We stopped for dinner at La Chinita. I grew up in the area and knew the original owners of the original restaurant named Tepa. I have been eating there since the 1970's. The food has remained good and the service is always top notch. I was hooked on chips and salsa back in the early days of the Tepa. I... More

We've been eating there for over 30 years. The food and service is always consistent. Ownership and management has changed over the years. Several servers have been there forever. Ask for the kitchen sauce to go with your chips. Add some Pico de Gallo to the salsa. Get guacamole. The plates always look fresh, not the nuked look that so... More

My 1st visit. I was greeted instantly and had my choice of tables. Water and chips with choice of mild or hot salsa was on the table pronto. They offerings were not necessarily all authentic..Chile Con Carna? But it was good and plenty. Margarita was Ok. Plenty of service and no waiting to pay. Enjoy!

Ate there over the Thanksgiving holiday. There were five of us and four of us really enjoyed our food. The one that ordered fajitas hated them. He's the kind of guy that eats anything so for him not to eat them, they must have been pretty bad.

We found this great place to eat by a recommendation from family that has lived in Wichita for years. High quality, homemade mexican food that you will enjoy. They offer both hot and mild sauce with the chips. I would highly recommend you getting BOTH. For me the mild is too mild and the hot is a little hot, but... More

With so many Mexican restaurant options available to diners, it takes something special to keep people coming back for more, and La Chinita does this. I stop by a couple of times a month on average. The service is fast and friendly. While the menu may not be as vast as one finds at some chain restaurants, the food is... More

The food was tasteless and bland. The service also left something to be desired. I would not recommend it at all.

We were informed this place has been around for about 30 years, and I can see why. The food was really good. There is plenty of parking, and we got in with no wait. The chips and salsa were great, and the food was wonderful. I mixed the hot and mild salsa for a perfect combo. The fajitas were cooked... More

A Wichita tradition, for many decades, popular with folks from poor to rich. Though it's not in an elegant neighborhood, this is a classy moderate-sized Mexican restaurant, where the food (and lots of it) never disappoints, and the prices are comfortable, if not dirt-cheap. Too many chairs and tables crammed together too closely for the rather small number of customers... More

The hot and mild sauces mixed together are great with their good tasting and wrm chips. I had the number 5 dinner, pork burrito , beef taco with fried shell, and beef enchilada . The taste was very good. The enchilada reminded me of the ones served on the Mecixan west coast. Taco included lettuce and tomatoe and the meat... More
