This place serves a typical taqueria menu, but it is well prepared and super yummy! Be sure to take a menu since you will want to order take-out, too! Everything on the menu is tasty and not too spicy (but they can make it so if you want) If you want a place where the locals go, this is it!

I love El Chilito, they make the best wet burrito I've ever had. They are always busy and a favorite of Canby locals. This is a must eat if you are passing through.

This tiny restaurant was recommended by the cleaning gal at our motel. We enjoyed their wet burrito special at lunch and went back for a 9pm snack later. Definitely recommend :)))

El Chilito is a small family-run restaurant on the highway in Canby. It is very clean. The employees are help and friendly. The food is authentic Mexican. My favorite is the machaca breakfast burrito. The tamales are excellent, although not always available. Saturday and Sunday mornings they serve menudo to help you with your hangover. Portions are huge and prices... More

The food is awesome. The Chile Rellenos are not over breaded or too cheesy. Love the crispy pork carnitas. Lots of food for a good price. The only drawback is the size. It's tiny and there is not much seating but I should say with all the takeout we've ordered from El Chilito I have not once come home and... More

You can call ahead and place an order which I recommend during meal times. My son always gets the nachos, I love the sopes and wet burrito. The horchata is tasty and refreshing while the salsas are fresh. Limited seating.

This is the kind of "fast food" that we like, but you aren't going to be losing any weight on their food. Nevertheless, the salsas on the counter and the clientele do reassure you of their authenticity. Staff is friendly, guacamole is delicious, and the pulled beef taste wonderful. Scrap some of the rice and beans for a slightly lower... More

My sister-in-law lives in Canby and frequents this tiny little Mexican restaurant. She took us for breakfast burritos and they did not disappoint. My wife got chicken muchaca breakfast burrito, I got the steak breakfast burrito and sister-in-law got the taquitos. The food was quick and the salsas were all delicious. We'll be back next time we're in town. I... More

Great Food, Great Prices. There's not much seating available, so we always order takeout. There is often a line so be prepared to wait a few minutes.
