“Great dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

There was a group of about 20 of us and they were very helpful at getting us all seated. The chips and salsa were great and made in-house i'm sure. We all liked our dinners, food was delicious! Margarita on the rocks excellent.

“Bilbo's successor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Always loved the laid back atmosphere here whether you eat inside or in the really nice garden. Food is quite good, chile rellenos are some of the best you'll taste anywhere. Service can be a bit slow but when here you should be on island time, why rush it?

“This place has SO MANY problems!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

As you enter Chilada's from the sidewalk, you will immediately come to the cash register with an attendant, and one tiny little grill about 5' behind the cash register. One extremely harried cook works at a whirlwind pace at this poor little grill attempting to keep pace with all of the orders, but, sadly, she doesn't stand a chance! After waiting on the sidewalk for ten minutes, we were finally able to take the two steps to the cash register, where we ordered one margarita and one beer, as well as a burrito for each of us. We found a table on our own, and then waited....and waited. Eventually, I approached the cash register to inquire about our drinks, but couldn't get noticed because he was too busy. I finally snagged a waiter and got the drinks, but 40 minutes later, we still had not received our meals. No question we would have walked out if we had not already paid! When the burritos were finally delivered, there was a single, very lonely burrito on each plate...no beans, no rice, nada. Pitiful. All in all, the entire 'dining experience' was totally inadequate, and very expensive to boot!
It's one of those restaurants that have business because they are the only Mexican restaurant downtown. Just know that if Chilada's was located on the mainland, it would only survive as a food cart on a city street. Sorry, Chilada's....no recommendation here.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were in Eastsound during Labor Day weekend, so getting into a restaurant was difficult. We had seen Chilada's earlier in the day and thought they might be able to accommodate us. The decor is cozy and the service was very good. I tried the tacos with shredded pork and plantains and served on small corn tortillas. They proved to be quite good. If you like Mexican food, this place is a worthwhile stop.

“good happy hour drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Awesome happy hour margarita on the rocks my boyfriend loved. happy hour food was so so. The staff the first night 8/26/12 was alright the second night the hostess was rude and clueless. we asked if there was still happy hour knowing it was 5:48 pm (hh until 6 pm) she rudely said no. then looked at her watch....we walked out shortly after that. but very cute place,good parking.
