This restaurant has great breakfasts, lunches and dinners at a reasonable price. The portions are large and they give you free chips and salsa. The atmosphere is casual and they serve beer.

Quaint place that has good food. A little tricky to get into the parking lot from certain directions but worth the effort.

I always visit the Valley Drive location. The food is awesome and staff is super friendly and don't bug all the time but checked frequently enough to ensure great service. This is where locals come to eat.

Ordered the carnitas enchiladas, the meat was dry but the sauce made up for it. The chips and salsa were excellent, tasted like homemade chips not packaged. The rice and beans were fresh. Service was quick and excellent.

I've never really cared much for Chilitos, but it's OK for a quick lunch of NM food. It's not that it's bad by any means, but there's places I prefer more. We eat there from time to time. The service at the one uptown was...More
