Chavella's rules! Although very cramped, it is charming, with friendly, attentive waitstaff and excellent food.

The tamale with mole and chicken is superb, the elote is delicious, although rather messy, and I was shocked to see tlacoyos (very well executed), a typical Mexico City street food on the menu at all! The nopales were tasty and tender, the rajas con papas were perfectly roasted and delicious. The refried beans and homemade salsas were great.

This is the most authentic Mexican place I have ever been to in the US. After living in Mexico for the past two years and being disappointed in all Mexican restaurants, Chavella's succeeded in satisfying my longings for delicious, authentic, Mexican cuisine.

Chavella's has an excellent assortment of tacos, quesadillas, tortas as well as soups, salads and other larger plates of Mexican food. The guacamole is fantastic and that is the truest test of a good Mexican restaurant. It's very cute and very small, so go with just a friend or two.

the ambience is great here, which really isnt a surprise for this quaint up and coming neighborhood. Make sure to get the corn, and the tacos are to die for. My dog was welcomed and was allowed to sit next to my table on the patio.

From 4-7, you can get $2 tacos and $3 beer. What can possibly be better. The restaurant is small try to get there early. Also their tamales and tortas are great and competitively priced.

This little neighborhood gem is tops on my take out rotation. I've yet to have something I dislike from Chavella's.

Order Plato Don - enough for lunch (steak) & dinner (chicken) for $14.

some of the best home made rice pudding!

Extremely affordable authentic Mexican food!!!!

Pros: Authentic/tastey food

Cons: kind of small, but made up for in food!

Authentic and affordable, this place is really yummy. The chicken mole, the fish taco, the trio of salsas are all great. The Plato Don (vegetarian) is huge. It's really small, table service is limited and sometimes confused, and you might have to wait, but it is worth it.

This small neighborhood place is amazing.
Maybe 7 or 8 2-person tables fill this small hole-in-the-wall and the 1 waitress bounces around with a smile making sure everyone is happy. And they are.
Fantastic Mexican food for an unbeatable price. I grew up in San Diego and am always on the lookout for authentic Mexican and this is it. Everything is so fresh, you can practically see everything being made in the kitchen.
Everyone on staff is exceptionally nice to customers and service is great, even delivery is served hot.
Still BYOB so stock up on Negra Modelo at the neighboring bodegas before going inside.
It won't be long before they need a bigger place. I can't wait!

Great addition to the area. We need more places like this! Please support the Chavella's so that more small business owners consider Prospect Heights!!!

We live across the street and have been customers from the start. This is a small, cozy, BYOB, local joint that never disappoints. The food is fresh, authentic and satisfying. The selection is large enough to please most palates and the price is small enough to please most pockets. They also have quick delivery for the homebodies. If you're in the area it will be worth your try!

I've been here a number of times and we've always been very pleased with the food and the service. Many eateries in the crown heights area tend to lack in the service area but we've always had prompt and pleasant service here.

The menu isn't extensive and its not loaded with traditional americanized items like tacos and burritos so if you're just looking for a no-frills taco joint, this isn't it. The portions are smaller than other mexican places I've eaten at but they're quite satisfying and the food is considerably better than most. So be sure to get an appetizer or have a taco with your meal.

Vegetarians will be pleased with the selection and they currently don't serve beer so bring your own (there's a bodega next door). The brunch is also well worth a visit.
