Delicious lunch for two for under $20, yes, it is possible. This food was well prepared and well served and yes, quite reasonable too. The patio would be quite lovely when it's not so blasted hot.

Love their breakfast tacos, especially carne guisada! Also, all the enchiladas and tortilla soup are delicious! Small, quaint place with little parking, so best to go off times when not so busy. The owner and wait staff really try to please!

Chavelo's is a local family owned authentic Tex Mex restaurant. It's menu has all the usual Tex Mex faire, but once you've tasted their enchiladas, you may decide that nothing could be better.

They have pretty good breakfast tacos and coffee. I prefer their breakfast to lunch and dinner. Local favorite!

Love this place. The service is fast and friendly, the food is delicious, definitely not your average "chain" Mexican restaurant (it is solely owned by Chavelo himself who actually works there on many occasions). Definite home style recipes. Delicioso.

Someone said yes, but I say no! They taste like the bagged ones you buy at the grocery store! Nothing remarkable!
