We frequent Chile peppers and so does my entire family. We love the employees and the owner is an extremely hard working woman who uses the best and freshest ingredients only. Our favorite is the Cecina con enchiladas. Margaritas are amazing and not filled with mix like most Mexican places on the island. We are customers forever!

I just had the worst dining experience of my life. I came here with my family on vacation. I ordered the soft taco meal with grilled chicken instead of shredded chicken. The “chef” came out and verbally attacked me in front of my family and the restaurant. She said that I was changing her menu and if it came out and I didn’t like it I would have to pay. I had no problem with that because it was what I wanted. I will never eat here again. The chef had no business coming out yelling at me as a paying customer. She was all over our table yelling. She was rude and that’s no way to treat a customer. Once she realized she was wrong and I was not changing her menu because I simply wanted to substitute grilled chicken for shredded chicken; She didn’t apologize. She made a huge scene. The waiter even apologized for her behavior. I will never eat here again and I will deter everyone I know from this place because of your rude chef!

I’ve never posted a review in my life but this was by far the worst restaurant I’ve been to. Received “beef enchiladas” that had no beef in them and was told we could pay an extra $7 for the beef we had already ordered. The bloody Mary’s were so spicy no one was able to drink them at our table. We ended up paying $180 for 2 people because they charged us for everything that was supposed to come on our food with out mentioning it Would be an up charge. Also had to end up paying for someone else’s food with our party because the waitress claimed it was not paid for when we have The receipt showing that it was. On top of everything, the food we did receive was AWFUL. We eat out a lot and have never complained. I am a server myself so I am always very considerate when it comes to things like this but i will say we will NEVER be back here and it was not a good experience at all.

Delicious, tasty Mexican food. I greatly enjoyed the fish tacos while my better half had the fantastic chicken tamales. Best Mexican food I've had in a long time. Excellent service, too.

I've literally never been so insulted. the owner told me I ordered the wrong thing when I asked the waitress why my cheese enchiladas contained no cheese. I was told by adding beef the enchiladas would contain no cheese. I said I didn't know that and asked if I could please just have cheese enchiladas then. she asked if I had ate the food I said no I cut into them and found no cheese and immediately told the waitress. she said I would have to pay for new enchiladas and I said then I would just eat what I was given. the owner came to the table ,and by the end of the conversation she called my date and myself "trash" and threatened to call the police AFTER WE PAID FULL PRICE FOR THE FOOD!!!. All because I asked for cheese in my CHEESE ENCHILADAS. CUSTOMER LOST. I've never been treated like this in a public place and my date was in tears after being called trash AT A MEXICAN RESTAURANT SHE HAS EATEN AT 10 TIMES BEFORE AND NEVER HAD AN ISSUE. I've never even written a review before but this woman went over board calling us "trash".

I called in an order for two huaraches combo. And an extra huarache on the side with no toppings. I repeated the order back to the person who took my order. To make sure he had it right. So when the person picking up the food for me call to make sure they had the right order. They didn’t. My name was not right or the person picking up the food name was not right. They had Ester as the name. They put the right order in. But charge me for the extra food they made which I did not place. When delivered to me I call to find out why I was charge for something I did not order. The owner got aggressive towards me. Raise her voice on the phone. Stated her son took my order and her son never makes mistakes. I again I had repeated my order to make sure he had it right. Not once did he say he couldn’t hear me. Instead of apologizing for a mistake, she made me feel like it was fault they made a mistake. Absolutely disappointed as I do love their huaraches. That’s the only reason I visit this establishment. In no shape or form should a customer be yelled at over the phone. Terrible customer service. Definitely would not be recommending this place to any one.

Every to go order I get has my order right on the ticket and when I get home it’s wrong… last time the cheese wasn’t included and this time my shredded was ground instead

We had a lovely dinner here yesterday. I tried something different, the huevos ranchero burrito . I hope the description is near-to-correct. My husband got an enchilada platter. Both were very good. There were 4 of us, and our server took great care of us. She was friendly and efficient. I wish that I could compliment her; I thought that her name, as often is, would be on the receipt...but it was not. Sorry about that -I should have asked her.

Got delivery. These two small condiment containers of pico and guacamole were $11. Not at all worth it. The rest of the food was pretty good. But these “appetizers” are a joke.

Ordered the Texas Rice. Very good and Megan gave great service

It was just ok. food wasn’t hot and very bland. to get pico you have to pay for it. $8 for 2 tiny condiment size cups. waitress was accommodating. asked for more chips and never got them. since when does a mexican restaurant not keep the chips full?

Went there for my son’s 13th birthday with my husband and 3 boys (13, 3 and 1). We were there early so our children didn’t disturb others and there was one other table besides us until about 15 mins before we left.

The food was wonderful and the staff was super friendly. Megan was so helpful and friendly that we came back two more times. we're planning on moving to the area and just may make this our regular date night restaurant
