It's not the most comfortable for dinner, but the food is descent. It's not a four or five star place. The servers are ok, nothing special. The prices are a little bit high for what you get. The parking is terrible.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after we learned that Kojacks was closed on Monday's. It's a fairly small restaurant but decorated very nice in the chihuahua theme. Chips and salsa were served in a dog bowl. The kids thought that was funny. The salsa was delicious. We all ordered from the lunch special menu. I had the carne asada tacos... More

What a cute restaurant in lovely neighborhood. The theme - those tiny little pooches the restaurant is named for - is carried out in the décor, but tastefully, not overwhelmingly. A very cute touch is that the multicolor tortilla chips are served up in dog bowls! The salsa and guacamole were some of the best I've ever had in a... More

My wife and I are huge fans of Miguel's, but stopped in here due to friends invitation. I like the chips/salsa more at Miguel's but the Carnitas are better at Chihuahua's. Beans and rice were also great. My wife got the fajitas and the steak was tender and well seasoned. Our friends had the Fish Tacos and Enchiladas and they... More

Even on Cinco de mayo the wait was not that long, the food delicious and the service was exceptional. Small, local Mexican restaurant. Highly recommend!

Menu isn't terribly unique or with much variety. But everything we come we can be guaranteed it's the same. Service can be a little slow. Margaritas are a little light on alcohol and taste more like lemonade. Taco salad is served in a hard shell bowl that's too hard to eat.

My family and I have eaten here a few times since we moved to Tampa 5 months ago. Their service is good and the food comes out pretty quick, even during the busy lunch time. Not the most Mexican food we've had but it's tasty.

These ladies know how to prepare and serve great Mexican food! Its small, its casual but you cannot beat the dishes or prices.
