This place feels like a find. The menu was varied and different from most Mexican fare. Very reasonably priced. Margaritas are shaken, not stirred.

We got there and were told the wait was 1/2 hour. 2 hours later we order and get the food. It was awful - I did not know why in the world people stood in line to wait for this food - I could have gotten better at Jose Tejas. Never again would I go back - even the salsa and chips were nothing to talk about. The good thing was the drinks - that was it. Food was way pricey for Mexican food but drinks were rightly priced. I don't get the lines - are there are no Mexican Restaurants nearby to compare to? Wow. And we got the check before we were asked if we wanted anything else on top of everything. Forgettaboutit.

We were so happy that Chilango's has re-opened after the devastation of Sandy. Stopped in tonight and my husband had the pork burrito and I had the chicken flautas. Both were yummy, fresh and piping hot!!!!

Service was excellent and prices are reasonable. Get there early because it's small and when we left around 6 there was a line outside waiting and the bar area was full as well. It is pretty noisy so I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic date night.

We drive all the way from Brick, just to eat dinner there. Fantastic food, good prices and friendly service. One of the three best Mexican places in Monmouth and ocean county in my opinion.
