“CLOSED”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This place was so great, one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, but strangely closed last week. There was no warning, just closed. No one knows exactly why. :(

“A little noisy”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The service and the food were for the most part acceptable. However, the location of the open kitchen so close to the dining area made it very difficult to converse.

“Excellent Mexican food in a family-owned restaurant.”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

I was in Sanger visiting relatives and when the topic of going out to lunch arose, I left the choice to the natives. It seems best to go where the locals go whenever possible. The unanimous choice was Chapala. Very interesting because when I was here in June my other relatives chose the same restaurant. I always eat enchiladas when checking out a new restaurant. Chapala's restaurant was as good as it gets. All at my table agree that the family owning and serving in the restaurant are lovely, friendly people who care very much about presenting both excellent service and food.
