We love it , my family and extended family get together and go there often . We're from white bear and we will drive over there instead of going anywhere around here. We have introduced this place to our neighbors and they love it and will make a special trip to eat there. The food is great ,the service is fast and the waiters are very pleasant. All of us love the atmosphere. The owner works in the restaurant as a waiter and great host.
I will recommend this place to all my friends.
I was really hoping this was going to be a great place to eat but sadly it wasn't :( I had high hopes because their was a lot of people there too. I went around Christmas time and they had just one single mariachi dude dressed up with his guitar singing, it was nice ambience, but I think the only song he knew has Flez Navidad and he must have sung it 20 different ways when I was there. Food was average and so was the service.
Pros: The ambience was nice.
Cons: Average all around with food and service.
It's nice when one receives complimentary chips and salsa. It's even nicer when the tacos are delicious! The decor was pretty kitschy and gawdy, but if you can get past that, it's a great place for Mexican food....especially if you're bored of the Mexican chain restaurants. Nothing fancy or too memorable, but I'd return again.
Pros: complimentary chips/salsa, attentive staff
Cons: cheesy decor
So yes, the temperature is always a little cold and the food isn't authentic, but Chula Vista offers a great value with speedy service. It has been a family and friend favorite for me for quite some time now. The owner is super nice and everything always turns out great. Plus, if you're a regular they definitely go the extra mile to show you that they appreciate your business!
Pros: price, staff
Cons: too cold inside!!!
This is an okay Mexican restaurant. Not great, not bad -- just okay. The ground beef in my enchiladas seemed awfully grainy, and the beans and rice weren't terribly tasty, but my companion's "taco grande" looked more tasty, with many yummy things rolled in a soft flour tortilla. If you want more authentic Mexican, drive 2 miles north to the West Side. If you want fast food Mexican, go across the street to Taco Bell. But if you want a reasonably priced sit-down Mexican after your trip to Target, try Chula Vista.
Pros: Low prices, Alcohol served
Cons: Bland food, Overdone decor
