Charming and attractive little place with inventive takes on classic Mexican food, using locally grown produce and seafood. The owners are warm and friendly, and obviously love what they do. They offer several different Margaritas, and I can attest that the Favorita is delicious!

Had happy hour here two nights in a row. Great margueritas, nice outdoor setting, very friendly staff, and good food - highly recommended.

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.

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?

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.
