast and polite, the food hot and delicious, and the margaritas tasty. You can order anything from a hard shell taco... More

We live about a mile from this restaurant and frequently visit it with friends. The decor is very nice and looks almost like a genuine Mexican Restaurant in Mexico. The owner is very friendly (could be because we eat there so often) and the service we've had has always been good. I always like to start with one of their... More

We go to this restaurant for lunch regularly and even when we have less than one hour for lunch, they accomodate us. The food is great and the staff is very nice.

Sitting at the bar at Chihuahua's is one of the great perks of living in Maryland Heights. The grill of sizzing meat and veggies is worth it just for the aromas. Large and delicious margaritas are a total bonus. Wonderful and friendly staff completes the meal.

I'm not sure we ever put Chihuahua's Mexican in Maryland Heights in the upper echelon of Mexican restaurants (here or anywhere), but it was always convenient and had decent food. Our experience last night definitely prompted a new review. The restaurant has been a mainstay for a long time in Maryland Heights. It had been rumored that they were moving... More

Chihuahuas has fabulous food and the service is always fast and pleasant. It's kind of a hidden gem in Maryland Height and probably easy to miss if you aren't from the area. It's definitely worth searching for!

The first time I went here was with friends and it was okay the service was just okay. The second time was with my husband with a coupon that was for their restaurant from the coupon book the schools sell every year. They told us they don't accept the coupon and said they would just remove $4 from our bill... More

We enjoy this restaurant very much. The menu is extensive and the staff is helpful with suggestions. You can count on the Fajitas and Burritos. Dianne usually gets a Margarita and the Chimichanga. I recommend Fish Tacos or Carne Chihuahua or Carne Asada. Delicious.
