I grew up in El Paso and have lived away from there for 42 years. Every time I go back home, I have got to get Chico's Tacos at least once on the visit. Good ole comfort food! Order the single orders even if you want more than the three tacquitos. More sauce and cheese that way. I normally get two orders. The locals all seem to like a side of french fries to go with theirs. We used to frequent the McRae location but since YISD took back the property we go to the one on Montwood. Had to order extra sauce, freeze it and bring it back for one of grandson's teachers in Keller, TX who is from El Paso. My only complaint is that the juke box is way too lound when it is playing.

Anyone who comes to this place either loves it or hates it. My personal recommendation is to go when your drunk or buzzing at 2 in the morning. The vibe here is awesome at that time and you will meet interesting people. Their food is tacos in tomatoe sauce smothered in cheese. Its actually a recipe from southern mexico but more Americanized. Rude service but its a dive and its kinda like fast food so who cares. Try the hotdog there its actually pretty good. An el paso staple to say the least and definitely a place the locals hang out.

I moved from El Paso over twenty years ago, but every time I visit I have to have Chicos Tacos. They are one of the best foods I've ever tried. They are not the best looking dish but boy are they delicious !

This is not a 5 star restuarant by no means but it has good inexpensive taquitos in sauce that taste very good.
