We really enjoyed it. I love their drinks and their food. The staff is also super nice and it's reasonably priced. Try the horchata

Quaint atmosphere with a Latin family gathering feel. Great courtyard and seating inside the house is like eating at grandma's house: chairs and tables all around. The food is great, good ol' Texas beer selection and the ladies said the margaritas were great!

The Pollo Supreme (fried chicken breast with taco meat and quest) is one of my favorites. Although, it is not consistently fantastic, at times the chicken breast was more the size of a tender and sometimes they slight you on the quest. Regardless, thflavor is always fantastic. They serve good breakfast tacos all day long. Chips and salsa are always... More

Been several times, a decent meal for sure. Quick and pleasant service. They do make a good breakfast. Had my Yankee parents come visit and they found MIGAS there!

This place is warm and inviting! The horchata is large and delicious. The retried beans are uniquely tasty. The salsa is fresh and abundant. They also have pralines.

It's the best I've ever had- real authentic flavor and great broth! Try it- you won't regret it! Don't add the fish to... More

If you want the real deal Mexican food, this is the place to try! Awesome carne guisada. The dining area is small and parking is tricky at times but overall a good place to eat or to have a Margarita or two!

I read the reviews about this restaurant and went on Thursday night February 11, 2016. I read about great fajitas and one in our party ordered them and I must say beef fajitas marinated in italian dressing and soy sauce is not traditional Mexican food. I tasted the fajita and would have returned the plate had I ordered it. The... More

Chavelo has always had the best Fajitas in Buda. I travel the state for business and eat in local restaurants only. I know first hand these are THE BEST in the state
