As a local, have been going to this place since it opened several years ago. Always had very good food, reasonable prices and lively atmosphere. The initial charm has fizzled. Went there Saturday night for dinner with friends - annual tradition - and waited a full hour for our food after ordering. We were seated at 7:35 p.m. and received... More

I chose this restaurant for my birthday with my family. We originally had plans for dinner there, but made a last minute decision to have a late lunch there instead. We ended up getting there around 3 PM and the place was empty, except maybe one other table, which surprised me because there was some kind of Irish bar crawl... More

I went to Chichimecas because my friend Walter’s 10 year son Harry never had a burrito and I was not sure where to go. I went online and after reading reviews about several Mexican places I chose Chichimecas based on the reviews and cost too. Didn’t want to spend a lot of money and find out the kid hates Mexican...

Tonight we celebrated my Birthday there. AS always the food was fantastic and the service wonderful. I felt as if I were visiting the home of a... More

I think this is the fourth restaurant we've been to over the years at this location. All have been excellent. Three have closed. I hope the fourth time is the charm because we really liked Chichimecas. The food is authentic northern Mexican, the sangria is to die for, the service is exemplary, the decor is bright and cheery, and the... More

I had reservations somewhere else and then saw what looked like an authentic Mexican restaurant...I mean how can you pass that up??? Canceled my reservation and rebooked here...what a bad decision. It started out that they didn't have lemon for my water! Alone that would not have been an issue, but it kept getting worse. I LOVE guacamole, but we... More

We decided to check out this place on a Sunday with some of our friends after reading the Yelp reviews. Everything we ordered was so delicious. The fajita taco as well as shrimp tacos were very good and filling. Mojitos were top notch. Leave room for dessert with tres leches cake. Ambience is enhanced with live music that we really... More
