This place is so popular that you might have to wait a while to get your take-out food. I recommend ordering ahead and then going to pick it up. The burritos and tacos are delicious and authentic! Chips are ok, we bought a bag of Juanitas and our own salsa to go with our meal.

By far the best Mexican food in town A great little place for takeout that gives you food in abundance. They're super burrito will feed four people. The food is fresh and the staff is wonderful. Family run and probably gone, this place is a little gem. For a quick bite on a budget you can't beat this place. Even... More

Convenient, quality take out lunch or dinner. Good service. Always busy. Best to call order ahead of time so it's ready upon arrival. Burritos and street tacos are top notch!

Possibly one of the worst places to try & park when it is busy. And there is no room in the facility either. But the food is good & I can see why this place was busy. You would almost have to wonder how much busier they would be with a well thought out floor plan & room to park.

This place serves a typical taqueria menu, but it is well prepared and super yummy! Be sure to take a menu since you will want to order take-out, too! Everything on the menu is tasty and not too spicy (but they can make it so if you want) If you want a place where the locals go, this is it!

I love El Chilito, they make the best wet burrito I've ever had. They are always busy and a favorite of Canby locals. This is a must eat if you are passing through.

This tiny restaurant was recommended by the cleaning gal at our motel. We enjoyed their wet burrito special at lunch and went back for a 9pm snack later. Definitely recommend :)))

El Chilito is a small family-run restaurant on the highway in Canby. It is very clean. The employees are help and friendly. The food is authentic Mexican. My favorite is the machaca breakfast burrito. The tamales are excellent, although not always available. Saturday and Sunday mornings they serve menudo to help you with your hangover. Portions are huge and prices... More

The food is awesome. The Chile Rellenos are not over breaded or too cheesy. Love the crispy pork carnitas. Lots of food for a good price. The only drawback is the size. It's tiny and there is not much seating but I should say with all the takeout we've ordered from El Chilito I have not once come home and... More

You can call ahead and place an order which I recommend during meal times. My son always gets the nachos, I love the sopes and wet burrito. The horchata is tasty and refreshing while the salsas are fresh. Limited seating.
