Great Atmosphere, friendly staff, and delicious food. Good portion size, however, I have had better churros. I recommend this restaurant.

Lunch was delicious. My husband ate a veggie burrito that I couldn't help taking a few bites of myself. I'll definitely order my own next time. I had the Crazy Loco Fries which had the best pica de gallo I've ever eaten. Definitely recommended.

They really aim for that real Mexican/Latin American flavour! And it's well delivered! We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the service provided! The place was clean, including the bathrooms! Their home made hot sauce it's delicious, they have marketed so people can buy it to take home! I would go back there again.

I refrained from visiting Tres Chiles when they did not accept credit cards or have a liquor (beer) license. That has changed and it is good to have them among my dining options. It is not an scale restaurant - in fact, it is relatively plain but at least the ersatz Mexican decor is kept to a minimum. The server/greeter... More

I was hesitant to try this restaurant because the reviews were mixed but I desperate for some Mexican food and thought it was worth a try. I ordered the chimichanga. It looked good but didn't have much flavour. The service was friendly. I won't return to this restaurant because of the lack of flavour. I wanted to really like this... More

I got take out from Tres Chiles as I was exploring new options for Mexican cuisine in town. I really enjoyed their burrito and I am looking forward to going back and trying other things in the menu. My only concern was that they placed fried beans in the take out package with chips and the burrito. When I got... More
