This place is right around the corner, so we visit a couple of times a month, usually on a Friday night. My husband likes the fried catfish dinner. I like the chicken quesadillas, or tacos. Chips and salsa-chips are greasy, and salsa has too many big chunks of onions for my taste. Noisy place-tile floor, high ceiling-unavoidable. Wait staff very... More

Every time we're in town, we make this a necessary stop. We've always been pleased and know that you would be too. Excellent food, outstanding staff, great atmosphere, and unbelievably low prices!

I am a repeat customer. I love their food. Loud atmosphere, friendly staff and always busy. The locals gather here for the food. Narrow parking spaces; so if you got a large pickup or similar, you may want to park on the street. The food is great at any time of the day. The portions are huge.

You can't beat $2.50 for breakfast. Breakfast taco w/coffee and side of beans. Ask server what's the daily taco special. Changes each morning (weekdays). Service was outstanding too.

I've been visiting Chapatis Restaurant for 11 years and I haven't had a bad meal yet. Great service, excellent food, daily specials, breakfast all day ... What else would you need?

My friend invited me here and paid, so I don't remember exactly what we had, or the prices. I just remember us both having excellent tacos and tea and the total being less than $10. I live in Austin, but I'll be sure to go back next time I am in Harlingen.

If you are looking for a quiet place to have a meal, Chapitas is not it. This restaurant is always busy with customers coming and going and food being served constantly. It has that small town local feel as you see people stopping to chat with one another as they come and go. Chapitas has several breakfast items that includes... More

The food is your typical mexican food but be prepared to wait for your order even if they are not busy. The two times i have been to this restaurant it has been at least an hour from arrival until we leave. I can understand if it was an atmospheric restaurant like chilis, applebees, texas roadhouse where you might relax... More
