Went for dinner mid-week. Place was nearly empty and now I see why. Most of the empty tables were dirty and were waiting to be cleaned. The dining room was set to an uncomfortable 80 degrees. The server was slow and unattentive. He spent more time socializing with his co-worker in the corner of the restaurant. The salsa is bland. Most importantly, the vegetarian dish I ordered had meat in it. When addressed this with the server he tried to tell me I didn't specifiy vegetarian. I showed him the menu which clearly stated the entree was vegetarian. Item was sent back and did NOT request replacement. I will never return nor will I ever suggest for anyone to go there.

Go only for the drinks and chips/salsa. We have had good experiences there in the past, but here were the many problems with this meal:
1. We ordered only two meals and two sides. Both sides did not come out and we had to ask for them half way through our meal.
2. Both entrees were room temp.
3. When one of us sent back the meal and asked for a hot one, they returned one that was heated in the microwave. Came out chewy.
4. The fajitas, as well as most other dishes, were bland; the only flavor was from the vegetables themselves; there were no spices.
5. The burrito was the size of a tiny Taco Bell side burrito.
6. Nice young server, but not adept at serving.
7. No hot sauces for the side; no Tapatio, Valentino, or any other.
Unless they improve their scene, I'd recommend you go for a few drinks (but the margaritas were too sweet) and then go to eat somewhere else. I hope they straighten out their kitchen and servers.

I love this restaurant! I have eaten at Chicano's for several years and have not found a Mexican restaurant to top it yet! The staff is wonderful and the food is amazing!!! You should stop on in and give them try. Plus the price is good on the wallet!

Chicano's is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Lakeland. Not only are their meals served fresh, they are a great value. We love the salsa and chips to start with and LOVE the chimichangas! The service is quick and the staff are very friendly. This is somewhere kids are definitely welcome as well!

My wife and I love their quesadillas and chimichangas. The quality of the food is typical good and the value for the money is right on.

PROS: Value for the money.
CONS: Sometimes slow service when they get busy.

This place is fantastic! I love the spinach quesadilla! It is awesome. The chimichanga is equally as good. I love the atmosphere here. It is great for a family to eat here.

Me and my husband would eat there at least once a month. The price, atmosphere and selection were what we were looking for on a week night or for lunch. We went in last week and have never been treated so badly at a resturant. The waitress pretty much ignored us. We would ask for salsa and she would roll her eyes and then bring it 20minutes later. She rolled her eyes about everything we asked for. The sad thing was she had been our waitress before, lots of times. We didn't finish our meal it was all a little undercooked and there was no time to sit and wait for her to come ask us how things were. We left and told the hostess we would never come back. It sucks 'cause at one time it was pretty good.

PROS: price, selection
CONS: staff
