Ordered a Hot Dog, person who made it just did not know how. The Location and Parking Lot was not much better. Just did not have a good experience.

The food here is awful. My son ordered the Chelo's Plate, which appeared to be a tortilla with microwaved Cheese Whiz on top. I ordered an enchilada with green sauce. It came with canned, starchy red sauce. The beans were also canned and dried out....More

This is NOT authentic Mexican food. If you liked canned sauce, canned beans and "enchiladas" in store bought flour tortillas this place is for you. Not authentic. Not worth the calories. If you know good, real Mexican food and that is what you are after...More

Don't come here expecting authentic Mexican food. This is a neighborhood diner that just happens to serve burritos instead of burgers. They use a lot of Velveeta. It's not good or bad, it's just comfort food. Most of the people in Chelos at any time...More

Maybe I just hit it on a wrong night but the attitude of both servers was lacking a lot. Not friendly at all..... except maybe to the regulars who came in. Food was so-so.... doubt I will go back.
