We are always made to feel welcome here. When we are hungry for a filling meal, we brave the hood and go to this Chelinos. They are always happy to see us, the food is always good, and there is plenty of it. Don't miss the cold beer served with crushed lime on the rim of the glass!!

I was in a hurry at work. Drove in and asked for a burrito to go, quick. There was a bit of a language barrier, but in a Mexican place, THATS AWESOME. But they were very nice and quickly made me a great burrito. I was also pleased to see on the menu the burritos can come in different sizes,... More

This is a good mexican food, I have eaten here each week for the past 6 weeks. The outside of the place is old, but the inside is clean and the service very good for me. Nothing fancy just good food. As of the past few years, mexican food has become kinda pricey. They have a $5.99 enchilada special (2)... More

Five of us ate. Four of us loved it. The beef was a tad over cooked (we prefer ours medium rare) and the shrimp a tad undercooked (only slightly punk). Everything else was extraordinary. Do yourself a favor ... don't touch the flour tortillas until your meal arrives or you will never touch anything else. The service was excellent. Cannot... More

Food was ok at best, waitress hardly spoke English and acted as if she did not comprehend either way was preoccupied with something going on in her life other than us, food wasn't anything to write home about, salsa sucked, on a bright note THE BEER WAS COLD AND HAD CRUSHED LIME ON THE RIM!!! AMAZING!!!

I discovered this Chelino’s one day after accompanying some co-workers out to lunch. The restaurant is located in an old building on south Robinson, in a rather rough part of town. But the area seems reasonably safe, so long as you keep your wits about you and visit during daylight hours. But I wouldn’t let the location deter you –... More

Very disappointed in the service as well as the food. Did you know that Fajita DO NOT come with tortillias?

The last time I went here the food was so greasy that I couldn't eat much of it. It seems like they just pile a ton of cheese on everything. Chelino's does have good salsa and cheese sauce though. The waiter was prompt and friendly as well. This place is not really vegetarian friendly, except for cheese based items.

All the Chelino's restaurants are great for Mexican food. They have several locations and I have never been disappointed. Food is served hot and fast and the prices are the best. Food quality is high too. Service is always friendly and attentive. This is our favorite Mexican restaurant!
