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.

Food was really good..I had the american sampler..we went after church at 9am for breakfast and it was packed. We sat in the patio and enjoyed the cloudy day. The service was slow and we had to ask for utensils, napkins and missing items from our order.

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.

The Carne Guisada is on point!!! Meat was tender...not a lot of fat on it. Salsa tasted freshly made. Rice was fluffy like how my grandma used to make it. Beans were on par. Horchata was crisp and refreshing!

Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to eat at Chavelo's on a Saturday afternoon. When we arrived there was one other party. The waiter greeted us and took our order promptly. For an appetizer, we had queso to go along with the complimentary chips and salsa. The small order was delicious and the serving was larger than expected.... More

The Mexican food is good. It attracts of lot of regulars and is always busy. The food is priced well and you get a good sampling of whatever you order. Chips and salsa are good. They also serve beer and margaritas. Barbacoa is tasty and the tortillas are always hot. Enchiladas are good as well as taco salad. Wait staff... More
