“Chavas near Hilton is good”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Everyone in our family enjoyed the food. Fajita and chicken nachos were great. Tables are a little wobbly and they need some noise dampening items. Overall good experience.

“Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

My family owns a Mexican restaurant down In Florida and the food served at Chavas is so similar to what we serve at the restaurant . The layout is very similar to qdoba or subway in the sense that they make your food for you in a cafeteria style line.. location is walking distant from ISU and downtown terre haute. Staff is usually friendly. The guacamole is extra, and I don't recall if the sour cream is. The large burrito is the size of your head, while the regular burrito is just the right size. They also have a secret 'hot sauce' which lives up to its name.. There has to be something hotter than a habinero in that salsa because it is spicy. I usually order the three tacos and sides or a regular half shredded beef and half chorizo burrito. Never disappoints.

“Delicious!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Chava's is like the Subway of Mexican food. It's delicious and fresh! I recommend the chorizo or el pastor in a burrito or as taco salad. I also love their guacamole (even though its an extra $1). It is a little pricey, but completely worth it!

“Local style Qdoba/Chipotle”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Offers burritos very similar to larger chains but has a wider selection of toppings. Nachos, tacos, and many other selections are available. Value is very similar to the chains.

“Good and fast, close walk to where we were staying.”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

It was a bit hard to understand the waiter but still enjoyed the food.
Reasonably priced menu and an OK selection of beers. Decor is a bit overdone, good friendly staff.
