Cafe Chilingo is a gem! The food is wonderful -- flavorful, fresh, locally sourced and beautifully prepared by the owner, Elena, who is delightful and attentive to food allergies without sacrificing texture/flavor. I'll definitely be back and am already telling people about this place!

They have a new menu which includes a hot dog buffet which seemed interesting! We got the family dog and Chicago dog... Both were good but the family dog was amazing... French fries were also excellent and hand cut(a must!)
