They have good Mexican food but the down side is they are not open in the evenings except for Thur. Fri and Sat. It is a very casual atmosphere and sometimes they have someone playing guitar. It is a good place for large groups of people. They have several TVs on different channels.

It appears to be a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant, but looks are deceiving. I have had some of the best Mexican food here.

I really dug the mix of South America, Mexican, and Puerto Rican flavored food! Nothing like I've ever had! If you want traditional, then look no further!!

In Thai restaurants my standard response about fire level is "Try to kill me," and I add a pepper sauce to their salsa, but the flavor of Chulas' dishes is delicate enough that I tend not to want them loaded with capsaicin. The cooking derives from Puerto Rico and Costa Rica, so do yourself a favor and try something other... More

This was an OK dining experience. Just like any other Mexican restaurant with the same style and taste. Usual chips and salsa, followed by ordinary enchiladas. Quite a lot of seating available, but wasn't terribly busy at lunchtime when we were there.

Stopped in here for lunch on 26 Feb after El Paisa was closed due to rain damage from a storm. Had a hankering for mexican. Restaurant was maybe 1/4 full. Promptly seated by hostess. Waitress brought menus and took our drink order. I asked about a drink on the menu I'd never heard of before (Jarrito's, I think) and she... More

Thought it would be great from reviews but was very disappointed. People were nice and friendly but food was very bland. We do not like extra spicy but this was kind of tasteless. Would not go back.

I love their chimi's, the chesse dip and salsa is my favorite. I've eaten mexican food from arkansas to tallahassee and this place hands down is my fav., from ms. Rita coming out checking on the food and our kids to the relaxing family feeling. I would call this like mexican soul food.
