In Billings for biz... decided to check-out Hardin (about 90 minutes away) and had a wonderful meal at La Chalupa. As other reviewers have indicated, a small family-run operation... the teenage daughter who served us was a delight... and did a great job. The food...More

Stopped in Hardin after a long day of driving, and the hotel clerk suggested La Chalupa. Service was great and the food was authentic, tasty, and not greasy. Really enjoyed it and the price was right.
