Very good basic mex resto, wonderful staff, outdoor seating. We loved the food and the service. My wife said the enchiladas were the best she has ever had. Micheladas available, choice of wheat or corn tortillas. Go.

Since I was staying at El Tres Inn which is above El Chavo, and I love Mexican food, it was only logical that we have a meal there while I was visiting. The food was good, the service good with friendly staff. My only regret...More
