Excellent restaurant, great service, very clean, exactly what we wanted. Not too Americanized, a good mixture of traditional flavors and entrees. Chips were great, salsa was great, a stand out in a tough market with lots of options. Beans were great, clearly not from a...More

We got 2 bean and cheese burritos and a shredded chicken taco to go. We also got an order of rice and beans to go. All the food was very good, and the rice and bean serving very large. We enjoyed it on the go.

The seafood chimi changa was so good. The seafood was done perfectly. However the margarita that I ordered (blended) I could not drink. The mix had aspartame in it and the tequila was harsh. That aside, I will be back for the food.

This is an understated restaurant but one that has terrific and tasty Mexican food. Came to Salem for a week's visit and was lucky to have found it on trip advisor on the first day. Great value for the money as well.

We have been going here for years and it is awesome. The food is wonderful! The pozole, carne asada and enchiladas are wonderful! The Pina Coladas and Strawberry daiquiris are sooooo good too! I totally recommend Chula Vista!

Stopped in for lunch and was surprised by the authenticity of this place. The tortillas are made fresh from masa when you order. The food was beyond my expectations and I highly recommend this place.

We stopped here on our way back towards Portland. We enjoyed the food, we had their chimichangas. Delicious and authentic. Only one thing had me a little concerned. While eating, we noticed, one of the staff stepped out of the door with a patron and...More
