A fantastic local alternative to Taco Bell. Mexican fast food. Tacos, burritos, platters, fajitas, and even desserts. The food is a must try and the service is fast and friendly.

We stopped by for lunch while driving through Mena. The service was excellent other than having to place order before being seated. That always drives me crazy. Food came quickly and was fresh and flavorful. The refried beans were especially good. I would definitely recommend for a quick lunch stop.

Chiquitas is a weekly stop for lunch. They have homemade refried beans that are great. Love all of their nachos. Their 5 pack of crunchy tacos is great for sharing!

My wife and I visited here to check out there, as advertised, authentic Mexican food. The town we live in has excellent authentic Mexican food. The tacos were bad but they were very far from authentic Mexican tacos. They are more like tacos from Taco Tico only in my opinion not quite as good. The taco sauce was a bit... More

I guess I need to brush up on my terminology of food descriptions these days, cause I would never say they have "authentic" Mexican food. The best way to describe what I ate was a composition of Sam's Club out of the can food. Cheese from a can, re-fried beans came from can, no homemade chips and they topped the... More
