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.

I travel to Oregon state from the Midwest anywhere from 2 to 4 times a year since 2011. I don't go there without a special stop at Chula Vista (meaning I've been there at least 15 to 20 times in the past 5 years). The...More

My husband and I are from California's central valley where authentic Mexican food is available on every corner, and since moving to Salem we have had a very difficult time finding a place that rivaled our favorite Taqueria. This restaurant was probably the 9th or...More

I had a blackberry margarita and it was very good. I also had the chicken soft tacos. They were delicious. The chicken was moist and very flavorful. The staff was so attentive and extremely nice.
