The service was very good as well as the food. We shared the fajitas for two and it was a combination of chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, chorizo sausage and veggies, Delicious! The tortillas were hand made and so soft. It came with a platter of bean, rice, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and guacamole. In addition there is a salsa bar with 6 types of salsa's (red and green), plenty of Pico de Gallo, as well chopped cilantro and onion. With our 2 drinks our bill totaled $18 - great deal for an evening out.

Liked everything about it. Very reasonable cost. Hot Mexican food and frosted mugs of beer. Great chips and salsa.

We wanted to eat out on the 4th of July and not much was open. We decided on El Chapala. The food was on the salty side. My wife requested black beans instead of the usual refried and they tasted like they just came out of the can. If it was known that a special request would result in getting canned beans, we would not have made that request.

Great food and service. Sure...a few kids around, and the waiter may not speak the Kings English. If that bothers you, move on to yuppie Mexicano-plastico Latte-land.

Otherwise, the food is excellent, prices are reasonable, and best of all...it is authentico! Great chips and Salsa Verde, huge Margaritas, and the Chile Rellenos were the best I've had this side of San Jose del Cabo..

Chips were greasy. Taco beef and enchilada chicken were greasy. Service was very slow. Screaming kids. Ladies bathroom was dirty.
