Lash of ours has great food, the owner is very funny guy, and they serve you very quickly whether you are a large group or a small group. Great place on Sunday afternoon, they have a big screen TV where you can watch football games in the fall.

Served us chip and salsa right away. They was good he brought us water also after that it was a good 20 min before he came to take our order. I got chicken fajitas I was not impressed the meat was shredded chicken. Beans and rice was mediocre.

They have a decent menu, but do not hesitate to order off the menu. I prefer Chili Verde pork burritos with beans, cheese, guacamole, no problema. Ask for the hotter salsa for your chips as their normal salsa, while flavorful is just OK. True Mexican, not a "wanna be." Their beer is bottled but.......Green Flash!

We've eaten here a couple times and haven't been disappointed. We are still pretty new to the area but this place does it right. We come from yakima WA. Where Mexican food is on every corner. Thus place competes with the best of them. Give them a shot. 25 years in business they must be doing something right. Even going... More

This restaurant used to be one of our favorites, but over the years it has declined in the freshness of the food and their salsa changed a few years back, so we now only rarely visit instead of young at least once a month.

After a movie we decided we were hungry as we passed by Azteca. Problem was their 30 minute wait on a weeknight. Hopped in the car and stopped here on the way home. No wait. Service was friendly and food was very good. The so-called hot salsa was not at all hot- however very tasty! Nice touch that the owner... More

Nothing on the lunch special plate (a deep fried taco, cheese enchilada, rice & beans) tasted either fresh or close to "authentic" Mexican. $18 for two, just water. The place is OK and the service is great but the food, well, terrible. Not Recommended

If you are looking for the best mexican food and also the best priced mexican food in town- Las Chavelas has it. The owner is usually working and it fun and funny to make for an enjoyable dining experience.

While in Coeur d'Alene recently, we decided to have lunch at Las Chavelas where we had enjoyed a meal previously. While on our first visit, we rated our lunch as among the better Mexican meals we'd eaten, on this visit we unfortunately came away quite disappointed. Not sure what has happened in the interim! The four in our party all... More
