We went to this restaurant on Saturday. I am in love! The food was absolutely wonderful. The restaurant is small but very authentic. We will be returning soon.

Chela's has the best Mexican food in Ann Arbor. My only complaint is that they only have carnitas occasionally. The elotes are amazing!

You order at the counter but don't let that fool you.. This is Mexican street food that is good and fast and very delicious. I love the Fist tacos. The tamales are also very good.

Prices are good but its because they serve very small portions. Each taco we got had about half of what I would expect. They don't have queso which is a standard on any Mexican take our order for us. The shredded beef in the tacos...More

The restaurant is quite small, located right next door to the liquor store. They do have a patio which was open when we were there in April. I got the carne asada and the chipotle chicken tacos along with sides - black beans and rice....More
