If we go Mexican, we go Chapala. The food is always consistently good. They get you to your table quickly and waste no time getting chips, salsa and drinks to you. The food arrives at the table quickly as well. It is colorfully and attractively arranged on the plate - as much a feast for the eyes as the tummy. The chicken chimichanga is my personal favorite. I love it so much I never get anything else. My sons are better at trying different things and have never been disappointed. The choice is easy - Chapala for a deeply satisfying dining experience.

We enjoy our meals when ever we get a chance to visit. The service is prompt & friendly. We have been going there since it opened & have had good experiences every time.

Great food and lots of it! Really feels and tastes like an authentic Mexican restaurant. Lots of Chipala regulars in our group. None of us have been disappointed in any of the dishes. I like hot food and made the mistake of saying "Don't you have any sauce that is hotter?" I think that they took it a a challenge. The sauce that they brought could have removed paint, or at least seemed that way. Was great, though. Like most good restaurants, it is very busy on weekend evenings but things seem to move well and the wait isn't typically very long.

Food is very good. Some days it's better than others but I've never had a "bad" meal there. The chips and salsa is very good too.

Moved back to Olathe in December after being away 4 years. Yup, Chapala was as good as we remembered it to be. Friendly staff, fast service and the best chips and salsa every time. Chips are warm and crispy without being too greasy or salty. We would base all our other visits to MX restaurants on 'well, it wasn't as good as Chapala'. Reasonable prices and would highly recommend. We are fans of the fajitas with shrimp, chicken and beef and there is always PLENTY to split an order for 2 adults. Thanks for keeping this place as good as we remember!
