Eaten Mexican food many times at many restaurants in Yuma but their dinner plate of rolled taco's was fixed just perfect. Not to crisp and crunchy but a moist firm texture with a great flavor. The tamales tasted home made and probably were. We had...More

The restaurant was first opened as a dance hall in the '40's. The food was a way to keep the party going. The Chretins used recipes from their families, and made sure that the portions were large. The original restaurant is sadly no more, but...More

We had great food and great service. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Our order was served just as we ordered. The interior of the restaurant is decorated very well. We will be coming back to visit.

Chips I think were homemade - came to table hot. Skeptical about the salsa with giant chunks of stewed tomatoes in it but turned out to be pretty zesty. My 1946 (shredded beef) Enchilada was SO good. Very tender shredded beef. If I had known...More

Having been to Chretin's previously, we decided to take some friends there for a Mexican dinner on our last night in Yuma this winter trip. While the meals we had were 'ok', we were disappointed that they were not as good as we had experienced...More

Dropped in here for a beer and a burrito and it was very good. My companions all had good things to say about their meals as well. One thought their shredded beef taco salad was a bit greasy, but she ate the whole thing, so...More
