The Carne Guisada is on point!!! Meat was tender...not a lot of fat on it. Salsa tasted freshly made. Rice was fluffy like how my grandma used to make it. Beans were on par. Horchata was crisp and refreshing!

Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to eat at Chavelo's on a Saturday afternoon. When we arrived there was one other party. The waiter greeted us and took our order promptly. For an appetizer, we had queso to go along with the complimentary chips and salsa. The small order was delicious and the serving was larger than expected.... More

The Mexican food is good. It attracts of lot of regulars and is always busy. The food is priced well and you get a good sampling of whatever you order. Chips and salsa are good. They also serve beer and margaritas. Barbacoa is tasty and the tortillas are always hot. Enchiladas are good as well as taco salad. Wait staff... More

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.
